Is this Robin Williams return to form in a movie written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait?…..(yes the Police Acadamy guy)………

Synopsis (from IMDB): 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.

I did not enjoy Bobcat’s last movie Sleeping Dogs Lie, but all the buzz about this movie gives me renewed hope that we can see Robin William being funny again.  Look for a limited release on August 21st.
