Reviews
Mine: Yuch! So we are supposed to feel sorry for Williams who has ignored his kids until he is told that he can't see them? At a number of points in this movie I really cringed. What the lead character does is not nice. His manipuation of his ex-wife is at times really unethical. Some really funny slapstick bits, but this left a really bad taste in my mouth. WAY too long.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Crowd-pleasing comedy (with serious overtones) about a free spirit whose wife divorces him after fourteen years; he can't bear being separated from his three kids, so he disguises himself as a dowdy British housekeeper (under an Oscar-winning makeup job) and gets himself hired to look after them. Williams is in peak form, and director Columbus keeps story and characters reasonably realistic in order to drive home a humanistic message. Based on the book Alias Madame Doubtfire by Anne Fine. Williams and his wife produced. Panavision.

Williams' character does not ignore his children, he is stopped from seeing them because he is different and does not fit into mom's tight mold. However, the movie is funny, enjoyable and touching. I enjoyed this one.

This lame attempt at humor is one of the all time worst movies. Extremely poor taste and pathetic acting. If you haven't seen it yet, then don't.
