In Bobcat Goldthwait’s black comedy “World’s Greatest Dad,’’ Robin Williams plays Lance Clayton, a failed writer and, consequently, a sad-sack high school poetry teacher. His humdrum life turns right-side-up after his son, Kyle (Daryl Sabara), dies during an autoerotic sex act.

Lance, who teaches at Kyle’s school, gains the popularity and respect he’s always craved.
