WHY HIM?

A holiday gathering threatens to go off the rails when Ned Fleming realizes that his daughter's Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend is about to pop the question. —IMDB

A Meet the Parents for the 21st century. It was ok. Some funny moments. If you don’t like extremely coarse language and highly explicit sexual references, give this one a miss. The problem with this movie is that the whole thing is aiming to be outrageous for the sake of being outrageous. This means that there is very little depth or purpose to it — just as much shock value it can muster. And, of course, that wears off after awhile. It’s quite cliched and formulaic. It’s a shame, because there are some very good actors — James Franco (127 Hours), Bian Cranston (Breaking Bad), and Zoey Deutch (Vampire Academy). The script they are working with doesn’t match the quality of these actors. A disappointment.
