Over the holidays, Ned, an overprotective but loving dad, and his family visit his daughter at Stanford, where he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). 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 learns that Laird is about to pop the question.
A dad forms a bitter rivalry with his daughter’s young rich boyfriend.
