This is yet another big classic from the 80's... Personally, I do like Robin Williams. I think he can be quite funny and it is a good thing that he tries from time to time another genre but, unfortunately, he is usually really irritating in these melodramatic movies...

DPS is as warm a film as an electric blanket, as rich as history and as likable as any wise old man with inspiring words. First off, I'm a sucker for inspiring movies and since I have recently taken an interest in poetry, connected with John Keating because we kinda share almost the same views on life. Now, DPS is either a really great flick with scenes that you just wanna rewind over and over or ... read more

Robin Williams stars as an English teacher who doesn't fit into the conservative prep school where he teaches, but whose charisma and love of poetry inspires several boys to revive a secret society with a bohemian bent.

My Overrated Films (16 movies items)

"I like Robin Williams and he was good in this movie. But the conservative Christian boarding school is portrayed as conformist, oppressive, and materialistic. It also promotes teen suicide and it's not portrayed in a largely negative light, either. Really, it's a terrible influence for adolescents. Suicide is not okay. There's absolutely no reason for people to throw their own lives away. Instead, they should seek help immediately, even if they are severely depressed."
