Why Him? Movie Reviews

  • Funny

  • Crazy, silly, fun movie!!

    Faux Anonymity
    I don't know why this movie has so many bad reviews. It was very entertaining, especially the interaction between James Franco & Bryan Cranston. And the beautiful scenery of the San Francisco Bay Area. It's a movie you just gotta roll with & take it for what it is. If you can do that, it's a fun ride !! 👍👍👍
  • Immediate Regret

    This movie was horrible. The jokes were awful and mostly consisted of over the top crude humor. Please don't waste your money on this movie.
  • Not as bad as reviews 👌

    If you watch this knowing that it's silly- stupid funny then you won't be dissing it. I had a number of lol's because it is so 😜 silly. It's what it is- mindless entertainment and best watched with friends who have a sense of foolish humor. I'd recommend it for that. The swearing is a lot, but it's because it's outlandish. A ton of cameos in this flick. 🙈👀
  • Really Really Bad Movie

    Worst movie I've ever seen! I don't mind the occasional joke or two but this is just down right awful. It's comedy at its worst. I don't know what our culture is coming to but this isn't funny. I'm going to be really careful what I watch moving forward. Nothing redeeming about this movie.
  • Less F-bombs

    Needs fewer Fbombs and more actual jokes to make you laugh. It got old after a while and really if I'm watching something thats claiming to be a comedy....I wanna laugh more than twice. James Franco is HOT tho
  • The "F" word is used in every sentence

    Too much reference to sex and the "F" word.
  • Cookie Cutter Snoozer

    Feel like I just watched an Adam Sandler remake that wasn't as good as the original. This would be a decent movie if you were on a long flight overseas and just realized you found one extra movie on your iPhone you haven't watched yet. It's a mildly entertaining time killer, but nothing more than that. So don't get your hopes up. Enjoy your flight.
  • Boring

    Gratuitous vulgarity isn't funny. Waste of rental fee.
  • Couldn't even finish it.
