Bryan Cranston is the protective dad in Why Him? while James Franco plays the loaded Internet tycoon who’s dead set on marrying the wrong guy’s daughter, and Cranston’s not having any of it.

The new trailer shows James Franco out-James Franco-ing himself with a nightmare of a character. This dude has all the modesty of Franco’s role in The Interview plus zero filter when it comes to sharing intimate hot tub stories with his girlfriend’s family. Not even a back tattoo of the fam or a custom bowling alley for the father can win over a dad who really wants to bring the boyfriend down.

If nothing else, watch for the fake vintage L.L. Bean-style dad photos of Bryan Cranston.

Why Him? hits theaters Dec. 25, 2016. Watch the trailer above.
