Directed by Bobcat Goldthwait | 2009

With Robin Williams, Daryl Sabara, Alexie Gilmore, Geoffrey Pierson, Henry Simmons

"Goldthwait's script turns into a surprisingly restrained, focused sendup of the blind adulation often bestowed on flawed personalities once they croak too soon."
—Variety

When his nightmare of a teenage son croaks from autoerotic asphyxiation, high school teacher burnout Lance (Williams) unscrupulously spins the boy’s death to his own advantage—painting his reviled offspring as a misunderstood martyr and collecting his fifteen minutes of fame in the process. Goldthwait’s boundary-demolishing satire ruthlessly skewers media-invented hero worship. “With his delicate mix of sick humor and compassion, Goldthwait is that rare comic writer who can legitimately be compared to Lenny Bruce” —Chicago Reader.
