Over the holidays, Ned (Bryan Cranston), an overprotective but loving dad and his family visit his daughter at Stanford, where he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how awkward things are going to get, but now you can get an idea with the second red-band trailer for WHY HIM?!

When the first trailer hit back in June, I thought it felt pretty tame in what I've come to expect from an R-rated venture. I'm happy to say that this trailer assuages most of my fears in that this actually looks like a pretty fun movie! Sure, we all know the endgame, but James Franco and Bryan Cranston bouncing off of each other in a rated R movie is a little hard to mess up. If the story keeps the jokes coming as often as this trailer, I think we're in for a fun, holiday treat!

WHY HIM? will open in theaters on December 23, 2016.

James is 38 in real life. Zoey is 22 in real life. So it does seem weird that a university girl who's never had a boyfriend is all into him. And that she wants to marry him. I can see him wanting to marry HER. He's a billionaire. He's found a cutie who's 16 years younger than him. So, it could happen. Look at who Henry Cavill dates. Or who Donald Trump married. But, it does feel a bit off that nobody acknowledges the age difference. James is trying really hard to seem like a university-age

But, it does feel a bit off that nobody acknowledges the age difference. James is trying really hard to seem like a university-age dude. But it's a strain. Even Zak Efron acting like a frat boy is a bit of a strain. James should have more in common with Bryan. Still, I play to marry Zoey. So, I'm happy to go along with the story!

The problem with Meet the Parents - which this movie seems to repeat - is that it pits father vs. boyfriend but doesn't give much of a personality to the woman in the middle of it all. This film is very likely to end with Cranston and Franco making peace and yet, based on this trailer, it's hard to believe what made Zoey Deutch's character fall for Franco's in the first place.
