Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 08/21/2009
"With a merciless acuity this nihilistic comedy ridicules collective grief and the news media's cynical marketing of inspirational uplift after a death."
Los Angeles Times - 08/28/2009
"For all of its cutting cynicism, DAD proves unexpectedly moving in its portrait of a middle-aged man leaving childish things behind."
A.V. Club - 08/20/2009
"[A] savagely funny, unexpectedly touching exploration of the need to idealize and romanticize the dead..." -- Grade: B+
Movieline - 08/21/2009
"[F]ully charged with angst and anguish and unrelenting bitterness that periodically gives way to one of the year's sweetest, sincerest character dramas."
Entertainment Weekly - 09/04/2009
"[A] toxic satire of celebrity, hypocrisy, and the power of idiotic suggestion. Williams hasn't been this sympathetic in years." -- Grade: B+
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2010
"[Goldthwait] does pull off the considerable feat of drawing an entirely believable, sympathetic and funny performance from Williams."
Empire - 09/01/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "It's a great concept, zig-zagging between heart-splintering tragedy and dark comedy."
Sight and Sound - 09/01/2010
"[Williams gives] his best performance in years....Goldthwait tightens his focus and the film morphs into a provocative commentary on the exploitation of death and collective gullibility."
Total Film - 10/01/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "Goldthwait keeps us wittily wrong-footed, right up to the climax."

Product Description:

Comedy giants Robin Williams and Bobcat Goldthwait collaborate on this darkly funny film that played at Sundance. After the shocking accidental death of his son, Lance (Williams) writes a fake suicide note to keep his family from more trouble. But Lance is a talented writer, and the letter soon becomes an entire book which Lance is eager to sell. Goldthwait directs a cast that also includes Daryl Sabara and Alexie Gilmore.
