Why Him? movie review

Why_Him.png

The most unlikely comedy duo that I thought I would never seen is James Franco and Bryan Cranston… Lo and behold, we got it! Why Him? follows Ned Fleming (Cranston) and his family when they go to visit his eldest daughter away at college (Zoey Deutch) for the holidays. However, things don’t go as planned when they stay with her eccentric millionaire boyfriend (Franco). Surprisingly this movie was not very well received by critics, saying that the jokes didn’t hit and it seemed rather phoned in. However, I  disagree completely! I am a sucker for Franco, Cranston, and comedy’s in general so this is like a wet dream of movies to me! The screen time that these two spent together was always top notch and although it is an age old premise, the modern day spin on it of him making video games and being loaded is great. This movie also has three performances that I feel NEED to be mentioned! Megan Mullally, who plays Ned’s wife was a funny touch to this and fits in well. Keegan Michael Key played James Franco’s estate manager thing and killed it, just like everything he is in. Best of all though is Kaley Cuoco playing the AI Justine! It’s weird but weirdly works… So, fuck what most people say, I LOVED this movie!

Get a Job movie review

Get_a_Job_Poster

I don’t understand how a movie with so many amazing actors can be so terrible and unforgettable… Get a Job follows five twenty year olds right after college, and the main guys dad (Bryan Cranston) as he tries to find a job after being laid off… I think it is about time we stop holding Bryan Cranston up on a pedestal. He keeps being in bad shit! Miles Tellers career is in and off, but you can’t be in something like Whiplash and return to this. All the other actors are good but I forgot who they are. I even forgot Anna Kendrick was in this till I saw that poster!.. Nothing ever seems to go right in this movie. The jokes don’t stick, the characters don’t seem real, everyone over acts, and even though its barely over an hour it drags on forever… This movie tries to be a giant slap in the face to millennials. That is really all it tries to do. Throughout the whole movie it talks about how that generation is awarded for everything, and babied, and never works. Miles Teller shows up for work in a t-shirt. They all smoke weed. They ask for money… It’s not a bad concept, just shittily executed and the ENTIRE audience is millennials.
