Why Him? (2016) – Movie Review
Movie Review –
OH wow! That’s probably the best way, to sum up, my first response when the film “Why Him? (2016)” started. Within the first 2 to 3 minutes the entire audience was in tears laughing so hard. We literally almost fell out of our seat as the people in the seats beside us spit popcorn everywhere; this film is extremely funny.
When the trailer popped out for the movie Why Him? (2016), my first thoughts were; another “Meet the Parents”, but it wasn’t. Hollywood did regurgitate a ton of redone items in this movie but the film was hilarious. The cast used in this film were completely perfect (other than KISS), it’s a laughter ride from the moment the films starts until the last few minutes of the movie, then it sort of went numb, but we will let that part slide. Why Him? (2016) is an excellent film, a great comedy; don’t let the crap reviews ruin a good night out at the theater.
