Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Night at the Museum

As the legend goes, the teddy bear was first made for Teddy Roosevelt, who refused to shoot a bear that was tied to a tree. Of course, the teddy bear has become one of the greatest comfort items for children everywhere. In "Night at the Museum" (2006), Robin Williams plays the part of a waxed replica of Theodore Roosevelt that comes to life after sunset at the museum. Teddy's character makes quick friends with Ben Stiller's character Larry, the new night guard for the museum. Teddy is the one who tells Larry the secret behind why all the museum displays come to life each night.
2. Jumanji

In "Jumanji", (1995) Robin Williams plays the role of Alan Parrish, who has been trapped for 26 years in an all too real jungle inside a larger-than-life board game. When Judy and Peter discover Alan's old board game, they begin to play, not knowing the danger. Soon jungle creatures, like rhinoceroses, giant mosquitoes, and mischievous monkeys, appear in real life causing havoc around town! Williams plays the adult Alan who, after 26 years in the jungle, appears like a wild Tarzan-type of character. Acting silly and zany is one of the things Williams does best, and he does not let fans down in this fun tale.
3. Hook

The film "Hook" is a twist of the traditional Peter Pan story. In the film, Robin Williams plays an adult Peter Banning who actually has forgotten he ever was the boy who refused to grow up. Instead, adult Peter is a successful lawyer who has let his job consume him to the detriment of his family.

It is not until he visits his wife's grandmother, Wendy Darling, that things start happening ... including Captain Hook stealing Peter's children! The film is a fun adaptation, and Julia Roberts plays an excellent Tinkerbell.
4. Dead Poets Society

The picture is of Walt Whitman, who wrote the poem "O Captain! My Captain!" about Abraham Lincoln. In the film "Dead Poets Society" (1989), Robin Williams, as the character John Keating, plays the role of a new English teacher at a stuffy all-boys private school. Keating uses Whitman's poem to help the boys get in touch with their feelings and creativity, which is something that is heavily discouraged by the rest of the school. Keating's encouragement to think for themselves and dream encourages the boys to resurrect an ancient club called the Dead Poets Society. Of course, questioning authoritarian figures in power usually does not end well for the questioner.

This film is a masterpiece and my favorite Robin Williams film.
5. Mrs. Doubtfire

In the film "Mrs. Doubtfire" (1993), Robin Williams plays the part of a fun-loving and rarely serious voice actor named Daniel Hillard. His wife in the film, Miranda (played by Sally Field), is obsessed with work and does not appreciate her husband's silly antics.

In fact, it gets to the point where Miranda divorces Daniel, and since he is jobless at the time, he only gets visitation rights on every other weekend ... if he is employed. While Daniel does find a job, things really get interesting when he discovers his ex-wife is looking to hire a housekeeper and Daniel knows just the right wo"man" for the job! This film is clever and hysterical.
6. Patch Adams

"Patch Adams" (1998), is based on the true story of a young man who found humor was a more effective treatment for his mental pain than anything the doctors did. Robin Williams plays the role of Hunter "Patch" Adams as he works his unorthodox way through medical school. Set in the late 1960s, when doctors' training kept a distance from their patients. Adams worked closely with the nursing staff to get to know the patients and to use humor to help them through their challenges.

His character focused on treating dying with dignity and a bit of humor.

It is a touching film that is guaranteed to make the watcher both laugh and cry like only a Robin Williams character can.
7. Good Morning Vietnam

"Good Morning Vietnam" (1987) was a huge breakout film role for Robin Williams. The film is loosely based on the experiences of Armed Forces Radio Service disc jockey Adrian Cronauer. The film does not sugarcoat the horrors of the war but instead shows the brave attempt of Cronauer to raise the morale of the troops.

His very unorthodox style gives a bit of fun in the morning for the men and his honesty of what is really going on often puts Adrian in trouble with the officers. The film is another that will have you laughing one minute and crying the next.
8. Good Will Hunting

"Good Will Hunting" (1997) is a film about a brilliant, self-taught young man with a troubled past played by Matt Damon. Once he is paroled from prison, he finds a job as a janitor at MIT, where he stumbles upon a difficult mathematical problem left to challenge graduate students. Will proceeds to anonymously answer the question, much to the professor's astonishment.

When the professor realizes who the brilliant mathematician is, he protects Will from going back to jail as long as he gets psychological therapy.

This is where Robin Williams comes in as psychologist Dr. Sean Maguire. Both Will and Dr. Maguire learn to come to peace with the painful parts of each of their pasts, allowing them to grow. This is one of the best films of the nineties.

The film was nominated for 9 Academy Awards, with Robin Williams winning the award for Best Supporting Actor. Remarkably, this was the only Academy Award Robin Williams would win during his career, though he was nominated for 3 others.
9. One Hour Photo

"One Hour Photo" (2002) is a rather different Robin Williams style of film. He plays the role of Seymour "Sy" Parrish, a loner with no family or friends except a pet hamster. Sy works as a film developer for the local SavMart and puts all of his life into his job of developing photos. Sy is particularly fond of the Yorkin family whom he believes to live an idyllic life.

Unfortunately, his obsession leads him to secretly develop extra photos of the family for his own home photo collage. His erratic, obsessive behavior continues to cause tension in the story until it reaches a breaking point. Critics praised Williams highly for his inspired portrayal of a madman.
10. What Dreams May Come

"What Dreams May Come" (1998) is a drama that ponders the question of where we go when we die. Robin Williams plays the role of Dr. Chris Nielsen, who tragically loses his two children in a car accident. Not long after, Chris dies himself, and his wife Annie is left all alone. Once he realizes he can not help comfort Annie, Chris goes on to his ideal paradise. All would be fantastic, except the loss is too much for Annie, and she commits suicide. Chris is grief-stricken when he learns Annie will not be able to join him since suicide victims can only go to hell. Chris decides he must find a way to reunite with Annie.

The film received an Academy Award for "Best Visual Effects" and, indeed, it is a stunning film. The portrayal of heaven and hell is quite remarkable and fascinating for anyone who is interested in those subjects.
