Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)
Critic Consensus: On paper, Mrs. Doubtfire might seem excessively broad or sentimental, but Robin Williams shines so brightly in the title role that the end result is difficult to resist.

News & Interviews for Mrs. Doubtfire
Critic Reviews for Mrs. Doubtfire
Although overly sappy in places and probably 20 minutes too long, this Robin Williams-in-drag vehicle provides the comic a slick surface for doing his shtick, within a story possessing broad family appeal.
Sit-com stuff, then, with laboured farcical interludes, and a mushy post-feminist sensibility. Funny notwithstanding.
The dress, the mask and Mrs. Doubtfire's gentility are inherently limiting, but nothing holds Mr. Williams back when he's on a roll.
The film is not as amusing as the premise, and there were long stretches when I'd had quite enough of Mrs. Doubtfire.
Audience Reviews for Mrs. Doubtfire
Classic Robin Williams at his manically schticky and emotionally naked best.
Only The late Robin Williams has ever been able to pull off being a woman! An overrated movie but it holds genuine emotion and comedy to be family gold!
No doubt about it - Robin Williams is brilliant!
