Why Him: Comedy Starring Oscar nominees Bryan Cranston and James Franco

Directed and co-directed by John Hamburg, Why Him is a comedy starring Oscar nominees Brian Cranston and James Franco.

Set during the holidays, the tale centers on Ned (Bryan Cranston), an overprotective but loving dad and his family visit his daughter at Stanford.

While there, he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco).

The straight-laced Ned thinks Laird, who has absolutely no filter, is a wildly inappropriate match for his daughter.

The rivalry and Ned’s panic escalate when he finds himself increasingly out of step in the glamorous high-tech hub, and learns that Laird is about to pop the question.

Why Him is slated to be released on Christmas Day.
