The film is about brotherhood, family love, and robbery (straight face). It’s about two siblings; Chris Pine and Ben Foster (an ex-con and a divorced father) who are planning their biggest robbery but must first go through a lawman (Jeff Bridges) hell bent on foiling their plans.

In the whole movie, this is my favorite line… “The Bank loaned the least they could, just enough to keep your mama poor on a guaranteed return… and to see you boys pay them back with their own money? If that ain’t Texas, I sure don’t know what is”. This line best expresses what the whole movie was about. We find out that the smartest way to keep your tracks covered is by ensuring you invest in the same bank you stole from like getting a trust fund from them.
I tip Jeff Bridges for a nomination for his supporting role as a cop. He was a pain in the neck with his mean witty response to his partner on every scene during their chase of the criminals (Chris Pine and Ben Foster).  The last time I saw a calm threat (between Chris and Jeff) this good, was in Heat, Al Pacino, and R.Deniro. I particularly liked when he said “I rented a little house in town, if you want to stop by and finish this conversation, you are welcome. If you stop by maybe, I will give you peace”.
However, the climax and conclusion was kinda underwhelming and a tad bit clumsy. I was expecting the movie to end on a high note but I was left feeling deflated.  Anyways it was still a good watch and I rate it 7.0/10.

Ned frowns on Laird’s blithe attitude and panics when he learns of his intention to pop the question.

The fears of every father regarding his daughter are encapsulated in this movie. “Which kain guy my daughter go carry come house?” You see, fathers and daughters share a special bond and daddy must approve of the guy with whom she intends to settle down. When however, the guy is laid-back, foul mouthed and heavily tattooed, you best be sure that daddy is going to put up some stiff resistance.

The conflict of the movie borders on change and how people react to it. Ned is stuck in his old ways and is unwilling to adapt. However, it is easy to understand that people are comfortable with the status quo and fear any sort of change. As life is by its nature full of change however, you either adapt or go extinct. This kinda raises the question if new is always better?

I am of the old school and I am usually knocked for six when I see heavily tattooed guys carrying dreadlocks and throwing profanity all around. It’s really hard for me to understand these millennials with their lingo and carefree behavior, so I am sure that I would react just as Ned did. To that extent, the movie was relatable to me.

The movie does have some funny scenes and some rather not so funny scenes. The cast did a great job – my favorite being Bryan Cranston who never fails to impress me. James Franco was his usual cheeky self. There were also appearances by Cedric the Entertainer, Keegan-Michael Key and even a cameo from Tech Guru Elon Musk. Even Kaley Cuoco (of The Big Bang theory) makes an appearance (sort of).

 

Why Him?has some funny moments but is rather slow paced and not very compelling and earns 5.9/10 rating on my awesome-o-metre.
