What a strange, hilarious, beautiful, and heartbreaking movie. And from Bobcat Goldthwait? I’ll be honest, every review I have ever read for this film has been glowing, but I still can’t believe that that crazy bastard has this in him. How the hell did the man who set fire to Jay Leno’s chair make this film? Honestly…
Regardless, it is easily one of the top comedies of the year (that was) 2009. Robin Williams is quite possibly the best he has ever been in this film, which is extremely important to note because connecting with his character was the only way that this film was going to work.
Watching this film is the emotional equivalent to watching the most tragic train wreck of all time and still being able to find the humor in the situation. Because let’s face it, without a sense of humour, life just wouldn’t be worth living.
