Notes: 
Storyline Heading
A lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This dark comedy is a big starring showcase for Woody Harrelson, with his more prominent co-stars such as Laura Dern and Judy Greer having smaller supporting roles. Constant language and general adult subject matter make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average ...this hard slap at the perceived stupidity of the world by a disenfranchised citizen pitches its black humor in appallingly funny if occasionally poignant episodes as we get to know the title character's Minnesota-based urban milieu. That is, before the plot opts for cop-out sentimentality and begins to melt into goo.

NY Post Full Review
Above Average "Wilson” doesn't have the emotional heft, or the narrative arc, of Johnson's last film, but it does remind you how much fun it is to watch Harrelson. In real life, Wilson would just be a straight-up a - - hole.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average For a brief moment, Wilson the movie becomes the serio-comic tightrope walk that Clowes intended. Missed opportunities hobble the film as a whole, but Harrelson is in there pitching his best game. That alone is a sight to see.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average Craig Johnson's film lurches from poignant melancholy to cartoonish slapstick, unable to settle on a consistent tone.
