OK, maybe not, but World's Greatest Dad promises to be great if not the greatest.
Written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait, the film stars Robin Williams as Lance Clayton, a man who dreams of becoming a renowned writer but is instead a high-school poetry teacher raising a hormonally charged, foul-mouthed teenage son who abhors him. When an opportunity comes a knocking in the shape of freak accident, Lance takes advantage of it to gain the fame and fortune he's yearned for. But at what price?
The trailer is a red band so, depending on where you work, it may be NSFW.
Look for more from Goldthwait in the upcoming issue of Boise Weekly. He'll be in town on Saturday, July 18 for a stand-up gig at the Knitting Factory.
