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.
September 22, 2010
The bravest, smartest comedy of the year.
September 22, 2010
If creating cutting-edge comedy is about pushing boundaries then World's Greatest Dad comfortably fits the bill.

I loved the film's what-the-hell attitude to production values. The cinematography is no better than it should be, the sets are any place that will plug in a production cable. I loved the sourly but smartly inventive script.

While it won't be everyone's cuppa, it's a welcome return to form for Williams. If only someone could get him to sign that no-nudity clause...
September 22, 2010
A surprising, hilarious and thoroughly satisfying film, whose willingness to take risks makes it feel like a 'proper' indie film in a sea of pesudo-independent imitators.

It's almost too great a stretch to believe that Bobcat Goldthwait...could have become one of Hollywood's most interesting and daring writer/directors.

Goldthwait's script turns into a surprisingly restrained, focused sendup of the blind adulation often bestowed on flawed personalities once they croak too soon.
June 3, 2010
It's one of Williams' best performances.

Works for those who like a little black in their comedy

It's the kind of flick that makes you laugh and feel like maybe you shouldn't be chuckling quite so hard. Well you shouldn't, you sick bastard.

... more clever than smart, but very funny and Williams underplays the part nicely.
December 17, 2009 intriguing set-up that's generally employed to compelling effect by Goldthwait...
December 6, 2009
Pitch-black Robin Williams comedy too edgy for young teens.
November 17, 2009
Tonally erratic, but chock-full of interesting concepts.
November 13, 2009
Not a terrible movie about a Walter Mitty dad and a creepy son who kills himself through asphyxiation while jerking off. If you like dark comedy, you will like this. At least, it is more interesting than the latest commodity from Jude Apatow.
November 6, 2009
A mind-blowing shot of misanthropic, black-comic genius.
November 1, 2009
Hit-and-miss black comedy about getting your 15 minutes of fame. The first act is so overdone that you want to bail, but it all comes together by the time you reach the very predictable ending. Paul Chambers, CNN.
October 27, 2009
In the end everything comes out as mawkish as you would expect from a Robin Williams film.
