I was guilty of judging a book by its cover, or in this situation, VCR case. I recall voting for the other choice, and remember being very disappointed when polls showed that "Hook" had the majority vote. As the movie played, I became entranced with the continuation story of Peter Pan.
Robin Williams played a grown up Peter Pan who hasn't visited Neverland since entering the adult world and taking on real world responsibilities. Captain Hook was still seeking revenge and kidnapped Peter's two children. Peter would have no choice but to go back to Neverland to rescue his children. The children of Neverland did not accept Peter since he had grown up but agreed to help him rekindle his childhood spirit so he could work up the courage to confront his nemesis, Captain Hook.
Mrs. Doubtfire was the first Robin Williams movie I watched. I still have the VHS. I remember enjoying the scene when his brother (Jack?) turned him into the Scottish Nanny with an amazing resume, sabotaging and throwing a lemon at James Bond himself, getting caught by his son peeing while standing up, and saving Mr. Bond's life by giving him the Heimlich and exposing his cover. I believe it was the first time I was introduced to the concept of divorce.
In fourth grade, I was hooked by his portray of Peter Pan in Hook. Later on, he would capture my attention again in Jumanji as the adult Alan Parrish.
The last movie I remember watching was One Hour Photo. This was a darker side of him as he portrayed Sy the photo guy at Savmart. Sy obsessed over a family who he believed to be the perfect family. Things went a bit too far when he began inserting himself into the family's problems. As creepy as his character was, I really enjoyed this side of Robin Williams, and it's a true shame what happened. I am aware he's known for other great movies, but those are the ones I loved.
