Bobcat Goldthwait's World's Greatest Dad is getting a theatrical release on August 21st, but -- as we told you back in April -- you can watch it in the comfort of your own home starting this week, as the film has appeared on video-on-demand services around the country.

It's pretty remarkable how the practice of releasing smaller films On Demand simultaneously with, or even in advance of a theatrical release has spread (also currently available: Pontypool, Dead Snow and the fantastic Flame & Citron). But I'm not trying to shill for Comcast. I am trying to shill for World's Greatest Dad, which I ordered on Friday and enjoyed immensely.
