Reviews
Based on a Graphic Novel...
The title above says it all. The idea for this film is drawn from a superficial graphic novel, and, predictably, the result is a superficial film. One of the bonus segments of the DVD of "Wilson" is entitled "From Strip to Film" and the filmmakers inform us that their goal was to be true to the original version. In other words, the "graphic novel" was being treated as a literary masterpiece.

Woody Harrelson stars as the eponymous title character who, according to the graphic novel, can "say what he is thinking all the time." But one of the problems with the film is that the Wilson character has some truly bizarre thinking, resulting in awkward and offensive moments with others. His sociopathic thought process also leads him into troubling predicaments.

The most disturbing part of the narrative is when Wilson learns from his ex-wife Pippi that she delivered his child, a little girl whom she gave up for adoption. Wilson and Pippi then begin to stalk the child who is by now a high school student. Eventually Wilson is arrested on charges of kidnapping and child endangerment and spends a considerable time (i.e., years) in prison.

Curiously, Pippi, who participated with her ex-husband in the illegal contact with the daughter is neither arrested nor charged for any crime. As interpreted by actress Laura Dern, Pippi displays no evidence of concern or love for her daughter. While Wilson is in prison, Pippi decides to run off to Australia with her sponsor from her 12-step program.

In the bonus segment of the DVD, one of the performers referred to the film as "a coming of age story of a middle-aged man." Wow! At the bedside of his dying father, Wilson called his dad "a toxic, soul-draining vampire." Those words were likely the projection of the sad inner life onto Wilson himself. There is nothing redeeming about Wilson's character, and, by the end, nothing to suggest that he has "come of age."

Why?
For such a talented cast I cannot for the life of me explain why they bothered to be in this movie. While parts of the Twin Cities are recognizable; it's one of the worst movies I have seen in some time. The story or lack of it is depressing, uninspired, ridiculous and all over the place. The writing is terrible. One of the other reviewers said it best: it would have been better if it had been about Wilson the volleyball from the movie Cast Away. The Twin Cities certainly deserves a better representation of our beautiful state than this movie.

omg, this was hilarious!
This movie had me laughing so much I'm gonna have to watch it again because I missed some of the dialog due to not being able to stop laughing. There is a lot of foul language because Woody's character has no filter, and that's part of the humor. Unlike most movies made these days, there's a purpose and method to the language. It's not just foul language for the sake of foul language. Having said that, it's probably best to watch alone, or with someone you know is not sensitive to foul language. Woody does an excellent job with his character, although I get the feeling it wasn't much of a stretch for him. This may be the best I've seen from Woody. Excellent movie!

The man who'd lost everything, is set to redefine his life.
From the director of 'The Skeleton Key', I can see his style of filmmaking as I'd watched these two films of him. That makes him a stylish filmmaker of his own style. This kind of story narration is not for everyone. But surely there are people for it. This is not a very good film, but simply a good film.

It revolved around a character who is kind of an anti-social. He has lost everything one by one in his life and now his close buddy who moved far away and then his father who has just died. So he decides to find his ex wife, and with that he comes to know some long hidden secret. Going after it, his life forever changes which is what covered in the remaining film.

It was Woody Harrelson's show. But I quite liked Laura Dern as well. It was a long time after seeing her in this kind of absorbing role, yeah, except recently from 'Wild'. And there was Judy Greer, who was not bad either. So the casting was fantastic and the story was a lot better than you could judge it from its poster.

Not an unusual storyline, but well adapted from the graphic novel of the same name. You might get impressed by it, so I say try it, despite low ratings. Anyway, I had a nice time with it. A sweet and short film, which's mostly out of real world logics. But serves its purpose, that's entertaining its audience.

7/10

It May Have Been a Good Graphic Novel
This is a story about how Woody Harrelson is a jerk, but everyone else is too, and they punch him. This is supposed to elicit sympathy from the audience. When his father dies, he reaches out to ex-wife Laura Dern, because hey, you know, sympathy sex. He discovers that when she had left him, had an abortion and gone into a drug-fueled spiral, she hadn't had an abortion, but had given out the kid for adoption. They track her down, stalk her a bit in a non-threatening manner, and deal with people being jerks and punching Woody Harrelson. Eventually, Dern moves to Australia, Harrelson shacks up with a young, beautiful woman and things turn out well for him, despite the fact that he is still a jerk -- he just doesn't punch anyone. By the standards of this particular Cinematic Universe, this makes him a Good Person who Deserves All Good Things and gets them.

In short, this is a bad movie with good performances. There are quirky individuals and snide commentary about how people are jerks, but nothing changes, and you are left with numerous questions about what is going on. How does Wilson live? Why can he take off to go stalk various relatives without worrying about money? Aren't there any adults anywhere? If it weren't for Harrelson's straightforward, oblivious idiocy, this would be unwatchable.

"I always wondered why I was like this. Now I know."
"Why do people live in the suburbs...It's like living death." As expected Woody Harrelson puts in another good performance. The overall story and script is, for the majority of the picture, honed very well and provides an abundance of memorable lines and nice moments. The whole concept of the film/book and the protagonist's tribulations are good entertainment value. There are some nice observations of modern life and the few remaining individuals who refuse to fall victim to it,and/or jump in with the crowd.

