Woody Harrelson is usually delightful in comic roles, but he’s trying too hard in this one. It’s based on a graphic novel that I didn’t read, but someone who has, told me that his movie character is pretty much like it reads. This makes him an optimistic, neurotic and often inappropriate man who wants to make his misguided life better. This includes re-uniting with his ex (Laura Dern) and the teenage daughter who was given up for adoption (Isabella Amara). His encounters (which feature plenty of his rambling social commentary) are seldom amusing, much less funny and the character isn’t especially sympathetic or comical. The film wanted to be quirky, but it lacked the writing or direction to make it work.

 

2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)
