...a bitterly dark comedy whose aim is uncomfortably true.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Here, Williams has a chance to do some of the most integral, gentle and praiseworthy acting of his career.

... This voyage through the moral maze is more entertaining and whisper it quietly, more profound, than most.
September 29, 2010
Goldthwait has given it a title that will make some shy away. But don't. It's a comedy about the particularly American capacity to create legends out of the dead, and it's sharper than most.

Beware that poster, with its jolly red writing and Mork from Ork's face thereon. This is not the Robin Williams of Old Dogs and License To Wed.

A comedy of quite astonishing blackness.

Writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait can't quite manage to bring things to a satisfying conclusion, but he's good enough at weaving the freakishly perverse into the everyday without the results seeming too forced.

Goldthwait's pacing is uncertain, and his humour is frequently "off", but the sense of risky provocation is compelling.

It's good to see Williams trying something darker than usual, but it's a pity the whimsy is laid on so thick.

Sadly, the ending seems unsatisfying but the journey there is a funny one.

Williams keeps his head above water, and a giddy climax recuperates some of the original energy -- enough, at least, to make this director's next project one worth rooting for anew.

This film is bold and provocative, but it's weak at the core. It is the weakness of an old dog trying desperately to learn new tricks.

September 23, 2010
It's the most daring black comedy of the year, and I admire its willingness to be not only vicious, but downright un-American.

What threatens to be the World's Greatest Dud proves anything but.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 23, 2010
The cinematography and some of the performances are not stellar, but Goldthwait's script is extraordinary, examining the choices we make between surviving and really living.

Odd, confident, challenging, and featuring a brilliant turn by Williams. If only there was just a little more to it.

September 22, 2010
A startlingly excellent dark comedy about the power of positive posthumous PR. One of 2010's must-see movies.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
September 22, 2010
The bravest, smartest comedy of the year.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

If creating cutting-edge comedy is about pushing boundaries then World's Greatest Dad comfortably fits the bill.
