Weird. I was pretty much 100% sure this would be epic based on its reputation and the idea of it, and so I was committed for some time to watching it. I stumbled through maybe 45 minutes of it now and can't even bring myself to want to finish it. Robin Williams was compelling for the first few of his classes, but eventually the movie as a whole just wasn't doing it for me. The scenes with the students sans Robin Williams just didn't have enough edge on them for me. And as I said, after maybe 2 or 3 of Robin Williams' scenes I wasn't all that enthralled by him either. May have to re-visit or postulate that for whatever reason the movie just doesn't translate as well into our time as it did at the time of its release??
