Movie Reviews

Is it Wide Screen or Full Screen--That's the question!
Gregory E. Sanchez | Denver, CO USA | 10/26/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a delightful movie, one of Robin Williams's best. The concern I have, since the widescreen version has been out of print for some time now and the full screen version was only available as part of a set of comedy movies, none of which I wanted, is this version Widescreen or Full Screen? Neither the photo of the packaging, nor the technical information provided, give any indication of which version this is, and I won't waste my money on the full screen version of any movie that was presented in widescreen in the theaters."
You mean like Shelley Winters older or Shirley MacLaine old?

"In 1993, Chris Columbus directed one of the funniest films that Robin Williams has ever starred in: "Mrs. Doubtfire". Based upon the novel "Alias Madame Doubtfire" written by Anne Fine, Robin Williams plays the role of Daniel Hillard, a frequently unemployed actor who specializes in voice impersonations. He and his wife Miranda (Sally Field) have three children: Lydia (Lisa Jakub), Chris (Matthew Lawrence) and Natalie (Mara Wilson). With Miranda working as a highly successful designer, Daniel spends more time with the children than she can. After Miranda comes home to find her home in total disarray with an uproarious birthday party for Chris that includes petting-zoo animals, she completely loses her temper and tells Daniel that she wants a divorce. Daniel is dumbstruck and eventually loses custody of the children to Miranda in court, but wants desperately to spend more time with them than his visitation privileges allow. Upon learning that Miranda plans to hire a nanny to stay with the children when she's at work, Daniel decides to present himself as a potential nanny to Miranda. With the aid of his brother Frank (Harvey Fierstein), who is a makeup artist, and his brother's partner Jack (Scott Capurro), Daniel is transformed into a kindly old woman that he names Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire. Fooled by Daniel's disguise, Miranda hires Mrs. Doubtfire. The story heats up even more when Miranda is courted by an old friend, Stuart 'Stu' Dunmeyer (Pierce Brosnan).The acting in the film, especially Sally Field and Robin Williams, is superb and the story is completely engaging. Memorable scenes in the film include Chris' birthday party, Daniel's first interview with the social worker Mrs. Sellner (Anne Haney), Daniel getting a regular job, Daniel's various impersonations over the telephone, Frank & Jack testing various disguises on Daniel, Mrs. Doubtfire cooking her first dinner, Mrs. Sellner's visit to Daniel's apartment, the country club, and the restaurant. Other very memorable characters in the film include Jonathan Lundy (Robert Prosky), the bus driver (Sydney Walker), Mr. Sprinkles (William Newman), and Daniel's boss at the TV station (Joe Bellan).If you enjoy films such as "Tootsie" (1982) and "Some Like It Hot" (1959), you're sure to enjoy "Mrs. Doubtfire". Overall, I rate "Mrs. Doubtfire" with 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy a funny and engaging comedy."
Great Movie for the Whole Family

"Mrs. Doubtfire is a comical film following the life of an actor, named Daniel, played by
Robin Williams. The audience enjoys in watching Daniel's quite amusing attempts at
getting his life back in order after loosing both his job and his marriage in the same day.

Excellently directed, Mrs. Doubtfire is the perfect combination of both humor and
heartache. Dealing with issues of a broken home, the movie allows many Americans to
relate to the lives of the characters.

The viewer watches as a father is torn away from his kids, whom he loves dearly. One can
not help but feel compassion for him as he struggles to find a way back into his children's
lives. Viewers will feel like they really know Daniel after watching him grow as both a
person and a father.

In desperation, Daniel takes on another identity in effort to spend more time with his
beloved children. One's stomach will split with laughter watching him jump from one
identity to the other in attempt to remain unidentified. The humor involved is clean, yet
hilarious. Something both kids and their parents can enjoy together.

Mrs. Doubtfire will grip one's heart and hold on tight, until the very end when tears of joy
will slowly well up in every eye. A perfect film for the whole family, Mrs. Doubtfire is
definitely worth one's time."
The funniest movie around!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is truly the funniest movie I have ever seen in my life! Robin Williams is hilarious as Daniel Hillard and Mrs. Doubtfire. His saucy performance makes this a classic that many people will watch again and again. Sally Field is also terrific, and the children (Lisa Jakub, Matthew Lawrence, and Mara Wilson) are all fantastic as well. This movie is constantly played over and over at my house."
