Plot / Description

Of all the guys his daughter could have chosen… Why Him? See James Franco and Bryan Cranston, in theaters this Christmas. 
 
Over the holidays, Ned (Bryan Cranston), an overprotective but loving dad and his family visit his daughter at Stanford, where he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). A rivalry develops, and Ned's panic level goes through the roof when he finds himself lost in this glamorous high-tech world and learns that Laird is about to pop the question.

Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

From the moment she's born, a man's daughter is the center of his universe. You give her love, you give her encouragement. You watch her grow into a strong, confident woman. And then one day, you come face to face with the love of her life. 
The Flemings are in the house! Yes! 
Oh my God. 
Well, looks like he works out quite a bit.  
Steffie, get 'em up here! 
Please, please, please. 
I have a little surprise. Ta-da! 
Is that our Christmas card? 
It's all of you! 
It says Happy Holidays and everything. 
It says Happy Holidays? 
Yeah. 
Ah, I gave the guy the Christmas card, I didn't know he'd put Happy Holidays on there. I guess that's on me forever now. 
Turns out her boyfriend is this internet zillionaire.  
Laird has literally no filter, but he's a really good guy. 
Remember that night in the hot tub? Steph opened up like a flower. You should've seen it. 
I shouldn't have seen it, but now I feel like I have.  
No father would want their daughter with this guy. 
My instinct is to hug you right now. 
Good night. 
I don't know what is issues are. I feel like I'm so normal. 
I don't like bodyguards around, so I just had Gustav train me. 
He's as strange as they come. 
You're reaction time is getting quicker. What happened to the evasive parkour? 
On Christmas Day, I'm gonna ask Steffie to marry me, and I'd really like your blessing. Yeah? 
No. 
Just give me a couple days to win you over, by Christmas morning, you're gonna be calling me son, I'm gonna be calling you dad.  
Don't think that's gonna happen.  
I think it's gonna, dad. 
I know it won't. 
Dad, it will. 
Stop that. 
What, dad? 
That. That. Stop that. 
Dad, what are you talking about? 
Steph, you could be dating anyone. Why Laird? 
He makes me really happy.  
He is wrapping his tentacles around every member of this family. Because of his influence, your mother has lost her mind. 
It's called terping. 
This is not someone we want our daughter marrying. 
I am going to take this octopus down. 
You're not gonna say anything to Stephanie about the proposal, right? 
Is that a drone? 
Laird is spying on us.  
What? 
Do not mess with me! 
 
(Lyrics) I've got sunshine on a cloudy day 
My girl 
Talkin' 'bout my girl 
My girl 
Ooh 
 
(Lyrics) I can't I can't even lie 
Oh my, oh my, oh my God 
 
 
(Lyrics) Yes siree, 'Bob', I was thinking the same thang 
Been public enemy since you thought PE was gym 
We're gonna rock this house until we knock it down 
So turn the volume loud, cause it's mayhem 'til the A.M.
