I absolutely love all TV movies that attempt to tell the story of real life celebrities. They are filled with horrible impersonations, overacting and a level of horribleness that just makes my heart soar with undiluted happiness. In fact, I often pray to the TV gods that there will come a day when that glorious time-suck Netflix collects all of these types of movies under the banner “Got Two Hours To Kill?” so that I never have to leave my house ever again.
And this offering, Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Mork and Mindy, does not disappoint. The movie attempts to give the viewer an inside look at how the sitcom Mork and Mindy made Robin Williams into a star (while leaving poor Pam Dawber behind).
It’s a crazy terrible movie that is as wonderful as you hope it is.
It stars Chris Diamantopoulos (The Office) as Robin Williams and Erinn Hayes (Guys With Kids) as Pam Dawber.
Watch it after the break.
