Warning: The preview is definitely NSFW.
This movie was released yesterday and had a production budget of $38 million. The movie’s premise:
“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.”
The movie has a 4.9 out of 10 rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Bound to be another Hollyweird failure, no doubt.
Why avoid this movie? It stars some rabid proggies.
Bryan Cranston promised to move out of the U.S. if Trump was elected. And like every other celebrity who made the same promise, he is still living in the U.S. I reported on this in November:
“But Bryan Cranston could be saying farewell to the United States after the election results are announced. The 60-year-old actor has warned he will move to Canada if Donald Trump becomes the next president.
‘I would definitely move,’ he told The Bestseller Experiment podcast when asked what he would do if Trump was elected over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. ‘It’s not real to me that, that would happen. I hope to God it won’t,’ he added. ‘It wouldn’t be a vacation. I’d be an expatriate,’ Cranston added.”
Guess Cranston’s U.S. Hollyweird money is too tempting to give up under a President Trump.
The move also stars Megan Mullally (of Will & Grace fame) who despises Trump.
In early November, Megan reunited with her former co-stars to perform an original musical number at a Hillary Clinton campaign fundraiser. They performed the song at an event held at the home of HBO executive Michael Lombardo and his husband Sunny Ward, the Washington Blade reported. From the report:
“In one verse, the four actors sing that Trump has tiny hands. “And you know what they say about people who are billionaires with tiny hands, they’re usually misogynistic demagogues who should never be president,” McCormack says. “And they have small penises,” Messing adds.
“The infrastructure’s failing, our future’s looking bland, economy is trailing, the climate’s out of hand, our children are in crisis, our nation’s gone berserk, and poor Billy Bush is out of work,” the four sing. “Hey, Hillary Clinton we need you at last ’cause Donald Trump’s campaign is such a pain in the ass.”
Hey Megan, you backed a losing candidate. And looks like your foul-mouthed movie will be a loser, too.
