god bless robin
18 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is not trolling, neither do i want this comment to sound disrespectful in any way.

Watched the movie for robins sake, as it was one of his last movies. Family Christmas themed comedy, yay! Though, what it really was, is just an awfully written drama.

First thing that came to my mind after finishing the movie was disturbing, but i think there's a lot of truth in it. Basically what i thought was that this movie took a part in what killed him. If i casted in such movie, i'd want to kill myself too.

I didn't find single scene even slightly funny. All it has been is marathon of sadness. Robin dedicated his life to laughter and making people around happy and the opportunities and surroundings have just thrown bricks beneath his feet. If i met the person that wrote this script in person, i'd throw in a few punches. I'm not a violent person, but how can one make Christmas themed comedy with robin williams in cast this sad?

I'm not even going to comment the movie/plot itself, as it's not worthy of words.

I give this movie 2/10, and that one point goes purely to robin and his utter genius. I adored robin while he was around, and forever will.
