World’s Greatest Dad (14/01/12)
A comedy about a man who learns that 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.
IMDB – you lie. This isn’t a straight-up comedy, black comedy yes, but comedy. No. Things get pretty dark. Also, I don’t think I actually laughed at any point during the film. That’s not uncommon. But there were, maybe, a couple of points where I had a smile on my face.
There was one point in the film that really moved me, thanks to Robin Williams’ doing some pretty good drama-acting. But overall, I didn’t get on with this film. I was bored/annoyed throughout various points. The ending was satisfying. Even with the film being a shade over 90 minutes, it still felt like it took a little too long to get there for me. That’s just my mind being a bit weird.
It’s not a bad film, but it’s not all that memorable for me.
