The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them.
Eccentric actor Daniel Hillard is an amusing and caring father. But after a disastrous birthday party for his son, Daniel's wife Miranda draws the line and files a divorce. He can see his three children only once a week which doesn't sit well with him. Daniel also holds a job at a TV studio as a shipping clerk under the recommendation of his liason. But when Miranda puts out an ad for a housekeeper, Daniel takes it upon himself to make a disguise as a Scottish lady named Mrs Doubtfire. And Daniel must also deal with Miranda's new boyfriend Stu Dunemyer.Written by

It is obvious that Miranda never does a thorough background check on "Mrs. Doubtfire", even though Daniel does give her a fake resume'. Had she done so, she would have quickly discovered that something was off about "her", thereby arousing suspicion of this strange "woman" that she's welcoming into her home to watch her three under-aged children.

The Australian DVD was made using the cut UK version, meaning it has 13 seconds of dialogue cut despite no previous censorship problems. VHS, theatrical and television versions are all intact. See more »
A movie that shows off Robin Williams' strengths as both a comedy star and a serious actor!
This is one of my favorite comedies and one of Robin Williams' best performances. I love how Robin Williams plays a woman convincingly without being over the top. This movie shows off a lot of his comedic skills and some of his serious acting chops. Robin Williams will always hold a special place in my heart as one of the greatest actors of all time and one of my biggest acting inspirations. Sally Field, Pierce Brosnan, and the child actors are also really great in this movie. The themes of divorce are handled very well. I wish Robin Williams was still around acting in movies. Rest In Peace, Sir!
