Robin Willaims' Faves

Linking up for another edition of Friday Favorites!  The death of Robin Williams came as such a shock this week!  It's always hard to believe someone who made us all laugh so hard  and for so long, was so sad in his own life!  So today I am going to highlight some of my favorite Robin Williams no particular order!  (These might show my age!!)

Mrs. Doubtfire: Who didn't love this one?  And with Sally Field and everything.  It was a comedy, but I'll admit I shed a tear or too!

Aladdin: That voice was unmistakable and nobody could have played the genie better!  Indeed, "'re free" now!

Dead Poets Society: This is a great one!  When I was in eighth grade I had an English teacher who made us re-create the scene where we all had to get up on the desk and look at the room in a whole new perspective.  I didn't remember that until I watched the movie again earlier this week!!

JACK: I feel like this movie never got the credit it deserved.  But this week as I scoped out my Facebook news feed and saw all the trends and tributes to Robin Williams, I found that I wasn't the only one who thought this movie was a good one!  I used to watch this movie all the time with the kids I baby-sat for.  We would all sit there and laugh and cry!  And now looking back at that final graduation speech that Jack gave, the words ring so true, because Robin Williams is really gone now!

Good Will Hunting...this one is really my favorite actually.  I saw it in the movies the weekend (maybe even the day) it came out.  I know that this movie made stars of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, but THE STAR of the movie was Robin Williams.  With all of his soliloquies and dialogue that meant something and spoke to so many.
And because it's my favorite I thought I'd include might have seen it this week! (*WARNING: Explicit language in the clip! The film is rated R)

I know there are a dozen more great Robin Willaims' movies!  Share YOUR favorites with me in the comments below!  Have a great weekend!!

Linking up with Lauren Elizabeth for High Five for Friday, The Farmer's Wife  and September Farm for Oh Hey! Friday and Erika, Andrea and Narci for Friday Favorites!


  1. My most favorites are: Mork & Mindy the tv show. I remember watching it as a little girl and loving it. Movie wise was Patch Adams. I could cry just thinking about it right now it really helped me decide I wanted to be in healthcare but still in education! xoxo Brownie

  2. Stopping by from the linkup. Love Alladin!! We watched it on one of the Disney channels this morning.

  3. I grew up watching Mrs. Doubtfire
    Such a tragedy and loss to his fan base

  4. I still can't believe he's gone! I loved so many of his movies but Mrs. Doubtfire was my favorite I think. I totally forgot about Jack.. that was a good one, too!

  5. He had so many great films and I also loved the Mork & Mindy show. Can't believe he's gone!


  6. Oh my goodness! I almost forgot about the movie Jack. He was so SO talented and really brought so many people happiness and laughter. My top three Robin movies have to be Birdcage, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Patch Adams. One weekend I am going to have a whole Robin movie marathon in his honor. So tragic. oxox, Amanda
