Come on down to the lawn tonight for this hilarious comedy from the writer of Zoolander and Meet the Parents!


Over the holidays, Ned (Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad), an overprotective but loving dad, and his family visit his daughter at Stanford. There he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco, The Interview, This is the End). 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.


Co-starring four-time Golden Globe nominee Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), up-and-comer Zoey Deutch (Everybody Wants Some!!, Dirty Grandpa) and Adam Devine (Modern Family, Workaholics).
