A Christmas cringe fest.

Why Him?
 tells the story of a holiday gathering threatens to go off the rails when Ned Fleming realises that his daughter’s Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend is about to pop the question.

What a waste of time. Christmas movies recently haven’t been worth it. Long gone are the films like Love Actually or The Holiday where even though they weren’t the greatest films ever, they were enjoyable and sweet Christmas films you could give a giggle at that had a decent cast as well. Why Him is just plain vulgar and the use of profanity is excessive. It was unfunny and pathetic.

I honestly can’t remember a time where I cringed so much.

Oh wait.

Do you mean, this entire movie season?

Way too often do the jokes feel forced and exaggerated, not to mention James Franco comes off as a creep the entire time. The film in itself is childish. The humour of the film could only be greeted with a disgusted silence

Don’t be lured in by the names of the film or the fact that two members of Kiss make a cameo. If you saw the trailer, you’ve seen the film. Please save yourselves from another waste of time on the big screens.

Film-O-Meter: 1/10.
