A rivalry develops and Ned's panic level goes through the roof when he finds himself lost in this glamorous high-tech world and learns Laird is about to pop the question.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It all works in theory. But the execution's off.
Fresh: Not as wild as intended, but reasonably diverting just the same.
Rotten: "Why Him?" rarely delivers more than a half-chuckle. Right now, everyone involved might be thinking, "Why me?"
Rotten: I'm not going to lie. I laughed - just not as frequently or as hard as I would have liked to.
Good actors, good story but it just doesn't work.
waste of time
Could have been funnier and many parts were dirty just for the sake of being dirty. Sometimes you have to go beyond a sex joke and actually have some humor...
Confused vulgarity with comedy
Could have been funny, has a few moments, but more often confuses shocking vulgarity with comedy.
