[A] toxic satire of celebrity, hypocrisy, and the power of idiotic suggestion. Williams hasn't been this sympathetic in years. -- Grade: B+
3 stars out of 5 -- It's a great concept, zig-zagging between heart-splintering tragedy and dark comedy.
With a merciless acuity this nihilistic comedy ridicules collective grief and the news media's cynical marketing of inspirational uplift after a death.
New York Times
[Goldthwait] does pull off the considerable feat of drawing an entirely believable, sympathetic and funny performance from Williams.
Sight and Sound
Rating: 4/5 -- We can't wait to see what Goldthwait does next.
Little White Lies
Rating: 4/5 -- The film's direction isn't always confident - there are baggy sections, and it's rarely deeply moving - but it is consistently funny. Full Review
For all of its cutting cynicism, DAD proves unexpectedly moving in its portrait of a middle-aged man leaving childish things behind.
Los Angeles Times
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.
