      Mrs. Doubtfire

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      On paper, Mrs. Doubtfire might seem excessively broad or sentimental, but Robin Williams shines so brightly in the title role that the end result is difficult to resist.

      Mike P Very solid drag comedy from Robin Williams and company. He and Sally Field get separated; forcing him to don drag and pretend he's a dottering Scottish Nanny so he can see his kids everyday...It's no Tootsie; but it is very fun and effective. 👍 Recommended Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/10/24 Full Review Audience Member Just watched this again here in 2024 and it really holds up. This and “Good Morning, Vietnam” were the two best film vehicles for Robin Williams to showcase his comedic genius. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Matt09 H One of the best films ever it has fantastic comedy elements to it aswell as educational elements to raise awareness about divorce and brings great comfort to families who have already gone through divorce and brings a magical element to it aswell. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/21/24 Full Review Raincloud M I give 1 star for the true sadness I've felt as a person who doesn't get sad over movies, another for the slightly crude humor and old timey way of movie making where people didn't get fired and ruined for doing simple things. The last 2 and a half stars are all for robin williams. I still quote the "I can't live without air and I can't live without them" line. Beautiful movie, and all I'm saying is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart happened a long long time ago and we don't bash him because rock and roll now exists. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/24 Full Review Emily C OMG, this movie is absolutely amazing, the acting, the story, and its funny. And watching it is so satisfying, idk why! One problem is that what the farther has done can't be so bad that he has to visit his children once a week or something Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/28/23 Full Review Michelle M Great movie with Robin Williams and Sally Field! If you want a good laugh I highly recommend this heartwarming movie for the whole family! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      David Denby New York Magazine/Vulture Much of it feels synthetic and crude, more the result of engineering than inspiration. The [filmmakers] put a commercial glaze on everything, as if a future TV series were taking over the movie even as it was unreeling in the projector. Sep 22, 2022 Full Review Bill Cosford Miami Herald You can't take Mrs. Doubtfire seriously for a moment, its daddy-track sympathies notwithstanding, and you'll know exactly where it's going at every turn. You'll laugh, though Robin Williams will not be denied, Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 18, 2021 Full Review Duane Byrge Hollywood Reporter This comedy's warm and soothing nature will give mainstream audiences in these dysfunctional-family times a perfect holiday uplift. Dec 6, 2019 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins A somewhat grotesque take on Mary Poppins, this picture has an attitude and style all its own. Rated: 10/10 Sep 16, 2020 Full Review Grant Watson Fiction Machine Anybody tempted by nostalgia should stay away to preserve the illusion that this was once so well-liked. Rated: 2/10 Apr 21, 2020 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures The greater story is sacrificed for schticky gags about a guy dressing as an old woman. Rated: 3/5 Aug 17, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews
