But Daniel can’t bear to be away from his children so long; so when Miranda decides to hire a housekeeper, Daniel alters the ad and answers it himself and pretends to be Mrs. Doubtfire, donning a disguise he becomes the new housekeeper.


  • This is a comedy drama that is great for the entire family, starring Robin Williams as a divorced husband Daniel Hillard who disguises himself as female housekeeper Mrs. Doubtfire to help tend the household for his ex-wife, who has custody over their children, so he could spend time with this three kids.

    The pace, acting, and character development fits the movie’s script very well, and the movie is as funny as it sounds. Who wouldn’t be charmed to see a divorced man dunning a wig, old lady clothes and a semi-high pitched voice to hide from his ex-wife so he could be with the people he loves the most – his children. Though comedy filled with some corny moments and slapstick humor, this film sends an important message of what it means to be a family.

    Overall, it is a pretty good film for some laughs and family time. In memory of Robin Williams…

  • I loved this movie and the cast!
