This makes me so sad. He was amazing! One of my favs is a live stand up show that we have on DVD! Hilarious! That's all I can say.

I have so many favorites it's hard to pick. Dead Poet society, Aladdin, Hook... I know there is one that is slipping my mind that is also a favorite.

Although he was one of my least favorite actors, it's still so sad. I did like him in Popeye :>) Sometime I'll have to watch Dead Poets Society. We own it but have never watched it. I'm so sorry for his family and friends.

My all time fave movie of his is Good Morning, Viet Nam. But I loved nearly everything he was in. So sad to lose such a comic genius.

What Dreams May Come... that was the other one I was trying to think of. I think I'll watch that tomorrow night and have a good cry.

Very tragic whenever anyone takes their own lives.
He was very generous and I know he did a lot for St Judes.
I did like him Mrs Doubtfire and Aladdin not a huge movie watcher so have not seen all of his movies.

This!
"Aladdin" is my favorite Disney movie Ev-er! And Robin's the main reason why; love the Genie!
And "Good Will Hunting" is one of my favorite non-animated movies Ev-er!!!
In my Top 5 for sure!

Patch Adams is definitely one of my favorite of his. Depression has robbed the world of a great funny man.

Aladdin, Bicentennial Man, Hook, Dead Poets Society, Flubber, The Birdcage, they were all so good! I still need to see Mrs. Doubtfire, Patch Adams, and Good Will Hunting.
I also loved his "Golf" skit. NSFW but soo funny!

I forgot about Birdcage, don't know why that didn't come to mind but I loved him in it! That is one of my favorite movies. I don't know how many times I've watched my DVD.

He truly was a comedic genius.

I went to a lecture in San Jose, California given by Peter Marshall (from Mork & Mindy, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, Etc.) in the 70's and I remember him talking about Robin Williams.

He said they wrote scripts for him but only as a suggestion. He adlibbed his own lines and did it the way he wanted which was always the funniest way but it really kept the other actors on their toes. They had to adlib sometimes just to keep up with sometimes. He was brilliant.
