Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her.Written by

Several scenes were filmed at the Ramsey County Correctional Facility in St. Paul, Minnesota, which is a working correctional facility. While filming in the jail, Woody Harrelson asked for the air conditioning to be turned off. This request was denied due to the inconvenience that it would place on the officers, staff, and inmates of the facility. See more »
We all want people to love us for exactly who we are but that's not really possible in this world because we're just all too unbearable. You know, we gotta make the best of what we have.

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!
