I havent seen all of his movies, but Mrs. Doubtfire is definitely a favorite of mine! So sad, i too hope this helps raise awareness of mental illness and the silent struggle people face.

I absolutely adore Awakenings, Good Will Hunting and, wow, Dead Poet’s Society. Rest in peace. He will be missed.

I’m the same as you. I grew up with him . Mork and Mindy, Aladdin, Hook, and Mrs. Doubtfire is still one of my favorite movies. He will be so missed. He was one of a kind.

BurlapnLace:  You echoed what I’ve been feeling exactly.  I balled my eyes out last night…like for an hour.  Over someone I’ve never met.  I can’t even say that I’ve even thought about Robin Williams in years.   But there was just something about him that connected with so many people.  Your FI is so right…we grew up with him and he touched our lives in a way that most of us likely never realized until yesterday.  Such a devastating loss.

I love Mrs. Doubtfire, Dead Poet’s Society, and his voiceover as the Genie.  Really, I loved a lot of his work.  RIP, Mr. Williams.  I am saddened by your loss.

Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, Dead Poet’s Society, Hook, The Birdcage… it’s such a shame, he was such a talented and wonderful man. I hope he understood how much he was loved by the people he touched. RIP

HOOK. Good Will Hunting, Dead Poet’s Society, Mrs. Doubtfire…. oh, pretty much all of them. Even Jumanji. 


I feel the same way. I kept saying to DH “I’m oddly upset by Robin Williams dying… not sure why this is making me so sad” But very very heartbreaking. Especially to realize that this man, who made million laugh for decades, felt so hopeless. Just very tragic. His poor family.

Mrs. Doubtfire! We still use lines from it in normal every day conversations, and even emoticons at work! Hellllooooooo!!!

I also loved Good Morning, Vietnam and Patch Adams. And I can’t forget about Hook… or Aladdin. Really… I loved anything he was in.

I agree, I was very shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. I loved all of his work – such a great actor and comic. He will truly be missed!

Yes, exactly. It’s as if an important piece of my childhood just died. So incredibly tragic. I can only hope this will help raise mental health awareness and save some lives. 

As for favorites, I have a four-way tie between Hook, Aladdin, Dead Poet’s Society, and Good Will Hunting.
