Feeling lonely and isolated, Wilson tracks down his ex-wife who left him 17 years earlier, only to meet his teenage daughter for the first time. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her.
The graphic novel's initial intention was to parody the Sunday funnies, which it executed with an impeccable wit and subtlety that cannot, no matter the cartoonishly exaggerated characters and original block font titles, be translated perfectly to film.
Wilson is a bitter, infuriating, and utterly unsympathetic character in Daniel Clowes' original graphic novel, but at some point [screenwriter Clowes] found a way to turn Wilson's vinegar back into wine.
A few good cameos from David Warshofsky, as a prickly old friend of Wilson's, and Margo Martindale, as a date gone wrong, grace the torpid landscape. But it should all be sharper and funnier than it is.
