Robin Williams is the kind of man to do just that: lift spirits in situations where spirits need lifting.
2. Bicentennial Man (1999)
What IMDb says about it: An android endeavors to become human as he gradually acquires emotions.
This is probably one of the most underestimated Robin Williams movies. Scratch that! Bicentennial Man is one of the most underestimated movies period.
