Williams is great, as almost always, but this movie, while it holds up well over time, has never struck me as the classic it is considered by reviewers. Aside from Williams, the rest of the movie is fairly weak.

Really wonderful movie. Robin Williams was wonderful in this and so were all the young teenage boys in his class. The story was interesting, honest and sad.

How many years later and this movie still stands up. A classic I showed my kids.

This was a very good movie that taught how teachers influence students be it for the good or bad and how parents can sometimes expect something from their child that is unjust.
As adults we should always remember that every person is an individual and no one has the right to live their life vicariously through another human being.

Even when he was acting creepy, like in ''One Hour Photo'', Robin Williams could always make me smile, so right now I am going to try and remember that, even though this great talent's life just ended in a way which echoes this films final punchline. You will be missed - ''Captain my Captain''...

One of the best movies ever:) it really portrays how to deal with life and how to stand up for yourself, an excellent movie that I still think is underrated...

John Keating: O Captain, my Captain. Who knows where that comes from? Anybody? Not a clue? It's from a poem by Walt Whitman about Mr. Abraham Lincoln. Now in this class you can either call me Mr. Keating, or if you're slightly more daring, O Captain my Captain.
