Of course, in today's more enlightened times, it's been documented how the NFL has a concussion epidemic -- which you know is a serious issue if Will Smith makes a movie about it and doesn't rap about the plot over the credits. So it's kind of insane that this movie tries to spin a legitimate reason to go get another job and never play football again into a triumphant moment about how near-fatalities can be used to get way more money and play way more football. If Jerry Maguire were remade today, the titular character would still be played by Tom Cruise, but he'd have to maniacally scream "Show me the dementia pugilistica!"
Robin Williams' Character In Mrs. Doubtfire Was A Total Shitheel
Robin Williams was an absolute genius. With that out of the way, let's talk about how his character in this movie was a complete turd. For some reason, a lot of '90s kids think of Mrs. Doubtfire as one of his crowning cinematic achievements, as opposed to what it really is: the story of a psychotic dirtbag who, yes, could do some pretty funny voices.
The movie begins with Williams' character, Daniel, throwing a birthday party for his son -- which would be nice, except for the fact that said party involves livestock wandering the neighborhood, leading to the cops being called. His wife Miranda comes home and freaks the fuck out. What a buzzkill, right?
