Jumanji and Good Will Hunting are the first to pop into my head.

Mrs. Doubtfire and Jack aren't too far behind.

Aladdin, Doubtfire, and Hook for me. Those were big movies when I was growing up.

Ms. Doubtfire for comedy, GMV/DPS for drama.

That probably says a lot about his abundance of really good roles.

I was very young when I first saw him so associate him with Mork on Happy Days and his show and also Popeye. Was a number of years before I even saw him in anything else. Was way too young for his standup or his appearances on Letterman and other late night shows.

I know all of 'em.

Oddly, when I closed my eyes, I first thought of Mrs. Doubtfire and ... Flubber. Probably something to do with being around 10-or-so when those came out.

A lot of you guys skipped World's Greatest Dad. One of his top tier movies.
