Movie Review: ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’s’ laughter lasts decades

Skylar Longsine, Reporter

 The iconic movie “Mrs. Doubtfire” has left its audience laughing and feeling warm-hearted since 1993. 

The movie is about a couple that gets divorced leaving a loving father with many challenges, such as fighting the court system to have the right to be able to see his kids. 

Robin Williams played the lead male role, and Sally Field was the lead female role. The film takes place in Chicago 1993. 

All of the twists and turns throughout the movie either leave fans laughing or are teaching you a life lesson; either way boredom is never an option during this emotional roller coaster.  

Even though it is WIlliams playing the role it gets a little hard to visually see this. A responsibility of being the character Mrs. Doubtfire was he was required to dress up as an elderly women. He went as far as wearing a full body suite, giving him a womanly figure.

Everything about the movie is captivating from the skills of the talented actors and actresses to the script, never leaving a dull moment. 

Williams used several different voices throughout the movie. He also went from a man that could not cook, clean, or discipline his kids, to a woman that did all of those responsibilities.   

 A line within the movie that best shows how Mrs. Doubtfire is a humorous and wise woman, is when she says, “I admire that honesty, Natalie, that’s a noble quality. Never lose that, because it often disappears with age, or entering politics.” All throughout this film watchers will encounter humor similar to this. 

Mrs. Doubtfire is a must watch, the only downside to this movie is it may not be meant for all ages, due to some of the adult humor seen throughout the movie. 

This sitcom will forever play a role in Robinson William’s legacy. 

“Mrs. Doubtfire” is a perfect movie to watch over and over again when our moods need to be lifted. 

Overall rating 5/5
