Description
An adoring dad (Bryan Cranston) is horrified to discover that his adult daughter (Zoey Deutch) is dating a tech billionaire who's a tattooed, party-hearty lout (James Franco). Despite the boyfriend's heart of gold and generous (if inappropriate) gestures of affection, the father refuses to warm to him -- especially once he learns that he's planning to pop the question. Directed by John Hamburg. ~ Violet LeVoit, Rovi
