Best known for the cult favorite Shakes the Clown (1991), about a grievously alcoholic birthday clown, Bobcat Goldthwait is developing from an inspired bad-taste comedian into a genuinely daring writer-director. This hilarious but troubling comedy stars Robin Williams as a divorced high school English teacher who's always dreamed of being a famous writer but whose main contribution to the world is his crude and hateful teenage son (Daryl Sabara). A series of perverse plot twists allows Williams to construct a gigantic lie that gives him everything he wants in life, but in the process he has to negate his son's very existence, and the charade turns out to be an ethical puzzle with no clear solution. With his delicate mix of sick humor and compassion, Goldthwait is that rare comic writer who can legitimately be compared to Lenny Bruce. R, 99 min.
