World's Greatest Dad Synopsis

From writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait (Sleeping Dogs Lie, Shakes the Clown) comes World's Greatest Dad, a thoughtful but outrageous comedy about a man that learns the things you want most may not be the things that make you happy, and that being lonely is not necessarily the same as being alone.

Robin Williams stars as Lance Clayton, a single dad who has learned to settle in life. He dreams of being a rich and famous writer, but has a thankless job as a high school poetry teacher. His only son Kyle (Daryl Sabara) is an insufferable jackass who won’t give his father the time of day. He is dating Claire (Alexie Gilmore), the school’s adorable art teacher, but she doesn’t want to get serious -- or even acknowledge publicly that they are dating.

Then, in the wake of a freak accident, Lance suffers the worst tragedy and greatest opportunity of his life. He is suddenly faced with the possibility of all the fame, fortune and popularity he ever dreamed of, if he can just live with the knowledge of how he got there.

Written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait, World's Greatest Dad stars Robin Williams, Alexie Gilmore, Daryl Sabara, Geoff Pierson, Henry Simmons and Mitzi McCall. The film was produced by Tim Perrell, Howard Gertler, Sean McKittrick and Richard Kelly and co-produced by Sarah de Sa Rego.

Exclusive Interview: Bobcat Goldthwait Exclusive Interview: Bobcat Goldthwait
Bobcat Goldthwait isn't that wild about teenagers. You'll get that sense in the first few moments of World's Greatest Dad as soon as you meet Kyle (Daryl Sabara), the most vile, profane, awful teenager ever seen onscreen

Red Band Trailer: Robin Williams Is The World's Greatest Dad Red Band Trailer: Robin Williams Is The World's Greatest Dad
Robin Williams is taking a break from banal, brain dead family movies to return to the world of edgy, fucked up comedy. You know, the stuff he used to do back when he was coked out of his mind
