A dream is born
20th Century Fox’s story begins in a tiny theater on New York’s Lower East Side. In 1904, fresh from Hungary, 25-year-old William Fox amazed audiences with his magical hand-cranked films. The beginnings were humble – folding chairs, a painted wall for a screen – but the desire to entertain and move people has been at the core of what 20th Century Fox has been doing ever since. By 1915 Fox’s five-cent movie shows were wildly popular and his single screen grew first into a chain of 25 theaters around New York City and then into a movie making business.
After Daniel Hillard (Robin Williams), an unemployed actor, loses custody of his three children to his ex-wife (Sally Field), he realizes that seeing his kids once a week just isn’t enough. So the crafty thespian dresses as 'Mrs. Doubtfire', an elderly British nanny with a sharp tongue and an endearing way with children, in order to be close to his kids in this bright, heartwarming comedy.

I am now 88 years old. My parents could not afford a "babysitter during the 1930 depression, so they sent me to the local movie houses, (which at that time was less than 25cents admission) for children under the age of 10.
(The movie theaters then opened as early as 9AM and I usually went home about 3PM.)
I was mesmerized by what I saw on the screen and I actually learned a lot from some of the life stories that I saw on the screen in those early days. At the age of 10 I also had my "favorite actor," who was Paul Muni.
Starting at that early age, I saw most of the greatest actors and also learned a great deal of "History" from what I saw on the screen. You can't say that today.
Recently I bought the "Mrs. Doubtfire". DVD and I have never seen a more mind-blowing GREATER actor as the late ROBIN WILLIAMS performance in "Mrs. Doubfire.
I have recently bought multiple (DVD) copies (from Amazon) of the extraordinary Robin Williams's performance in Mrs. Doubfire for lifetime gifts for as long as my remaining days.

It's a great blend of slapstick, comedy, heartfelt moments, touching scenes, and just downright hilarious lines that today are still classics. If this movie doesn't make you laugh, then you have no sense of humor. Period. That is how funny it is.
Also, the Behind the Seams Edition has TONS of deleted, extended and alternate scenes, along with hilarious outtakes! A couple deleted scenes are hilarious moments where Mrs Doubtfire gets back at the nosy neighbor next door by ruining her garden.
Another hilarious deleted scene includes her messing up the washer, flooding the floor, while on the phone with Sally Field. There's also a deleted scene of the fight between the two at home after the restaurant scene when Sally Field finds out Doubtfire is really Robin.
As I stated, if this movie doesn't make you laugh, you got NO sense of humor whatsoever. It is a brilliant film, one of the late Robin William's BEST.
The film captures the idea of “remarriage”, written extensively about by Stanley Cavell. Over time, I have interpreted “remarriage” as a couple who has been in a relationship with one another before, we know that they love each other and are “meant to be”, but in the present time, we do not know why they are meant to be or how they will realize they are. The film Crazy, Stupid, Love also focuses around a remarriage plot within the sub genre of divorce romantic comedy. Steve Carell and Julianne Moore’s character’s are going to get divorced, but each, throughout the film, grows to have new personality characteristics and traits that helps them to see that they do not want a divorce, but rather each other. Mrs.Doubtfire is similar to that film because both members of the relationship change, resulting in the the partner liking the other better for their new efforts and traits. The main difference in films is the of ambiguity in Mrs.Doubtfire of whether the main couple will get back together again. Mrs. Doubtfire is a critically acclaimed piece, but not for it’s ability to reinterpret and refreshed the romantic comedy genre. The next time you’re at home on a Saturday night and watch the film, you can tell your coworkers on Monday you watched a Rom Com over the weekend.
