It wasn't easy trying to come up with the movies for the polls, since Robin Williams has done many movies.  So I tried my best and here's a list of movies that first come to mind when I think of Robin Williams.

I went with Jumanji, it's not as boring as most of his films. I remember when it came out, and the special fx were like this huge revolution. It's still a good movie though, it's fun, and more funny then most of his efforts...

Other: Either Good Morning Vietnam or Dead Poets Society hard to compare as they are so different but I think they are probably his best films, amazed you put neither on the list.

I really liked Hook. I'm not a big Peter Pan fan, but I like pirates. It was a fun movie, and had an interesting concept behind it. I haven't seen many other Robin Williams movies, because I'm just not a big fan (I think he can be a bit to over the top at times).

I agree with Tweek, I'm surprised one of those two didn't make it. Although I am still partial to his work in The World According to Garp.

Hook was the first film I ever saw and I still enjoy it today, so I'll go for that.

Sorry, that your favorite movies didn't get on the poll, but Williams does about four films a year for the late to decades.  I had to select from a wide range, based on his comical, and dramatic roles.

Good Morning Vietnam was hilarious. It's one of the only Robin Williams movies I like.

Except that Popeye and Bicentennial Man are shit, while Dead Poets Society and Good Morning Vietnam are good (and generally regarded as his best films).

Good Morning Vietnam is my favorite movie. But Mrs. Doubtfire, The World According to Garp, Patch Adams, Awakenings and Good Will Hunting are great movies to.

I prefer slightly aberrant films so I'm not surprised my choices aren't there. Dead Poets Society and Toys were my favourites. I did really like What Dreams May Come on first viewing but not so much now

Damn, I also forgot The Birdcage.  I've never seen it, but my friend says it was a good film.

though, Patch Adams and Awakenings were real good... Also, I should go see this "Good Morning Vietnam." Before this thread, I've herd good comments about it, so it will be interesting to see what its like.

Boy, lots of Williams movies I haven't seen.

Oddly I'd probably have to go with "Death to Smoochy", an underrated and hilarious satiric movie.  "One Hour Photo" and "Insomnia" are both great though, excellent dramatic acting on Williams' part.  "Hook" and "Jumanji" I liked when I was a kid, but haven't seen since, so I don't know if I just liked them for the "I'll watch anything" factor that aplies to all kids.

Never seen "Good Morning Vietnam" and a large number of his other films.

Good Morning Vietnam gets my vote as it is a truely exellent film. He is a great actor but this is probably his greatest performance to date convering all bases both his waccy stuff and actual acting.

He was good in "Nince Months" as the Russian doctor... that was the only good part of that not so good movie.

Death to Smoochy
Loved the neo-nazi rally scene and some funny little jokes.
