A new clip from the forthcoming comedy Why Him?, which stars James Franco and Bryan Cranston, has hit the web. The film opens in the US on December 23rd, and the UK a few days later on the 26th.

Here’s the plot.

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 straight-laced Ned thinks Laird, who has absolutely no filter, is a wildly inappropriate match for his daughter. The one-sided rivalry—and Ned’s panic level—escalate when he finds himself increasingly out of step in the glamorous high-tech hub, and learns that Laird is about to pop the question.

Watch the new clip below.
