Why Him? Trailer

Of all the guys his daughter could have chosen… Why Him? 20th Century Fox has debuted a trailer for the new comedy Why Him?, about a father dealing with the totally insane boy that his charming daughter has chosen to marry. Bryan Cranston stars as the father, and James Franco stars as the boy - a tattoo-covered "internet billionaire", with Zoey Deutch as his daughter. The full cast includes Megan Mullally, Keegan-Michael Key, Griffin Gluck, Andrew Rannells, Casey Wilson and Zack Pearlman. I get what they're going for with this, but some of the scenes in this are excruciatingly bad. That said, the battles between Cranson and Franco might be amusing. Give the red band trailer a whirl and tell us what you think.

Here's the first red band trailer for John Hamburg's comedy Why Him?, direct from Fox's YouTube:

And here's the alternate green band trailer for Why Him? from YouTube, for those who want to compare:

Why Him? Poster

Over the holidays, Ned (Bryan Cranston), an overprotective but loving dad and his family visit his daughter at Stanford, where 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 one-sided rivalry—and Ned’s panic level—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 directed by John Hamburg, of Safe Men, Along Came Polly and I Love You Man previously. The screenplay is by John Hamburg and Ian Helfer. 20th Century Fox will open Why Him? in theaters starting Christmas week, December 23rd, this year. Worth it?

Is it just me or is James Franco one of the few people who you feel becomes a character in movies he's in and it doesn't just feel like you're watching a James franco movie? Example, no offense to him, great actor but whenever I see Jason Statham in a movie it's like i'm just seeing Jason Statham in a movie, I'm not seeing a new character or anything.

I'm citing Poe's Law and leaving it at that.

Franco did it, he turned Cranston into himself. Terrible ...
