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
One of the make-up attempts winds up looking more like an old Jewish woman. Robin Williams improvised on this for a moment, then Williams, Harvey Fierstein, and Scott Capurro sing the chorus of "Matchmaker" from Fiddler On The Roof (1971). Fierstein has starred in "Fiddler" in two different Broadway revivals. See more »
A catapulting device used to force the styrofoam head to cause Mrs. Doubtfire's mask to fall off into the alley is visible at the base of the head. See more »

When aired on Fox Family, all profanities were cut out, including words like Hell and Damn; however the scene where Daniel imitates Porky Pig and tells Lou to piss off is still intact. See more »
Many people say that Mrs Doubtfire is one of the funniest movies ever made in the U.S. I agree with the above idea. I think Robin Williams is one of the best comedians in the world. His performance in this movie is perfect and gives us a lot of laugh. There are also some impressive scenes in which performance of the three kid actors really shine.
In addition, the storyline is easy to understand and is for everybody. It is a heart-warming movie which gives us a lot of laugh and tear. Through this movie, we can learn the divorce situation in the U.S. We can also recognize the importance of family bonds.
Persdonally, it is a little regrettable that the story does not have a happy ending. I wish they could together happily again.
This is a very funny comedy but it also help us grow. I want to see Mrs. Doubtfire repeatedly in my life.
