First off, Robin Williams. Secondly, Robin, fucking Williams! Mrs Doubtfire is a classic comedy.

Who says you need a feel good movie or a comedy to make you feel better? Liam Neeson will look for you, he will find you and he will fucking stab ya mate if you don’t watch this movie! It’s so action packed with guns and bloody violence (literally), you’ll be so distracted from your shitty life sitch because you're too busy on the edge of your seat! You’ll also be left thinking the impossible is achievable. If you can chace a boat whilst you’re in a car driving down a small, European, one-way
