Wil­son (Woody Har­rel­son) lives proudly on the fringes of mod­ern life, an old­school cur­mud­geon who can’t be­lieve peo­ple can be so dumb as to be glued to their smart­phones 24/7. Though he of­ten means well, Wil­son’s de­fault con­ver­sa­tional set­ting is no fil­ter, no apolo­gies. The world’s de­fault re­sponse is to run for the near­est door. The film­mak­ers have mis­judged just how funny this free­think­ing, freaked­out fel­low can be for more than a few min­utes at a time. To his credit, Har­rel­son al­most gets you think­ing oth­er­wise on the odd oc­ca­sion. Based on the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes (Ghost World).
