The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them.
Eccentric actor Daniel Hillard is an amusing and caring father. But after a disastrous birthday party for his son, Chris, his wife, Miranda, draws the line and files a divorce. He can see their three children only once a week which doesn't sit well with him. He also holds a job at a TV studio as a shipping clerk under the recommendation of his liason. But when Miranda puts out an ad for a nanny, he takes it upon himself to make a disguise as a British lady named Mrs. Doubtfire. And he must also deal with Miranda's new boyfriend, Stu Dunemyer.Written by

There is not a restaurant in the world that has all the cooking spices on the waiter's side of the kitchen as shown when Mrs. Doubtfire put the hot pepper on Stu's dinner. Furthermore, one of the eight line cooks working would have seen Mrs. Doubtfire season a dish that was on the pass-thru and would have either said something or remade the dish.
NOTE: In a deleted scene, one of the cooks does catch Mrs. Doubtfire adding the pepper, so he/she pretends to be a high-profile Cajun chef visiting the restaurant and chides the cook for not adding the pepper. See more »

A movie that shows off Robin Williams' strengths as both a comedy star and a serious actor!
This is one of my favorite comedies and one of Robin Williams' best performances. I love how Robin Williams plays a woman convincingly without being over the top. This movie shows off a lot of his comedic skills and some of his serious acting chops. Robin Williams will always hold a special place in my heart as one of the greatest actors of all time and one of my biggest acting inspirations. Sally Field, Pierce Brosnan, and the child actors are also really great in this movie. The themes of divorce are handled very well. I wish Robin Williams was still around acting in movies. Rest In Peace, Sir!
