From the Roku: World's Greatest Dad (2009)
A couple things surprised me about World's Greatest Dad, 1) It was funny and it starred Robin Williams. My usual rule of thumb is to avoid Robin Williams vehicles, his shtick really really really grates on me. It goes without saying (The Jim Carrey/Eternal Sunshine Principle!?) that I like him better when he tones it down, as he does here. 2) Bobcat Goldthwait directed this!? This is a pitch black comedy which is not perfect at all, but it did make me laugh out loud quite a few times.
