A straight-laced, overprotective dad named Ned (Bryan Cranston) and his family travel on holiday to visit his daughter Stephanie (Zoey Deutch), who's studying at Stanford. There, Ned meets his worst nightmare: Stephanie's new socially awkward billionaire boyfriend Laird (James Franco), who is by far the opposite of Ned's envisioned perfect suitor.

Finding him wildly inappropriate for his daughter, Ned sees Laird as obnoxious, rich, and worst of all, tattooed. When Ned discovers that Laird is planning to propose to Stephanie, his panic and one-sided rivalry turns into a mission to stop the engagement before it happens.

  • 1 star "The actor should not working on this movie. He has talent. The movie was out of line. Nonsenses scenes. Lazy jokes and vulgar language."
  • 5 stars "It was very funny. Language was a little rough but I would see it again."
  • 1 star "James Franco is actually a brilliant man. He has a Ph D! He should pursue an academic career - and stay away from garbage films like this one!!"
