WORLD'S GREATEST DAD (2009) [feature]

USA (MIFF 2010 , International Panorama)
Director: Bobcat Goldthwait

“A crazy, foul-mouthed black comedy that blows up every rule of taste and common sense and somehow gets away with it.” - Entertainment Weekly

With pitch-black humour and the subtlety of a sledgehammer, comedian and filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait (Sleeping Dogs Lie, Shakes the Clown) offers his funniest and most poignant film to date with World's Greatest Dad, a biting social commentary and comedy of errors about (un)fortunate opportunity.

Features an impressively restrained Robin Williams as the father of one of the most reprehensible, obnoxious teenagers ever put to celluloid.

“Recalls early John Waters' movies, particularly the funny blend of outre ideas and scatological humour.” - Screen International
