Why Him? Movie Reviews

  • Confused but amused

    The story didn't follow through and the ending was pointless. It was as if they filmed the whole movie on snapchat only pieces of information in 10 second clips. The actors are all great and it wasn't their acting that was problematic just the direction.
  • Waste of money and time!

    For those that like raunchy comedy, this is for you. It's the perfect melding of American Pie and Van Wilder.

    I get that it's an R-rated comedy but it seemed like it tried too hard to be way over the top.

    I love James Franco so I automatically have ( 3 Stars ) locked and loaded! I will admit that this isn't the most humorous movie of his that I've seen but it is pretty dad gum funny.
  • Just bad

    Wasn't able to feel the chemistry between James and the girl but the movie itself is funny. Lots of cameos too! Watch out for Jonah Hill and Steve Aoki!
  • Unwatchable

    I watched 45 minutes and gave up and started watching the Weather Channel. Now that Cranston is now a big Hollywood star he can make horrid movies like the rest of them. So glad I rented instead of purchasing.
