Review
MRS. DOUBTFIRE is a pretty humorous movie that will keep audiences laughing when they see that Robin Williams is dressed up as an old lady in drag. I loved the funny parts where the kids see Daniel dresses up, then he drops the face mask into the ground and it gets run over by the truck and the other part where Daniel has trouble cooking and gets his woman-shirt on fire.

No wonder that Pierce Brosnan played a supporting role in this movie, but it has been a great effort from Williams and Chris Columbus.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
