World's Greatest Dad

 (2009)

World's Greatest Dad Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Lance Clayton is 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 is an insufferable jackass who won't give his father the time of day. Lance dates Claire, 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.

World's Greatest Dad Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Magnolia Home Entertainment's Blu-ray division has given World's Greatest Dad a solid 1080p/VC-1 encoded transfer that's true-to-source and a pleasure to watch. Slightly off focus renders a few shots soft, but most of the film has an acute sense of clarity that crisply reproduces the furrows in Robin William's brow, the threading in a grief counselor's tacky sweater, and the individual hairs on Daryl Sabara's ginger head. The color scheme is warm and saturated, dominated by neutral tones and a slightly yellowish cast, but featuring big splashes of color like the bright red school uniforms, Alexie Gilmore's blue polka dot bathrobe, and the lush green of Seattle's rain- soaked foliage. Black levels are deep without endangering shadow detail, contrast is nicely weighted, and skin tones are healthy and unwavering. The film's grain structure is fine and untouched, and only a few extra-dark scenes show any signs of amped-up analog noise. Likewise, I didn't spot any wayward artifacts, DNR abuses, or other technical issues, and the print is pristine. This one might not sparkle with the sheen of the latest blockbuster, but it's certainly a polished indie gem.


World's Greatest Dad Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

World's Greatest Dad serves up a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that's clean, dynamically sound, but noticeably lacking in rear channel engagement. In fact, for most of the film, you'll be wondering why the producers opted for a 5.1 track at all, as the most you'll ever hear in the surround speakers is some faint reverb from the music that's being blasted up front. But while there were definitely a few moments when I felt the film could've been more immersive if it had wanted to, I was still rather pleased with this track. It may leave your rear speakers languishing quietly, but the front channels make up for it with a well-balanced mix that keeps the focus on the dialogue—which is always easily understood—while also pumping out the occasional pop song. The Queen/Bowie hit "Under Pressure," perhaps best known for its bass hook, so memorably sampled by Vanilla Ice in "Ice, Ice, Baby," sounds especially fantastic. It may stay firmly ensconced up front and center, but temper your expectations accordingly and you should have no qualms with this quiet but effective track.
