What is Mrs. Doubtfire about?
Mrs. Doubtfire was a hit in the 1993 American film directed by Chris Columbus (The Help, Gremlins, The Goonies, Harry Potter 1-2, Home Alone 1-2). The plot follows divorcee Daniel Hillard (originally played by Robin Williams), a freelance voice actor whose only crime is loving his children too much. After his estranged wife Miranda (Sally Field) finalises their divorce and gains sole custody of the kids, he is forced to find a steady job and a decent place to live if he ever wants to see them again.
After he finds out that Miranda is looking for a housekeeper and babysitter from a classified ad, he slightly alters the advert to kill his competition before using his voice acting talents to call her up and answer the ad as a series of undesirable applicants. But when he calls up Miranda as a nanny with a Scottish accent who goes by the name Mrs Euphegenia Doubtfire, Miranda is instantly impressed and inviters Mrs Doubtfire over for an interview.
Desperate to make a good impression, Daniel hires his brother Frank, a makeup artist, and Frank's partner Jack to create the perfect "old lady costume" complete with a prosthetic mask just like in the movies. Daniel is swiftly hired by Miranda and soon he's back in his children's lives, whether they realise it or not. But certainly, his little charade won't last forever...
