A deeply unsettling film that cynically attempts to make the audience SYMPATHIZE with a man who would so crassly deceive his own children, betray their trust, and invade their privacy... all while absurdly disguised as an elderly British nanny. The premise is utter bullshit in every possible way. In fact, "Mrs. Doubtfire" is often cited by Islamic terrorists as their primary incentive for attacking the United States.

A lot of people hate this movie but I will give it some points due to Williams all out gusto in what is actually kind of a difficult role. Some parts are really disturbing. Essentially Robin Williams is insane (shocker) and loses custody of his kids for being an irresponsible unemployed weirdo. To combat this image, he naturally begins crossdressing as an old woman, and is hired to nanny to his own children. Cut and print.

Love this movie! Hilarious, but also touching--and very interesting given the time period as I believe it was one of the first mainstream movies to focus on the affects of divorce in a family. Robin Williams makes a great "woman" (see also Dustin Hoffman in "Tootsie"--another good comedy!)

Robin Williams is hilarious in this. An excellent showcase of the dying art of physical comedy. Some people on Criticker seem to think this movie is "creepy" or "condescending". You've got to be kidding me. I think they're missing "the point". My favorite part was the run-by fruiting!

For an entire generation of people this is an iconic, kid friendly comedy. While there have been funnier movies, I don't think anyone will argue that for being a comedian, Robin Williams starred in far too few pure comedies, so cherish the ones we have.

I'm sure it's hokey and mediocre, and I believe everyone who says so without reservation. But to hell with it, because I laughed until I pissed when I saw this when I was 8! "He's a she! She's a he! He's a she-he!" I'll stick with my fond memories rather than acknowledge reality.

This movie is the definition of bad. How anyone finds it funny or appealing in any way is beyond me. I once had a nightmare that Robin Williams dressed as Mrs. Doubtfire was trying to kill me. It still wasn't as horrifying as this movie though.

This is Robin Williams at his comedic best. He proves himself to be an incredibly flexible and talented actor, and though Mrs. Doubtfire never really puts him to the test, it is a monumentally enjoyable family comedy. Really good!

My favorite jokes in this are the ones about how Robin Williams' accent shtick isn't funny. Despite this, he's oddly lovable in the role. I think that's a microcosm of the film as a whole: oddly lovable, not at all good.

I loved this movie's beginning with the cartoon, I was 10 years old when I saw this and was like "yey, cartoon" the it puls out of the frame and suddenly I see a hairy comedian doing the voice, this was the first time I saw where the voices comes from in the cartoon and was chocked, my magic for movies was gone. I saw a adult man dressing like a women to get a job as a housekeeper to be with his children - desperate?. Nah I loved it and I think its one of the best movie from my childhood

RIP Robin Williams - Enjoyable family comedy makes too many 'cute' missteps, and suffers from a premise which stretches credibility as presented, but is still made worthwhile in fits and starts for Williams the brilliant comedic improviser; while Williams' Doubtfire lacks the personality of Hoffman's Tootsie, many funny lines and situations abound (especially whenever Brosnan's fine turn as hapless straight man is on screen). Conclusion is the most convincing aspect, and remains quietly moving.

An interesting turn for Robin Williams at this point in his career, attempting to be both funny and heartfelt at the same time. Not entirely successful, but definitely memorable.

Well I can say in its favor I did enjoy it originally as a kid, and a few of William's improvs are funny. On the other hand, it's creepy and hard to watch. It's a bit disconcerting to have such a nice and positive message about family and diversity after two hours of puerile, homophobic and transphobic jokes. No thanks.

So many gender issues here. The weirdness where Divorce Is Bad and Sally Field is a Bad Parent for doing it even though Robin Williams's character really is being a destabilizing presence in his children's lives, the fact that "The Mrs. Doubtfire Character" is played by a man in his 40s instead of an actual elderly female actor who needs the work, the transphobia... yeesh. Robin Williams is the same warm presence he always is, and occasionally manages to sell the concept, but oy.

This only works as a piece of nostalgia, because oooh boy. I realize I am treading on well-worn ground, but the central conceit of this film is insane. Besides that, I am not sure how much there is actually to like about this. Depends on how funny you find Robin Williams dressing up like an old lady.

Mrs. Doubtfire may be an odd story with questionable outcomes. But what Robin Williams does with this character is extraordinary. Anybody else would have made this a deeply unsettling experience. But Robin Williams brings such warmth & charm to a completely bizarre series of events. Whilst Sally Field importantly keeps the story somewhere close to the ground. I still watch and laugh at this film through the eyes of a child. And it's the naivety of a child that allows me to see past the flaws.

Considering the subject, Mrs. Doubtfire is particularly regressive when it comes to gender roles or sexuality. All women are villains, the homosexuals are freakish caricatures and no sane man would ever dress as a woman unless there's a brilliant plan involved. The movie itself is not very revolutionary either, and after the surprisingly tight beginning, Chris Columbus' obsessive tugging of emotional strings hardly leaves room for an actual movie.

Cornball stuff that is essentially a rehash of the much superior Tootsie in a lot of ways. Robin Williams is a good actor though and he manages to carry this far enough that it's not totally stupid. The "father will do anything to get his estranged kids back" angle was played out even for the early 90's though. It's still filled with insipid dialog and not nearly clever enough to be called good.

Robin Williams begins his insufferable phase of combining grating, frequently clichéd comic mugging with mawkish, please-won't-someone-love-me tenderhearted family-oriented bullshit. Still, it's better than Patch Adams.

My issue is that Williams is playing a truly awful man who behaves abominably from minute one and routinely blames other people when bad things happen. The original court decision to give him only visitation rights until he establishes a home and a job (!!!) is pretty fucking reasonable, but somehow the profound observation that he loves his children (as if this is an uncommon situation) licenses him to fundamentally abuse his wife's trust.

I've watched this film more times than I really should have, and for what reason I don't know as it is an average film at best (quite possibly a 'bad' film). I'll blame my more youthful self for this indiscretion. Having said that, Williams does the cross-dressing scenario quite well.

I don't remember if I watched this as a kid, I somehow remember it, but it might be getting bombarded by its ADs in multiple movies too... Watched it with my daughter (LIFE-SAVING Alert: You should stay away from this movie if there are any divorce vibes in your family. Can induce FUD in pre-adolescents). It is much more gooey than I thought it was; the make-up part was cool and it has few good sequences; but it didn't appeal to me much (Calm down honey, we are not divorcing).

I have a lot of respect for Mrs Doubtfire, mainly because of the mature way it handles the divorce that makes up the plot and how it follows it through to a natural, thoughtful conclusion without copping out as so many lesser movies would. Plus, this is probably Robin Williams' best comedic performance.

There is no doubt that Robin Williams has a fiery personality. His ability to change his voice makes him a living cartoon. This may not be one of the best films in the world but it has a lot of heart and a lot of laughs. The whole cast is pretty good too with the smarmy Pierce Brosnan and the angry wife Sally Field (she's about as likable in real life as she is in this film)...
