Film of the day: Why Him?

Why Him?

Bryan Cranston stars as Ned Fleming, the proud owner of a mom-and-pop printing company hit with a curveball just before Christmas.

Daddy’s little girl Stephanie (Zoey Deutch) has found herself a boyfriend, and she wants the whole family – including mum Barb (Megan Mullally) and impressionable teenage brother Scotty (Griffin Gluck) – to come and meet him over the holidays. What could possibly go wrong? Plenty is the answer, as her beau is none other than Laird Mayhew (James Franco) – a foul-mouthed and frequently shirtless internet millionaire with some pretty serious boundary issues.

Raucous festive comedy from I Love You, Man director John Hamburg.

Why Him? From Friday 20 October on Sky Cinema Premiere and Sky on Demand.
