Why Him? - Ultra HD Blu-ray Ultra HD Review | High Def Digest
That is, if the argument that it could've been worse serves as a kind of back-handed praise for a story that simply runs its course expectedly and without fail. Setting the tone for the rest of the R-rated comedy, we meet our two would-be rivaling protagonists on separate occasions and the woman caught in the middle of their opposition.
Her father, Ned Fleming an equally game if also a bit more subdued and restrained Bryan Cranstonis a conservative and straightforward suburbanite CEO of a printing company. Before the two men meet face to face, Laird exposes more of himself than intended on a video conference chat with Steph during Ned's birthday.
In these few minutes, it's easy to predicate where this is going and exactly how these two are going to butt heads while also behaving like buttheads. Weirdly, there is something comforting about this familiarity and its predictability, almost as though screenwriters Ian Helfer and John Hamburg, the latter of which also serves as the film's director, were doing it deliberately. We know dad will have a problem with his daughter's paramour, his modern lifestyle, which is a mansion with a wildlife sanctuary and decorated with abstract art, and the young man's brazen, unbridled honesty.

But in the end, the two will discover they are more alike than they initially thought and learn to be accepting of one another. And for the most part, this is precisely what we are given in Why Him? However, the journey there is where the filmmakers manage to surprise audiences, layering this usual odd-couple tension with some cleverly timed gags and a great deal of heart hiding beneath the raunchiness. Much of the humor is the customary series of gross-outs and cringe-worthy dialogue that makes everyone uncomfortable, some of which are bad one-liners desperately begging for approval.
A bathroom poop joke here, a fall into a tank of moose urine there, and a boococky reference for good measure.

But those passing the smell test earn genuine laughs and are accepted into the family, making up for the production's more lackluster aspects. There's also something oddly refreshing about Hamburg's film, something about the filmmaker's storytelling style that reaches just beyond the surface without pretending to be more than what is, similar to what we've seen in his Zoolander and I Love You, Man. Rather than having the boyfriend put on an act to impress the parents, Laird bursts onto the screen as he truly is, which is sadly more a fault than to his advantage.
