Robin Williams

Is IMO the worst actor ever. I have never found him funny in the least. He is really not funny and annoying. Why does anyone hire him for a movie?


Discuss.

Same.

Go see the movie Awakenings and then try to say he isn't a good actor.

Yeah. His Live on Broadway DVD was ****ing awesome. We watched it in Social Studies class one day our teacher didn't feel like teaching.

He's really good at what he does, but he should stick to comedy. It's not that he wasn't good in some of his more dramatic roles, it was just weird seeing his Good Morning Vietnam face in something that isn't meant to be funny.

Also, he did the voice of Genie in Aladdin, and if that doesn't make him awesome nothing will.

Your teacher is ****ing awesome, not unlike Robin Williams.

He did a great job in "One Hour Photo" as well... and he is hilarious in comedies as well. I'll admit that his last attempt at a comedy ("RV" or something like that) was atrociously bad, but all of his other ones have been great! Maybe you haven't seen enough of his work. Oh, and to prove that he's hilarious...

^^ Watch it.

Have you not seen Goodwill Hunting? He was great in that. I will admit he has been in some crappy movies lately, but when he is playing a serious role, he ****ing rocks.

He must have been pissing buckets after that night.

One of my favorites is his skit on alcohol at the Metropolitan Opera house.


It's 3am, you just pissed in a dumpster, it's Miller Time!

I think Williams, like a lot of comedians, is a pretty good actor. Comedians typically make decent actors. Dane Cook is an exception.

But anyone who says Williams doesn't belong in acting hasn't seen Good Morning Vietnam, or One Hour Photo, or Good Will Hunting, or his other more dramatic pieces.

****ty actors don't get nominated for 3 oscars for lead actor(The Fisher King, Dead Poets Society, Good Morning Vietnam; according to imdb.com) and win 1 oscar for best supporting actor (Good Will Hunting).

Good Morning Vietnam, Good Will Hunting, Jacob The Liar, Flubber (cause I liked it), Jumanji (again I liked it), Aladdin (once again), Dead Poets Society, Popeye, and finally Moscow on the Hudson

Thats all that needs to be said, He's a good comedy actor, but anything else and hes crap. He was good in Jacob the Liar and Good Will Hunting as well as Dead Poets Society and Moscow on the Hudson but thats about it on the serious side of the films hes done.

Take a look at some of his older work and you'll see some decent funny stuff.

EDIT that who's line episode was only beaten by the richard simmons one in how funny it was.
