…I’m gonna be like you dad, you know I’m gonna be like you.

Well the Father’s Day weekend is upon us and so I close the week off with a trailer for WORLDS GREATEST DAD starring Robin Williams.  The trailer is full of laughs and darkness, so needless to say I am ready for this just as much as I’m sure Williams needs this.  Bob Goldthwait (yes this man from Police Academy) directs.  After the jump watch the red band trailer, also added is a little ditty, one of my dads favorite songs.  World’s Greatest Dad hits theaters August 21st 2009.

Robin Williams stars as Lance Clayton, a man who has learned to settle. He dreamed of being a rich and famous writer, but has only managed to make it as a high school poetry teacher. His only son Kyle (Daryl Sabara) is an insufferable jackass who won’t give his father the time of day. He is dating Claire (Alexie Gilmore), the school’s adorable art teacher, but she doesn’t want to get serious — or even acknowledge publicly that they are dating.

Then, in the wake of a freak accident, Lance suffers the worst tragedy and greatest opportunity of his life. He is suddenly faced with the possibility of all the fame, fortune and popularity he ever dreamed of, if he can only live with the knowledge of how he got there.
