MRS. DOUBTFIRE (Theatrical Release USA 1993)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Mrs. Doubtfire—a WOW! Robin Williams’ film—addresses, in a most forgiving way, divorce pain and healing through a completely fresh and unique story. Sally Fields perfectly completes Robin Williams' acting. Although Pierce Brosnan seems an odd casting choice for the part of the new man attempting to replace the displaced man, he overcomes that by playing his part well. This script, well written, serves perfect entertainment fare for a family watch. Great work for Director Chris Columbus (Adventures in Babysitting, Home Alone and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) for directing another fabulous film.
