You must have a good sense of humour.

When I first watched Mrs Doubtfire witch was al very long time ago, I very liked it and thought how funny it was, but this time I don’t know if it’s my age ( seventy nine today ), or my sense of humour has changed altogether, I didn’t find it a bit funny and thought is was rubbish. But don’t stop watching it because of me I have a completely different sense of humour now, but think it is more for younger people. Hope this is helpful, because there is bound to be people out the that will find it hilarious. Christine Mclaren.

Mrs doubtfire was the very first film that I watched. I was 6 years old at the time when the film came out in 1993. It’s a classic film that I have watched over 50 times. This will never get old.
I have purchased the 4K version of the film on Amazon Prime Video and it’s stunning.
I watch it on my PlayStation 5 console. The PS5 supports 4K resolution.

Mrs. Doubtfire is directed by Chris Columbus and adapted to screenplay by Randi Mayem Singer and Leslie Dixon from the novel Alias Madame Doubtfire written by Anne Fine. It stars Robin Williams, Sally Field, Lisa Jakub, Matthew Lawrence, Mara Wilson, Pierce Brosnan and Harvey Fierstein. Music is by Howard Shore and cinematography by Donald McAlpine.

Robin Williams plays Daniel Hillard, a struggling out of work actor who when faced with divorce from Miranda (Field) and separation from his three children, disguises himself as an old female housekeeper in order to see them daily.

Centrally as a film it is what it is, a chance for Williams (excellent) to dress up in drag and act the goof, but boy does he do it well. In the mix is the serious aspects involving the pain of imminent divorce and separation from one's children. The script is sharp and ready made for Williams' brand of cynical witticisms, while not painting Brosnan's Stuart Dunmire (the new man in Miranda's life) as an oily snake shows good sense in the writing. The child actors are engaging and never sickly, while Fierstein as Daniel's artistic eccentric brother is gloriously colourful.

A real family crowd pleaser that turned a profit of over $400 million at the worldwide box office, it's not a film that pushes boundaries of "drag" comedy, and you don't have to dig too far for flaws. But this is often very funny and it hits the right emotional beats for the topic at hand. 8/10

If ever there was a man who couldn't fool you that were a woman, the hairy, masculine Robin Williams is it. But he plays the title role brilliantly. His accent though they say it is British is of course Scottish and not from England as portrayed, is impeccable. This is a very funny film with lots of laugh out loud moments especially when his false face gets run over by a truck and when he gets muddled up and sits at the wrong table in the restaurant. Also very sad that he has to resort to such measures to just get to see his kids. the kids are all great actors. If you want a good belly laugh see this film.

I have watched this film countless times, and I still laugh at all the one liners from Robin Williams he was so talented. I was introduced to the film back in the mid 90s when my cousin had it on VHS and kept rewinding all the funny moments -all 3 of my kids now love this film too! It does not get old. This is a must have to your dvd collection.

What a wonderful family film!
Verified purchase
Of course, kids whose families are going through divorce might find this painful in some parts. But some kids may find the movie helpful because it lessens feelings of being alone or unique. Parents need to know that as funny as this movie is, it's really about the pain of separation and divorce. Serious issues such as the perception that Daniel is a bad father because he doesn't make a lot of money, and the implied criticism of careerist mother, Miranda, are buried under a lot of padding and jokes and voice impersonations.
This movie is so different from other movies regarding divorce in the manner in which it deals with real human problems. Though it provides a basis for a comedy, the issue of divorce and custody is treated seriously. Irresponsible Daniel grows from the experience of looking at the world from a woman's point of view. Recommend it!