"This is my house." "How can you tell?" However, this film goes quite swimmingly until the bleak final quarter. The humour and observations turn sour, and perhaps this is realistic. The world we are presented with in the second half is bitterly cold and populated with brutal individualistic yet conformist aimless souls. After having been presented with the horrible ex, the daughter, as well as the sadistic ex's sister, the final quarter shows the formerly irrepressible Wilson succumbing to the mundanity of modern life as he settles in with his new modern girlfriend.

"Was I wrong?" By the end of the film, his stubbornness to remain himself is replaced with the realisation that it doesn't help to be right (or for that matter free, or himself) and indeed it's probably worse. This character portrait is colourful and entertaining, but the the fun is suddenly deflated and it brings the viewer shuddering down into reality as Wilson is forced to accept the drab existence, the technology, and the pointlessness of modern life.

"Insert ass rape joke here." The tragic ending of Wilson using skype, or indeed even considering moving to Portland.

Harrelson has a field day
Wilson (2017) *** Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern, Isabella Amara, Cheryl Hines, Judy Greer, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Margo Martindale. Harrelson has a field day as a well-intentioned misanthropic man who attempts to rekindle a romance with his ex (Dern) and learning that they have a daughter who he wants very much to be reunited with in spite of his non-filter spillage of whatever's on his mind much to his detriment. Based on Daniel Clowe's graphic novel the film attempts to make such an unpleasant sort, sort of pleasant thanks largely to the wait-and-see-how-this-goes direction by Craig Johnson in allowing the characters to show themselves for who they are, warts and all. Frequently funny and surprisingly tender at times the well-meaning protagonist scores albeit with a prickly defense mechanism that indeed can be grating.

A great surprise. Which should make you think.
Before i decided to watch this movie i read some IMDb reviews. It was a mixed bunch and i wanted to see it because i believed in the positive ones. Now that i have seen it, i can say they were totally right.

Wilson is the story of an ordinary man who doesn't really want to take part in our modern society, mainly because of technology taking away social interactions. The movie does well in showing us the perverted lifestyle we developed because of technologies and capitalism. It made me think about these topics a lot and even affected me personally.I shed quiet a lot of tears, i was cought off guard by the movie and that is something i do not experience a lot.

I would not describe this movie as a pure comedy, for me it is like 60% Drama and 40% comedy. In my opinion Wilson deserves a way higher rating.

Everything but funny
The definition of a comedy is: a (type of) film, play, or book that is intentionally funny either in its characters or its action. So that be said, I would think Wilson has to make me laugh at least once, or if not a true laugh at least a smile. Well guess what, none of the above occurred. And that's not because I have no sense of humor, not at all, I can pretend I have a pretty good sense of humor. But Wilson is just not funny, not even slightly. If I had to live with somebody like Wilson I would probably beat him up and end in prison. That's how annoying that character is. Extremely annoying but absolutely not funny. The acting is okay though. If they asked Woody Harrelson to play an extremely annoying person then he managed it very well. The story is long and boring, you just wait for the movie to finish, as quick as possible. Will I ever watch this movie again? If I have problems falling asleep maybe.

A little too unbalanced to highly recommend it, but it is relatable (to me).
'WILSON': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

A comedy-drama, based on the 2010 graphic novel (of the same name) by Daniel Clowes (who also wrote the screenplay). The film was directed by Craig Johnson, who also helmed the 2014 indie hit 'THE SKELETON TWINS', and it stars Woody Harrelson (in the title role). The movie tells the story of a lonely, neurotic and extremely honest middle-aged man, named Wilson, who goes looking for his teenage daughter, after just discovering he had one. Laura Dern, Judy Greer and Isabella Amara also costar in the movie. It's received a limited indie theatrical release at the Box Office, and it's gotten mostly mediocre reviews from critics. I also found the film to be far from perfect, but it's also at least somewhat entertaining and insightful.

Wilson (Harrelson) is a lonely middle-aged man, who's lived alone most of his life. He's neurotic, and he's also uncomfortably open, and honest, with almost everyone he meets; which causes most people to distance themselves from him. Wilson was briefly married, to another mentally unstable, and now drug addicted, woman named Pippi (Dern). Pippi and Wilson conceived a child together, years earlier, but Wilson was told the baby was aborted. When he finds out the child was born, and she's now living with adoptive parents nearby, he feels the obsessive need to meet her (Amara).

I've never read the graphic novel that the film is based on, but I did enjoy the quirky 2001 cult classic 'GHOST WORLD'; which Clowes also wrote the screenplay to (and the comic book it was based on). I do really like the Wilson character though, and I can really relate to him in many ways (but definitely not in every way). I think Harrelson does an outstanding job portraying him too, and the movie is quite involving because of it. It's a little too unbalanced though, to highly recommend it; it's just way too dark at times, in comparison to it's otherwise upbeat nature.
