Funny

Despite what other people wrote I thought it was fun and hilarious. My daughter talked me into watching it...I was not disappointed ?

Netflix and chill

Ned Fleming (Bryan Cranston), Flanders already taken, works for a failing print company in Michigan. His daughter Stephanie (Zoey Deutch) is at Stanford and has asked the family to come out to California for Christmas to meet her boyfriend Laird, (James Franco) which she has kept mostly secret. Laird owns "Guerrilla Gang" an on line game company. He has money but is generally crude and obscene, lacking a filter. This sets up a cultural clash between dad and the man who wants to marry his daughter.

The situations were over-the-top. Kaley Cuoco was excellent as the cloud voice. While this was not as crude as many of Franco's films, he does show his hind parts. The film had it's funny moments. Cameos include: Richard Blais, Steve Aoki, Elon Musk, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, and Cedric the Entertainer (not as himself). Smile funny 3 1/2 stars.

Guide: F-word. Sex talk. Franco's butt.

Kiss the bride

The story is by Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller is one of the producers and this is an even more gross version of Meet the Parents but this time the proposed son in law is obnoxious.

Stephanie (Zoey Deutch) is studying at Stanford University and carrying on with her horny, heavily tattooed boyfriend who has sex on the brain. Laird (James Franco) is also a free thinking free wheeling internet tycoon and almost twice her age.

Rightly so her parents Ned (Bryan Cranston) and Barb (Megan Mullally) are shocked by him when they visit them for Christmas. Teenage brother Scotty (Griffin Gluck) is more impressed by the cursing and sexualised Laird who also imparts some business ideals on the wannabe entrepreneur.

Laird wants to marry Stephanie and asks Ned for his permission. Ned is rather taken aback who also has worries about the future of his printing company.

Very little comment is made in the film about Laird's age. A lot of comments are made that Ned was similar to Laird at his age which must had been less than 20 years ago as Laird is heading for 40!

I have to admit this is a rather misogynistic film, there is little attraction between Deutch and Franco and Stephanie is always telling Laird to tone it down a bit. The film is more miss than hit, it does have a few laughs and a predictable ending even down to a rock group cameo.
