(2016) (Bryan Cranston, James Franco) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: A reserved printing company owner isn't pleased to learn his 22-year-old daughter is dating an older Silicon valley billionaire or that they'll be spending the holidays with him.
- Ned Fleming (BRYAN CRANSTON) is a reserved family man who lives in a nice house outside Detroit with his wife, Barb (MEGAN MULLALLY), and 15-year-old son, Scotty (GRIFFIN GLUCK). He runs a printing company with a loyal staff, including his right-hand man, Lou (CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER), but they've seen better days and the firm is currently deep in debt, something Ned has yet to tell Barb. But that's moved to the back burner when he learns that his 22-year-old daughter, Stephanie (ZOEY DEUTCH), who's attending Stanford, has been dating Silicon Valley billionaire Laird Mayhew (JAMES FRANCO) and has been keeping that secret for a while.
To make matters worse, they're going to spend the holidays with Laird at his mansion where his employees work developing video game apps and Laird's personal assistant, Gustav (KEEGAN-MICHAEL KEY), tries to teach him martial arts to defend himself from any future abduction attempt.
Laird, who's ten years older than Stephanie, is a nice guy and goes out of his way to impress her family, but his lack of a filter, potty mouth and overall lifestyle and behavior don't sit well with Ned. From that point on, and as wife and son fall under the man's charming spell, Ned does what he can to put an end to his daughter's relationship before it's too late.
