A couple of laughs. Pretty typical - writers didn't want to spend the time writing good jokes, so instead just had a guy say the "f" word a lot. Would really love to see a good comedy - with funny jokes and circumstances, that can stand on its own without the tiring language. This is definitely not that
Best comedy I've seen in a long time.
Perfect casting, perfect plot. Lmao'd
unexpectedly hilarious! loved it! laughed through whole movie!!! disappointing that its almost out of theater! Going to go see it again!
Very funny, pretty rude, I think I learned a few new things?? lol. All around feel good comedy, I really enjoyed the lighthearted goofiness. James Franco is very versatile as an actor but seems most at home playing an oddball.
The actor should not working on this movie. He has talent. The movie was out of line. Nonsenses scenes. Lazy jokes and vulgar language.
It was very funny. Language was a little rough but I would see it again.
James Franco is actually a brilliant man. He has a Ph D! He should pursue an academic career - and stay away from garbage films like this one!!
One star. What a piece of junk of movie.
When this movie is going to away? Horrible movie.
Movie for people who can't or don't want to think. Vulgar language and very stupid. I went to watch the movie because the rates. My money back please.
It had the potential to be funny but due to it highlighting the horrible language I just got bored with it. I would guess it may be better for a more immature audience.
Too much vulgar language on this movie and this movies puts Western culture on bad light, to some extend this movie is a reality in the Western World.
Boring. Repeating jokes from other movies. Cheap movie.
Super funny movie, we loved this movie very much. Thank you for the opportunity.
If you like potty mouth comedy then this movie is for you! It had some good moments however the it was a bit too long. The Xmas theme was a good try could not compare the home alone or bad Santa..
funny, funny and funny.
A ok movie if you want to kill a couple of hours. Some humorous moments
I walked into the theater not knowing what to expect, but i sure am glad i did. The mix of crude humor and a classic story was an excellent combination and made for some great laughs. the story line was basic but worked well to progress the humorous aspect of the film. Both James Franco and Bryan Cranston played believable characters and did a good job of keeping it that way. Is it worth a re-watch? I do believe so that in the future i will be sitting down with some friends and chuckling my way through it again.
Vulgar. Bad language. No brains.
I really enjoyed it. Crazy but funny. Laughed at the zany things.
Funniest movie I have seen in a long time! James Franco was hilarious.
A laugh out loud movie, a well spend 2 hours of entertainment.
Boooring and Stupid
A bit cliche but overall a really funny, feel good movie.
Why Him? Was quite an enjoyable movie. The movie is a bit over the top, but much more tame than other Franco movies like sausage party.
Above average little adult comedy but not as original as it strove to be.
This movie was very funny and we laughed a lot. The language was a bit much at the start f the movie when the family was meeting. But, I would watch it again as I am sure that we missed some of the humor on house decor/planning events/staff encounters and general flow of the movie.
I found that once I got past the F### word the movie was quite funny and unique in some of its portrayals. One could relate at various levels and did not have to be any particular age. I laughed much more than I had expected at humour that was actually funny and not just a reaction to some crude suggestion.
My daughter and i laughed the entire movie,we very much enjoyed it.
It was a really funny movie really loved it
Funny, crazy and well paced. This film makes good use of the actors' styles and I found it quite entertaining.
This movie was a big laugh and surprisingly excellent with wonderful actors and actresses. I enjoyed this movie starting off 2017.
A few laughs here and there, but no big belly laughs...predictable movie..nothing too special.
Hilarious but a bit raunchy..
Why Him was very funny, enjoyed the movie. Says a lot about accepting people for you they are.
At first I thought "Why Him" would be another silly and stupid Christmas comedy. I was pleasantly surprised, it was very funny from start to finish. I thought Bryan Cranston was good in a comedy, instead of playing the heavy Walter White. I would give "Why Him" a three star rating. I enjoyed the movie. At the end of the movie, the audience actually applauded, I guess they enjoyed the movie also.
So funny! Bryan Cranston and James Franco...hilarious!
Hilarious holiday comedy with moments that can be relatable to many people. If you want to laugh, go see it; but don't bring the little ones.
Thoroughly enjoyed "Why Him?". James Franco & Bryan Cranston clashed beautifully! Loved the dynamics & the humour. A great night out!
The movie had good actors and was quite funny even though it had a little too much profanity and nudity in it for my taste.
Hilarious, not what I was expecting.
I went into the movie expecting a dumb comedy with a few laughs, but it was actually a dumb comedy with a lot of laughs! Franco and Cranston were both great together, and thankfully the trailer doesn't give all of the jokes away. The plot is really nothing to write home about -- boy doesn't get along with his girlfriend's father and has to win him over -- but the laughs more than make up for it. I definitely recommend checking it out.
Super funny. Bryan Cranston's best.
A good movie to go to when you just need a few laughs. Not a classic but not terrible.
Gorgeous and rich set designs and interesting use of electronic tech in the home. It was refreshing to see a movie about adolescent empowerment instead of teenage angst via Franco. Less profanity and slapstick would have made the movie much more palatable-- another movie that missed an opportunity.
Laugh a lot during the movie thanks for the advanced screening
I thought this would be another one of "those movies" you know utterly predictable, poorly acted and "eye roll" funny. Turns out I throughly enjoyed the movie and it's humour. Laughed throughout the movie.
