Additional Features

The special features on Mrs. Doubtfire (Behind-the-Seams Edition) are a real treasure trove for fans of the hit Chris Columbus film as well as longtime admirers of Robin Williams. Loads of backstage footage, archived interviews, and miscellaneous gems are packed onto the second of this two-disc set, giving viewers a strong sense of what it was like to film this touching comedy in an atmosphere of discovery and semi-improvisation. Beginning at the beginning, "From Man to Mrs.--The Evolution of Mrs. Doubtfire" tells the story of the movie's origins from British novel to a Robin Williams project, shepherded to the screen by Williams and his producer wife Marsha Garces Williams, and given its ultimate shape and heart by director Columbus. Everyone agrees that the pre-Columbus working script was too thin and too strained with a happy ending that got Williams' character and his estranged wife (Sally Field) back together. The soul of the story, Columbus says in an interview, is its painful tale of a divorce in which children and parents have to suffer the consequences of separation. Elsewhere, there is extensive discussion about makeup and how Mrs. Doubtfire's camouflaging personality actually liberated Williams by containing his sprawling sense of comic freedom. Still, there was plenty of room for Williams to cut loose from the script and make up scenes as he went along.

Disc two has lots of examples of Williams winging it, scene-by-scene, the best of his many takes ultimately finding their way into the official feature. (Anyone who loves seeing Williams turn every take into a new adventure will thoroughly enjoy this feature.) Another bonus is a nice chunk of material about legendary animator Chuck Jones' involvement in Mrs. Doubtfire, creating a new cat-and-bird cartoon combo at Columbus' behest. Photo galleries, an original and still watchable 1993 featurette about the production, sundry trailers, publicity stills and insights from Field, Columbus, Williams, and co-star Pierce Brosnan round out this DVD set's auxiliary offerings. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Daniel Hillard (Robin Williams) is no ordinary father, so when he learns his ex-wife (Sally Field) needs a housekeeper, he applies for the job. With the perfect wig, a little makeup and a dress for all occasions, he becomes Mrs. Doubtfire, a devoted British nanny who is hired on the spot. Free to be the "woman" he never knew he could be, the disguised Daniel creates a whole new life with his entire family.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Mrs. Doubtfire" (Widescreen Edition) = Lots Of Fun! November 9, 2004
Format:DVD
A first-rate cast and an innovative script helped make 1993's "Mrs. Doubtfire" a big movie hit. Robin Williams, Sally Field, and Pierce Brosnan display their individual and collective acting talents in "Doubtfire". I enjoyed each of their performances here. Brosnan's quiet, understated, and laid-back portrayal of "the other man" in Sally's life might often get overlooked in this film, but I think Brosnan's character plays very nicely against that of Mrs. Doubtfire.

But this film, of course, 'belongs' to Robin Williams. It's a veritable tour-de-force for Robin here, as he manages to juggle two different roles, seemingly with ease. A remarkable "two-for-the-price-of-one" performance. He literally "becomes" Mrs. Doubtfire when he dons that wardrobe and make-up.

And Sally Field, as always, is outstanding here. In a way, she has the rather thankless job of playing opposite the human twin-tornado (Robin) in this film. But Sally is able to shine through in her own right, in my view. She's always a treat to watch on the screen. And "Doubtfire" is no exception.

Sally went from co-starring in one blockbuster movie to yet another -- after wrapping up "Doubtfire", she next played Tom Hanks' mom in 1994's mega-hit (and "Best Picture" Oscar-winner), "Forrest Gump".

The "Mrs. Doubtfire" DVD brims over with special stuff. There are more than 30 minutes of "Deleted Scenes" on the disc, scenes that Director Chris Columbus was pretty much forced to cut out of the movie due to time constraints. Kind of a shame too, because nearly all of these deleted scenes are very good, and would not have been a detriment to the film at all, IMO.

