Why Him? was really funny. The story and editing are about as stock as they come, bringing pretty much nothing new and/or special to the table, but they’re not the focus. The focus is on the comedy and giving the audience a good time, which I think it succeeds at (for the most part. There are a few painful scenes to sit through.) It’s one of those movies where you know literally every story beat from start to finish, but you likely won’t care because you’re having a good time. If it sounds like your jam, go see it, have a laugh and enjoy.
