WORLD’S GREATEST DAD with Bobcat Goldthwait Live this Thursday!

worlds_greatest_dad_2009_1024x768_36432It's been a hell of a week. And it's about to get even better for you, Austin movie fans.

This Thursday night, that's tomorrow if you're reading this today, we'll welcome the great Bobcat Goldthwait to the Alamo Lamar for a very special Fantastic Fest presentation of his new black comedy WORLD'S GREATEST DAD. The trailer looks very funny and it's great seeing Robin Williams doing rude comedy again, especially for a writer/director whose last film was a romantic comedy with the central plot element being oral sex with a dog.

Check out these reviews:

Devin Faraci of CHUD, a hard man to please, calls it: "An amazing work of dark, dark genius."

Aaron Hillis at the Village Voice calls it: "scandalously entertaining."

Erik Childress at eFilm Critic says it's "Robin Williams' best work since his psycho double-dip in 2002 with INSOMNIA and ONE HOUR PHOTO and Goldthwait's finest outing as both a writer and director."

Bit by bit, from SHAKES THE CLOWN through SLEEPING DOGS LIE to WORLD'S GREATEST DAD, Bobcat Goldthwait is proving himself to be one of the most interesting film auteurs around. Please join us as we welcome him to the Alamo Drafthouse.

Demand for this has been great and we've moved it into a larger theater to accommodate everyone which means more tickets are available. Get them here.
