TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Woody Harrelson delivers a solid performance as Wilson's titular grump, but the movie surrounding him can't quite manage to make the character's sour outlook consistently relatable.

Movie Info

Woody Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her.

A few good cameos from David Warshofsky, as a prickly old friend of Wilson's, and Margo Martindale, as a date gone wrong, grace the torpid landscape. But it should all be sharper and funnier than it is.

The plot opts for cop-out sentimentality and begins to melt into goo.

Woody Harrelson is the only life in this party, a misstep that gives Daniel Clowes' graphic novel the indie-cutesy treatment.

You'll want to spend time with "Wilson." Even if nobody else does.

Perhaps I've seen one too many movies in which men who need to grow up have to wreak havoc on other people's lives to do it. And this is that one too many.

Like Wilson himself, the movie is a bit of a throwback, out-of-step with the times, but whimsical in its execution.
