it’s only flubber


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”.
