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.