By M. Hart
Format:DVD
In 1993, Chris Columbus directed one of the funniest films that Robin Williams has ever starred in: "Mrs. Doubtfire". Based upon the novel "Alias Madame Doubtfire" written by Anne Fine, Robin Williams plays the role of Daniel Hillard, a frequently unemployed actor who specializes in voice impersonations. He and his wife Miranda (Sally Field) have three children: Lydia (Lisa Jakub), Chris (Matthew Lawrence) and Natalie (Mara Wilson). With Miranda working as a highly successful designer, Daniel spends more time with the children than she can. After Miranda comes home to find her home in total disarray with an uproarious birthday party for Chris that includes petting-zoo animals, she completely loses her temper and tells Daniel that she wants a divorce. Daniel is dumbstruck and eventually loses custody of the children to Miranda in court, but wants desperately to spend more time with them than his visitation privileges allow. Upon learning that Miranda plans to hire a nanny to stay with the children when she's at work, Daniel decides to present himself as a potential nanny to Miranda. With the aid of his brother Frank (Harvey Fierstein), who is a makeup artist, and his brother's partner Jack (Scott Capurro), Daniel is transformed into a kindly old woman that he names Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire. Fooled by Daniel's disguise, Miranda hires Mrs. Doubtfire. The story heats up even more when Miranda is courted by an old friend, Stuart 'Stu' Dunmeyer (Pierce Brosnan).
The acting in the film, especially Sally Field and Robin Williams, is superb and the story is completely engaging. Memorable scenes in the film include Chris' birthday party, Daniel's first interview with the social worker Mrs.

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest movie around!! November 7, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is truly the funniest movie I have ever seen in my life! Robin Williams is hilarious as Daniel Hillard and Mrs. Doubtfire. His saucy performance makes this a classic that many people will watch again and again. Sally Field is also terrific, and the children (Lisa Jakub, Matthew Lawrence, and Mara Wilson) are all fantastic as well. This movie is constantly played over and over at my house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent comedy with Robin Williams February 16, 2003
Format:DVD
From the beginning, I was enchanted by this awesome comedic performance. Mrs. Doubtfire is about a man who gets divorced but really loves his kids, and goes to extremes to be with them. What does he doe? He pretends to be a maid by dressing up as an old lady. Robin does a great job of playing Mrs. Doubtfire, and changing roles.
I loved this movie. Robin Williams does a great job at playing two people. It's really amazing how he can switch voices (everything from Gandi to a Mafia thug to an old lady, Mrs. Doubtfire). It's really a hilarious movie, and although it's a little old, it's a classic. It was so funny and is suitable for both kids and adults. It's a little bit suggestive in some places (but usually the language is advanced too).
If you haven't seen this movie, then you should buy this DVD ASAP. You are missing out on Robin Williams at his best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie for the Whole Family November 29, 2004
By Erin R
Format:DVD
Mrs. Doubtfire is a comical film following the life of an actor, named Daniel, played by

Robin Williams. The audience enjoys in watching Daniel's quite amusing attempts at

getting his life back in order after loosing both his job and his marriage in the same day.

Excellently directed, Mrs. Doubtfire is the perfect combination of both humor and

heartache. Dealing with issues of a broken home, the movie allows many Americans to

relate to the lives of the characters.

The viewer watches as a father is torn away from his kids, whom he loves dearly. One can

not help but feel compassion for him as he struggles to find a way back into his children's

lives. Viewers will feel like they really know Daniel after watching him grow as both a

person and a father.

In desperation, Daniel takes on another identity in effort to spend more time with his

beloved children. One's stomach will split with laughter watching him jump from one

identity to the other in attempt to remain unidentified. The humor involved is clean, yet

hilarious. Something both kids and their parents can enjoy together.

Mrs. Doubtfire will grip one's heart and hold on tight, until the very end when tears of joy

will slowly well up in every eye. A perfect film for the whole family, Mrs. Doubtfire is

definitely worth one's time.
