Ranking Robin Williams' Best and Worst Movies

Whether you admire his hairy arms or you moved here because of Mrs. Doubtfire, everyone has a soft spot for Robin Williams. 

Last week, local investigative unit Mother Jones—the folks who first outed Romney's 47% quote—took a break from their very serious lives to rank all of Jim Carrey's movies. After our initial relief that Liar Liar was indeed number one (and our dismay that Pet Detective ranked so low), we were inspired. 

So, in honor of San Francisco's very own funny man, here are Robin Williams' best and worst movies, ranked. Sorry, we're not sorry.
