        The Original movie about Mr. Rogers , I watched on ITunes , A documentary ! The Real Mr. Rogers , not the Hollywood rip-off here 🤦🏻‍♀️ . It is probably pretty good but for this reason I just cant 🤷🏻‍♀️

          Whenever kid’s shows were on TV, my daughter would watch while playing and running around at the same time. One day when Mr Rogers came on, she stopped dead right in front of the screen, and stood still, watching until the end of the show. If you slow down, you can get their attention, and they will listen.

              I feel so sad seeing Tom Hanks with a full beard. Feels so strange. Can’t we go back to Forrest Gump days

                When Tom yelled oh my god at the beginning it sounded just like Woody from Toy Story!

                  Very wrong. Mr. Rogers is for all of us. Listen to what he saying about feelings and dealing with things. Adults forget.

                                  The jeopardy part, I couldn't tell them apart but I didn't know there was a movie coming out with him playing Mr Rogers! That's awesome!!

                                                Why a man who can stand the discomfort of a scratchy beard- but no wedding ring?! Strange, IMO

                                                  YouTube is getting too comfortable with all these damn commercials

                                                    Exactly. These commercials are growing like weeds. You understand that the option to skip will soon evaporate then the internet will be no better than TV ; 5 minutes of DWTS and then 8 minutes of denture adhisive and adult diaper commercials. Please, somebody put me out of my misery.

                                                    Time for Hollywood to pretend they like somebody. They ridiculed him for many years. Comedians built their careers making fun of him. I remember watching Jim Carrey do a skit where Mr. Rogers was at the porn store. I never laughed even then. It wasn't funny... Mr Rogers is a legend. Jim Carrey is an unhinged nutcase that is way past his prime.

                                                      Hearing Tom call Jimmy a "jaded talk show host" was so satisfying. I played that at bit at list 10 times.

                                                        Wow, demeaning talk show hosts for having humor and implying Jimmy uses illegal substances because he talks so fast. Made me dislike Tom a lot more.

                                                              Excellent point about perhaps why the Jeopardy contestants failed to recognize Tom Hanks, that he assimilates the roles he plays so consummately the viewer sees not the actor, but the character as real.
