Keegan-Michael Key was by far the funniest part of the movie. While the relationship between James Franco's character and Bryan Cranston's character drove the plot (an original and amusing plot at that), the movie fell short with being a little too one dimensional with it's humor. It seemed as though every joke had a punchline that was far too similar to every other joke told, so by the end of the film there wasn't much more to laugh at. Even amidst all that, the premise itself is amusing and the actors all give fairly good comedic performances despite a one-layered script.

I didn't see the movie last Christmas because I was busy with other holiday movies, but found time to see the movie on television. The movie was written as a R rated sitcom inwhich a couple played by Bryon Cranston and Megan Mullally who visit her daughter whose boyfriend played by James Franco who looks like a porn actor. Zoey Deutch is the only sane person in the movie. Going though the moments over the holidays is nothing new. I didn't get anything out of this movie except toliet humor and unfunny adult humor. Bryon Cranston and James Fraco has gotten Oscar nomination, those Oscar nomination isn't a ticket to being in bad movies. That movie has went up against better movies like "La La Land," "Fences," and "Sing." I bet people will pick "why Him?" over the other three, they probably has a rotten time at the movies.
