Broadsheet Trailer Park: Why Him?


Why Him

What you may need to know:

1. An overprotective father (Bryan Cranston) visits his daughter (Zoey Deutch) and meets her new Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend (James Franco).

Meet the Little Fockers meets Cuckoo..

Great… James Franco. Said no one ever.

4. Yeah. I’m not digging this.

5. It could be the way the trailer’s been cut, but this looks like a comedy without jokes.

6. Cranston is playing a giant floating bald head in next year’s Power Rangers movie. Good grief.

7. Broadsheet prognosis: Why indeed.

Release Date: January 8, 2017.

      Meet Mark. He likes to review trailers although I suspect his opinions are entitled based on the imdb listing.

    James Franco
    I would

    And I’m going ta’ watch it
    And review it
    Just to remind you that Hollywood rarely produces product with just you in mind

    BTW if Cranston is all that he can do comedy

        and let’s face it, he’s also Dr Tim Whatley, who converted to Judaism for the jokes.

          Yeah Cranston’s comedy sensibilities are what made him famous in the first place.
          The Breaking Bad move was the dangerous one for his typecast, although I do remember his x files episode quite fondly too

      2. Frilly Keane

        Yeah I know
        So why would anyone say he should stick to serious stuff

        I liked him in Godzilla

          Also – If you’ve not seen it, Trumbo is well worth a look and I’m planning on watching that Lyndon B Johnson movie this weekend, really looking forward to that.

            Much like Day Lewis’s Lincoln, you spend first hour of the LBJ movie saying what a great likeness.

    These film reviews are awful. Actually critic something for what it merit for once instead of bottom hole lines like “no one ever said” while referring to Franco. He’s been in loads of good films.

      1. ,Anomanomanom

        For just laughs two good examples are Pineapple express and This is the end. Not Oscar worthy films but both are funny. Also Cranston is a brilliant at comedy. Hal is far superior to Walter. Although I love both characters.

    3. Great… James Franco. Said no one ever.

    Speak for yourself ya dzzzzzope. He’s totally a li’l wet ting, super-ride, handsome swine. LOVE him.

        You have the brother then, I’ll take James. I’m prepared to risk STIs for a piece of that action

            If I followed that, I’d never get anything done. Except myself. BOOM

  4. Clampers Outside!

    I’m painting a wall white the night it’s released, and watching it dry for the week after that. Oh, and I’ll be washing my hair. I’m just too busy to watch it. Damn, oh well.

    I’m pretty sure Bryan Cranston was in the original power rangers tv show, which may explain why he is in the upcoming PR movie.

    Hmmm, if only there was some way I could check that…. oh well. Bye!

    I don’t care about some nobody blogger’s opinion on a trailer. Either post the trailer without comment and let people discuss it in the comments section, or stop posting trailers. These posts are completely worthless.
