The Best of Times: Directed by Roger Spottiswoode. With Robin Williams, Kurt Russell, Pamela Reed, Holly Palance. A small-town loser determines to have one more shot at the big time by winning a football game.
Released in 1986, this was well before I was tracking Robin WIlliams, as I was only six at the time, so not really too much to explain there, especially since this is a mostly forgettable film with plenty of people that were famous previously or become much more famous after The Best of Times. It’s a perfectly cromulent film and I don’t have any major complaints, but there isn’t much to it that really screams “yeah this is a great film”.
If you want to see Robin Williams or Kurt Russell at their most average, this is the one.
