Movie Review by RONNIE
September 4th, 2009

Dark Comedy, Story Line

World's Greatest DAD, an "off the wall" comedy, and I say, way off the wall!!! Robin Williams, who stars as Lance Clayton, gives us an outstanding performance in this story. Lance Clayton is a teacher who dreamed of being a rich and famous writer, but has only managed to make it as a high school poetry teacher. He has an only son Kyle, (Daryl Sabara) who is a real fruit cake and an absolute jerk who constantly brings him grief; a son that you want to strangle. His son Kyle ends up choking to death while masturbating with a strap wrapped around his neck. To save face, Lance makes it look like a suicide and writes a suicide note that receives him popularity that he never had before. This crazy story goes on and on with surprises and twists. The ending of the story was more or less predictable, and I did not like it that much. I think that Lance Clayton should have never told the truth. This time, the untruth was helping students and teachers with their trials, troubles and tribulations, in and out of school. Sometimes things are better left unsaid. As I was leaving the theater, I was told by an official and possibly pay T.V. promoting the movie that the film was going straight to DVD. This dark comedy, which has a good story line, was intended to target a male audience of 18-45 year olds. A must see.
