Why Him? movie quotes bring the laughs to the romantic comedy about one family who travels for the holidays to meet their daughter's eccentric boyfriend. John Hamburg directed the film which he co-wrote with Ian Helfer. Why Him? opened theatrically in the United States on December 23, 2016.

In Why Him?, Stephanie (Zoey Deutch) invites her family to visit her for the holidays so they can meet her boyfriend. Despite her father Ned (Bryan Cranston) dealing with issues at his company, the family, including mother Barb (Megan Millally) and brother Scotty (Griffin Gluck), travel to meet this new squeeze.

But it doesn't take long after the family arrives to realize that Stephanie's boyfriend, billionaire Laird (James Franco) is vulgar and without any sort of filter. Things get worse for Ned when Laird confides in him that he plans to propose to Stephanie, something Ned declines to endorse. Thus begins a series of events of Laird trying to prove himself to Ned, and Ned trying to undermine Laird.

Why Him? movie quotes share some of the jokes from the film just like other movie quotes share lines from their respective movies including for Assassin's Creed, A Monster Calls, Passengers, and Sing.

    You Should Have Seen It

    Laird: Remember when we made love in the hot tub? I mean it was not sexual at all. Steph opened up like a flower. You should have seen it.
    Barb: I shouldn't have seen it but no I feel like I have. 

    Sitting around the dinner table in these Why Him? movie quotes, Laird explains one steamy night he shared with Stephanie involving a hot tub. Laird sees little wrong with telling this story but Stephanie's parents clearly disagree.

      Why Laird?

      Ned: You could be dating anyone. Why Laird? 
      Stephanie: He makes me really happy. 

      Ned tries his best to understand why Stephanie is with Laird when she could be dating much more socially appropriate men. But as Stephanie explains, you can't choose who you fall in love with.
