A hilarious film starring the late Robin Willams

Mrs Doubtfire is a 1993 comedy drama starring the late Robin Williams and tells the story about a failed voice actor named Daniel Hillard who is on the verge of a divorce with his overbearing wife Miranda(played by Sally Field)who has had it with Daniel as he threw a party for his son Chris(Matthew Lawrence)that went horribly wrong. Of course when Daniel goes to court the judge files an order for Daniel where he can only see his kids on Saturdays for a couple of hours. Heartbroken Daniel ends up changing his ex wife's housekeeping ad so he can use his voice acting skills to the test. Of course he ends up disguising himself as a 60 year old Scottish nanny dubbed Mrs Doubtfire. The disguise is so good his wife has no idea that Mrs Doubtfire is Daniel wearing a mask and a body suit.

His disguise allows him to see his kids even more and he later ends up getting jealous as his ex wife is seeing Stu(played by Pierce Brosonan). Although Daniel can see his kids now everyday,how long can he keep up with the fascade.

I took along break from this film till about a few years later as at first I thought it was purely stupid having Robin Williams in drag, But when I seen it again after 10 long years I ended up finding it to be a very endearing hilarious film. Both myself,my mom and my granny all love this film as we were laughing so hard with Williams getting his face covered in cake,him switching places during the climax scene and so much more hilarious moments. I ended up shedding a few tears in the end as I hadn't seen it since Williams death.

Overall I will forever miss Mr Robin Williams as he was a remarkable man with a heart of gold a childlike persona.

You will forever be missed Mr Williams.

Also I have to admit the special make up effects to create Mrs Doubtfire was brilliant you wouldn't think that Williams was Mrs Doubtfire all along.

8/10 B+

Mrs. Doubtfire review

Mrs. Doubtfire is a film directed by Chris Columbus. I came to know of this film because of its Indian remake Chachi 420, which I loved by the way. But after seeing this film I can say that this one surpasses the Indian version.

Plot: Daniel who is going through a divorce with his wife Miranda decides to dress up as a nanny as an excuse to meet his children.

Story and direction: This film very quickly introduces us to Daniel and his life. We see Daniel quite concerned about the kind of shows he does voice work for. Which was a brilliant way to comment on what is actually being sown on TV to kids. After that we see how much he loves his kids and how he is ready just to make them happy. This love is kept constant throughout the entire film. Never a single moment is there, where you feel this love is less. Same can also be said for the kids, wherein they miss their Dad a lot. Miranda's character also draws an instant connection as she being a working other who can't give time to her children. You can see that she wants to spend time with the children but due to her work she can't give time. The film also explores how creative Daniel is with the dinosaur act he does and the channel executive wanting him to do a show. Stuart Dunmayer was a great addition to this film. His character to adds some spice to this comedy-drama. The ending may have got many disappointed as it wasn't the kind anyone expects in this kind of film. I would say that I liked the ending as it was something different and remainedtrue to the father-children relation shown. The make up deserves an applause. I mean every time Daniel appears as Mrs. Doubtfire it was as if I was seeing an actual 60 year old woman. No wonder it got an Oscar for the makeup category. The only issue I felt was with the angle of children and Stuart Dunmayer. The film didn't show that the children are either happy or sad of Stuart's presence. I would have been happy if they would have addressed that in the film.

Peerformances: Robin Williams is everytime missed. He did great in the dual roles of Daniel Hillard and Mrs. Doubtfire. I also think he perfected the English accent. Sally Field was also great in her role.Pierce Brosnan was also good as Staurt Dunmayer. He did justice to what was given to him. Roberty Pronsky was also good as Lundy. All the 3 kids also looked very genuine in their performances.

Favorite Scene: The scene where Daniel and the court liason meet in Daniel's home and Daniel says Mrs. Doubtfire is her elder step-sister. I was laughing out loud in that scene. Also the acting prowess of Robin Williams was clearly seen in this scene.

Verdict: I enjoyed this film and if you want to see Robin Williams in his best, this is the perfect film.

I am goung to go with a 9/10.

The best Robin Williams!

I remember seeing this movie in the theaters and I enjoyed it. I had no idea what to expect, but it entertained me. This, along with Aladdin, is one of Robin's best movies. I've met some people who didn't care for it, but to me this movie is touching and funny. What's not to like? Some say it's a poor man's Tootsie, but it works just as well as Some Like It Hot; maybe even a little better because it's more family-oriented. But if you want a good movie that deals with divorce, has an interesting plot and some good actors and actresses, and takes place in one of America's most celebrated cities, this is just what the doctor ordered!
