My children and I watched “Flubber” tonight….the remake with Robin Williams.
It was pretty good….only pretty good, I suppose….but watching it helped me to remember just how good Robin Williams was.
He was really good in a cute, kind of forgettable movie.
When you’re playing against a cgi bit of green goo or a flying computer….and you generate the range of emotions that he was capable of…well, he was a better actor than I often gave him credit for.
There’s no need to endlessly eulogize Robin Williams.
He was pretty great…that’s established.
That’s a point that’s already been made and celebrated.
But there was a lot more to him than just another funny man.
There was more to him than “Mork”.
