It’s been 25 years since Mrs. Doubtfire hit theaters, introducing us to Robin Williams as a hip old granny who can hip hop, bee bop, dance till you drop, and yo yo make a wicked cup of cocoa. Sadly, Robin Williams is no longer with us to celebrate the milestone anniversary of one of the most beloved comedies of the ’90s, but some of the other cast members still took the time to get together.
It appears Mrs. Doubtfire co-star Pierce Brosnan has done a fine job keeping in touch with his step-children from the movie, and a new photo shows him recently reunited with child stars Lisa Jakub, Matthew Lawrence and Mara Wilson, who are now all grown up.

When legendary comedian and actor Robin Williams died in 2014, he left behind a wonderful legacy of entertainment for fans to remember him by. In addition to classic films like Dead Poets’ Society, Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, Hook (don’t @ me), and Good Will Hunting, the fast-talking funnyman also had a handful of movies that were still unreleased at the time of his death.
Most of those films have since made it to theaters except for one: a 2015 Simon Pegg comedy called Absolutely Anything in which Williams provides the voice of a dog, which was never available in the United States. Thanks to Atlas Distribution Co., Absolutely Anything is finally coming to U.S. theaters later this month.

While the art of improvisation is most commonly associated with comedy, it’s a creative process that is used on movies of every kind. Sometimes improvisation happens during a table read and inspires something to be written into the script, other times it happens on set while the cameras are rolling. No matter how it happens, it has resulted in some classic moments in cinema.
Now a video attempts to pinpoint the Top 10 Improvised Scenes In Movie History. That’s a pretty tall order, and I can almost guarantee that once you watch the video after the jump, some of you are going to be upset, or will at least have some different opinions on how this list was put together.

For children of the 90s, there is a lot of love for Steven Spielberg’s fantasy sequel Hook. The 1990 film was a legacyquel more than 20 years before they became all the rage in Hollywood. As someone who grew up on the movie, I’ll be the first to admit that the film hasn’t aged well, has plenty of flaws, but still holds a special place in my heart. And that sense of nostalgia is even stronger for the kids lucky enough to star alongside Robin Williams in it as The Lost Boys of Neverland.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 25 years since Hook hit the big screen (or at least it will be this December), but in honor of the milestone anniversary, a company called 22 Vision (specializing in celebrating pop culture through viral content) rounded up all of The Lost Boys from Hook for a little reunion photoshoot, and it’s probably one of the coolest things you’ll see today.
