World’s Greatest Dad

Last night I watched World’s Greatest Dad, which is a dark comedy from Bobcat Goldthwait. The film stars Robin Williams as a struggling writer/teacher, who has a teenage son who can be slightly difficult. Okay, never mind, his son is an asshole.

His kid accidentally hangs himself during a little auto-erotic asphyxiation. Williams decides to make it look like a suicide. The suicide note he makes up becomes a huge inspiration and transforms Williams into a popular individual.

The movie is pretty hilarious. Mainly some of the stuff that comes out of the son’s mouth, but also the awkward moments of Robin Williams trying to bond with anyone. If you enjoy dark, morbid humor, then you will like this movie.
