Wilson

They don't launch average folks into space is because they'd just complain the whole time.

In fact, the squeaky wheel in this comedy wouldn't even make it past the interview.

Wilson (Woody Harrelson) is a misanthropic, middle-aged curmudgeon with a lack of social grace who spends the bulk of his day antagonizing passersby about their life choices.

When he learns he has a daughter he has never met, Wilson decides to track her (Isabella Amara) and her mother (Laura Dern) down for an impromptu reunion.

But things go awry when Wilson is imprisoned for kidnapping his offspring.

Based on the graphic novel by underground artist Daniel Clowes, Wilson's sardonic script was also adapted by its creator, with good and bad results. While Harrelson embodies the titular grump, Clowes' acerbic script insults viewers' intelligence while not proving it's any shrewder.

Moreover, people who confront strangers can probably recommend the best pepper-spray.
