  • Overview
  • Details
  • Cast
Loving but irresponsible dad Daniel Hillard (Robin Williams), estranged from his exasperated spouse (Sally Field), is crushed by a court order allowing only weekly visits with his kids. When Daniel learns his ex needs a housekeeper, he gets the job -- disguised as an English nanny. Soon he becomes not only his children's best pal but the kind of parent he should have been from the start. Not surprisingly, the film won an Oscar for Best Makeup.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that as funny as Mrs. Doubtfire is, it's really about the pain of separation and divorce. Serious issues such as the perception that Daniel is a bad father because he doesn't make a lot of money, and the implied criticism of careerist mother, Miranda, are buried under a lot of padding and jokes. Kids whose families are going through divorce might find this painful in spots (particularly the separations as seen from the parental perspective). Kids who fear separation should not see this until they feel safe and secure. But some kids may find the movie helpful because it lessens feelings of being alone or unique. Expect strong language (including "s--t" and one "f--k") and some drinking.

Sexual Content

Quizzing of a mother's sex life. Humor related to Daniel/Mrs. Doubtfire's disguise.

Violence

Brief bullying; arguments.

Language

Language includes one "f--k," plus "s--t," "bastard," "hell," "damn," "a--hole," "goddamn," and some sexually themed language. A middle-finger gesture.

Social Behavior

Issues of divorce and separation are dealt with carefully. Although there's some implied criticism of a career mom and a deadbeat dad, ultimately this movie celebrates family bonds and loving parents and children.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some drinking, close to inebriation.
