Mrs. Doubtfire

Mrs. Doubtfire

(1993)

She's a blessing in disguise.

After a bitter divorce, actor Daniel (Robin Williams) goes to the extreme lengths of disguising himself as an elderly, dotty female housekeeper to spend time with his kids held in custody by his former wife. From the director of Home Alone, this family comedy was a Golden Globe winner for Best Film (Musical or Comedy) and Best Actor for Williams.

  • Although overly sappy in places... this Robin Williams-in-drag vehicle provides the comic a slick surface for doing his shtick, within a story possessing broad family appeal. Full Review

  • Sit-com stuff, then, with laboured farcical interludes, and a mushy post-feminist sensibility. Funny notwithstanding. Full Review

  • The dress, the mask and Mrs. Doubtfire's gentility are inherently limiting, but nothing holds Mr. Williams back when he's on a roll. Full Review
