World's Greatest Dad

The other day my wife and I watched a movie on Netflix called “World’s Greatest Dad.” It was written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait and stars Robin Williams, who I usually loathe.

I loved it.

I don’t want to give anything away about the plot (the Netflix description says too much in my opinion), other than to say that it’s a really black comedy. I think many of you will get a kick out of it, while others will probably hate it.

Well, uh, thanks for giving us enough information to decide which group we’d fall into, Sparky.

Excuse me for trying to avoid spoilers. If you like very dark comedies, check it out.

There’s a wikipedia entry on it that says what it’s about. After having read it, I can see why he wouldn’t have wanted to say anything. Sounds like one of those movies where you can tell someone the premise without giving away a lot of it.
