Everyone knows Owen Wilson says “what?” a lot in movies. What this video presupposes is…maybe he says it even more than we realized? One brave YouTube user has compiled a two-minute super-cut of the actor uttering that one word ad infinitum, with Wilson’s delivery ranging from mildly confused to utterly exasperated. Watch it below.
The video accounts for almost all of the actor’s filmography, including “Bottle Rocket,” “Wedding Crashers,” “The Royal Tenenbaums,” “Shanghai Noon,” “Shanghai Knights,” “The Darjeeling Limited,” “The Internship,” “The Haunting,” “Midnight in Paris” and so on and so forth. Wilson’s slight drawl has always been part and parcel of his onscreen charisma, imbuing even the most mundane dialogue with a certain verve, and here he displays that talent over and over again.
Wilson most recently appeared in this year’s “Zoolander No. 2” and “Masterminds”; he’ll next be seen in “Bastards” and “Cars 3.”
