Woody Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged ex-wife (Laura Dern) to meet the teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he never knew he had. Based on Daniel Clowes’ iconic graphic novel of the same name, WILSON is a riotously funny look at life, love, family...and one man’s wildly ambitious search for happiness.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics 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.

Vulgar but funny, touching comedy is full of adult humor.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Wilson is an edgy dark comedy based on a graphic novel by Daniel Clowes. It centers on a character (played by Woody Harrelson) who's foul-mouthed, temperamental, and sometimes mean but also forever hopeful about the goodness of people and family. Language is the biggest issue; it's extreme and constant and includes every four-letter word imaginable. There's a knock-down fight scene between two sisters, as well as a few scenes of Wilson being beaten up in prison. He's smashed in the head with a metal tray, and wounds and bruises are shown. In addition to strong sexual innuendo, there's a non-graphic sex scene between Wilson and a woman, and he's later shown lying in bed with a different woman. A secondary character is said to be a recovering addict; some social drinking is shown, and drugs are mentioned.
