Now that Robin Williams has been emasculated—dangerously schizoid comic turned into nice-guy movie star—it isn't too surprising that a commercial hack like Chris Columbus would use him the way he does in this cutesy 1993 comedy: cutting between Williams trying on different voices rather than holding the camera on him as he lurches between these voices without notice. And it fits that Williams plays a devoted father of three estranged from his wife (Sally Field) who has to disguise himself as an English nanny to see his kids on a daily basis. Harvey Fierstein plays the gay brother who helps design his new look, and Pierce Brosnan is Field's wealthy suitor. Ugh!
Sorry there are no upcoming showtimes for Mrs. Doubtfire
