Packing profound humor and heart with sucker punch delivery, "Hesher" succeeds at the impossible; it makes Joseph Gordon-Levitt unlikable, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

I expected Hesher to be some type of badass who was going to protect the kid from bullies but he seemed to bully the kid himself.I thought maybe he'd help the dad & his son get over their loss & they'd help him in someway but Hesher squatted in the family home & really did nothing but cause havoc.Hesher wasn't all that bad of a movie but It wasn't all that good either.Joseph Gordon-Levitt was perfect in his role as Hesher though

A sortof 'drama-dy' about couping with loss, forgiveness and the like. Hesher is a cool, funny and very anti-everything character, but he is also an unlikely source of wise advice. The film hias a good mix of touching moments and laughs.

An odd, bizarre movie where this guy, Hesher, just sort of starts hanging out with a father and son who are grieving the loss of their wife/mother. I think the story tries to be a "total stranger shows people how to live" angle, but honestly, the character of Hesher is so weird that it makes absolutely zero sense that this family would just allow him to hang out. He's really not that interesting of a character either. Natalie Portman is...around, as an object of desire for the kid. All in all, this strange tale isn't really worth your time, despite the actors involved and a pretty good performance from Rainn Wilson.
