Stephanie introduces her boyfriend Laird to her family, namely her
overprotective father Ned(Cranston). Who is dismayed at his daughter as
he tries to absorb the reality that Laird is a part of his life now.
Stephanie is so blinded by love that she seems to overlook her
boyfriends obnoxious behavior. There are some original jokes, Yet, this
feels like an R-rated version of "Meet the Parents". Which, in my
opinion is a better film in every way. Don't take my word for it, see
it for yourself and decide.
If you're going to remake a movie at least have the dignity to give it the same name. What's peculiar is, it's made by the same people that created "Meet the Parents". Which leads me to wonder, What were the writers thinking? More importantly, What was the studio that approved this film thinking? I'm usually open minded when it comes to comedies, even if it's raunchy. However that doesn't mean that I will overlook using recycled material and calling it a new brand.
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). The 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.
