Like Daniel Clowes' earlier Ghost World, this adaptation of his 2010 graphic novel is filled with vulgar, adult humor -- but it's also extremely funny, truthful, and touching.

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.

Wilson should be an insufferable companion. But Harrelson...finds a way to make us laugh at his character's closed loop of yearning/striving/failing, even as we ache for him.

More often than not, it's decidedly bracing-for better or worse.

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

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

March 23, 2017
A fractured, heartsick, funny adventure in mundane misery.
March 23, 2017
Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern and Judy Greer are the lifeblood that give this twisted, satirical curio its curb appeal and why, if you watch it, you'll see it through.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
March 23, 2017
Glaringly uneven, but when Woody Harrelson is in such commanding form, you're willing to forgive, forget, and just enjoy being in his presence.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 23, 2017
The film's real anchor is Wilson's newfound sense of cosmic un-purpose - the realization that there really may be no place in this cruel world for someone upholding principles no one else shares.

March 23, 2017
Johnson, who made the similarly harsh-yet-humorous "The Skeleton Twins," has the good sense to know that with the right actor in the right role, directing is sometimes as straightforward as pointing the camera and getting out of the way.

Should you see Wilson? I don't know. How bored are you?
March 23, 2017
The dark humor is consistent and funny if you're into this vein, but the episodic nature of the story makes the viewing experience uneven, particularly a funny but out-of-character turn towards the end.

It's not the classic it seems like it could have been, but it's definitely worth seeing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

I didn't want to hug it. But I can give it a nice pat on the back.

"Wilson" isn't a bad film, but it could have used less melodrama and a lot more insight.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 23, 2017
In the end, it's hard not to feel for Wilson as Harrelson plays him.
March 23, 2017
As an agreeable neurotic, Harrelson once again demonstrates why he can play psychos and serial killers in a sympathetic way that makes us feel we're in buddy-buddy good company.

March 22, 2017
A rare comic-book movie that improves on its graphic-novel original, Wilson has been expanded and humanized by its original author, Daniel Clowes.
March 22, 2017
The nicest surprise in Wilson is juvie actress Isabella Amara as Claire, the missing piece of the emotional puzzle Wilson constructs for himself.
