Could have been the best holiday for the whole family, Ned Fleming (Bryan Cranston) was served by an unexpected Christmas present by meeting his daughter's fiance, Laird Mayhew (James Franco), a young billionaire and owner of a multi-million company. The whole holiday season was transformed into a hilarious and challenging moment for all of them. A nerve-wracking Christmas treat, WHY HIM? opens in theaters February 1 from 20th Century Fox.
As Laird (Franco) tries to win his fiancee's parents, the Flemings were having double thoughts on their daughter's choice for a future husband. The comfort and fortune could win them but his uncontrollable demeanor might not be really appropriate to the family's orderly and cultured image. Plus, an almost-too-private habitat that is too high-tech for the Flemings would take them time to adjust.
As for a father-son-in-law relationship, you can predict that it will not be a very good one. But in the end, despite all the contradictions of "values" between both of them, you will learn how to accept people beyond what they barely show you. The almost-sexual moments between Bryan Cranston and Megan Mullaly can take you leap out of your seats. The special appearance of Kiss is surreal. They totally blended in with the other casts, the wonder of having old rock metal artists in family films.
