The week before Christmas usually means we get a flurry of flicks hitting the big screen. That's the case this year as well, as studios are filling theaters with new options for movie-goers during the holiday season. This time around we have Why Him?, Passengers, Assassin's Creed and Sing. It's gonna be a Rotten Week!

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

Rotten Watch Prediction

Ah, to be a YouTube star. That collection of dudes/ dudettes who hopped on to a growing trend early on and were able to turn some iPhone screen time into a multi-million dollar career. I'm not poo-pooing it by any means. My kid loves Nerdy Nummies as much as the next person. Though I can see the generational differences that would creep up if my daughter was about to marry a Jake Paul-type who just happened to also be incredibly rich This is the general conceit of Why Him?, in which Bryan Cranston's modern sensibilities are thrown all the hell off with James Franco's crazy man tendencies through the courting of the former's daughter.

Writer/director John Hamburg (I Love You, Man - 84%) said he wanted to upend the power struggle of a film like Meet the Parents, where the dad holds all of the cards, and I commend him for the effort. But critics don't think he got there with early reviews trending on the negative side for Why Him? What a shame. A James Franco/Bryan Cranston pairing should get all the way there, but this one appears to fall short.
