Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.
With 254,729 views on Sunday, 03 December 2017 our article of the day is Mrs. Doubtfire.
Mrs. Doubtfire is a 1993 comedy-drama film directed by Chris Columbus and written for the screen by Randi Mayem Singer and Leslie Dixon, based on the novel Alias Madame Doubtfire by Anne Fine. It stars Robin Williams (who also served as a co-producer), Sally Field, Pierce Brosnan, Harvey Fierstein, and Robert Prosky. It follows a recently divorced actor who dresses up as a female housekeeper to be able to interact with his children. The film addresses themes of divorce, separation and the effect it has on a family.
The film was released in the United States on November 24, 1993. It won the Academy Award for Best Makeup and the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. Robin Williams was awarded the Golden Globe for Best Actor.
Although the film received mixed reviews during its original theatrical run, more recent reviews have been much more positive: the film placed 67th in the American Film Institute's 100 Years, 100 Laughs: America's Funniest Movies and 40th on Bravo's "100 Funniest Movies of All Time." The original music score was composed by Howard Shore.
