Hank Moody is a man with writer's block.
Living in California, following a move from New York City, he has trouble balancing all the factors in his life: there's his struggling career, his relationship with his daughter and ex-girlfriend and, of course, his desire for beautiful women. Many come and go from his bed.
Moody also enjoys his drinking and his drugging. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Nobody likes you. You're ugly and your mother dresses you funny. Now smile, you f--cking douche!Hank Moody
Movie Karen: Why does he love her so much? I mean what is it about her?
Hank: I don't know. I don't think I've ever known. I think sometimes you get it right the first time and then it defines your life. It becomes who you are.
