In which a corner is turned....

Wandering through Netflix's on-demand selection, I ran across World's Greatest Dad, which interested me because it's Bobcat Goldthwait's creation. He was interviewed on some radio show months (years? time funny out here for anybody else?) about making the flick.

Now, I dig Bobcat's comedy, which is reliant much upon the idea of broken people, and am a bigger fan of Shakes the Clown, which is one of the finer dark comedies to wander down the pike in a long, long time. In fact, it is indeed a shame verging on minor tragedy that I do not own that flick on DVD.....

Anyway, I clicked on World's Greatest Dad.

I don't want to say too much on the movie, my kneejerk reactions veer toward the extreme ends of the love/hate spectrum. Want to think on it a moment.

I will say that there are a few moments in various movies that I can precisely point out when and why I like a movie.

Somewhere around minute 37 in this flick, when I was honestly rather iffy on the flick, a sudden corner was turned involving a death of a character.

Yeah. This is a fine, fine comedy, folks.....

Shakes the Clown... Haven't thought of that movie for years. Last night Essie PPVd a flick called 'Love Happens'... Of course by the name, I wasn't that interested... But yeah. Dare I say it? It was a good movie. Kept me up way past my bedtime though.
