World's Worst Dad

I was catching up with some of Robin Williams brilliant work (standup and movies) after his tragic demise.

Robin Williams plays Lance Clayton, high school poetry teacher and single parent. Lance Clayton is a failed writer, having had several books rejected. His son Kyle performs poorly at school, is ill tempered and disobedient, with few friends. After his son's death caused by autoerotic asphyxiation, Lance makes the death look like suicide. When the school students interpret Kyle's fake suicide note as deeply intelligent, and become the late Kyle's new best friends, Lance exploits this by publishing Kyle's fake Journal. Finally Lance admits Kyle's true cause of death and that he wrote Kyle's Journal. The message of the film is that its better to be alone than to be with people who make you feel alone.

World's Greatest Dad, is probably better titled World's Worst Dad. Neither parent or child have much empathy for each other. Both seemed to be 'losers'. The cause of Kyle's death seems implausible, given Kyle's likely novice experience. The film seems to be seeking attention through highlighting taboo subjects. The message of being alone and unliked, fails for me as the film does not offer solutions for better parenting and focuses for a time on youth suicide, which is not properly dealt with.

The acting was OK, but I felt the messages in the film were off key and inappropriate. 5.5/10

I really enjoyed this movie

Just the right mix of pathos and comedy.,Williams was a very good dramatic actor. Why this film bombed at the box office is beyond my comprehension, as Williams' performance was Oscar worthy. The supporting cast was really great...his son, his girlfriend, the principal, his rival, the neighbor... as well as minor characters all were portrayed very convincingly. The film was totally engrossing and very intelligent. I would certainly recommend this obscure and underrated film.

One of Robin Williams most underrated movies

Hugely underrated, dark comedy movie about a father who deals with his sons accidental death. I have seen it a couple times since it has came out and I will probably see it a couple more times before I die. Robin Williams was always a joy to see or hear in any movie and I appreciate every role he portrayed, even if it was a corny role like Cadillac Man. Lol.
