Mrs. Doubtfire

Mrs. Doubtfire

Loving but irresponsible dad Daniel Hillard, estranged from his exasperated spouse, 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.

Daniel Hillard is an eccentric actor who specializes in dubbing voices for cartoon characters. Daniel is a kind man and a loving father to his three kids Lydia, Chris, and Natalie, but Daniel's wife Miranda sees him as a poor disciplinarian, and a bad role model. After Daniel throws an elaborate and disastrous birthday party for Chris, Miranda reaches the end of her limited patience, and files for a divorce. Daniel is heartbroken when Miranda is given custody of the kids and he's only allowed to visit them once a week. Determined to stay in contact with his kids, Daniel discovers that Miranda is looking for a housekeeper, and with help from his brother Frank, a makeup artist, Daniel gets the job, disguised as Mrs. Iphegenia Doubtfire, a British nanny. Daniel pulls off the ruse so well that neither Miranda nor his children recognize him, and in the process, he learns some parenting tips. Daniel also has to deal with Miranda's new boyfriend, a jerk named Stu Dunmeyer. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Sarah H (de) wrote: It's not at all special allthough it is fairly funny. If you follow the same formula though, you always get the same result and that's pretty much what you have here. Like most movies about school it's not at all what I remember kids would have acted like, they were a lot meaner at times and also a lot more forgiving. At least it was funny at times and Ryan Reynolds isn't hard on the eyes.

Jenna I (ca) wrote: Gallo certainly has a strong voice and a strong style. He knows his character intimately well-- a weak-willed loser with an unfortunate childhood and a lifetime of insecurity. Unfortunately Ricci's character doesn't get the same service and her lack of depth really takes away from the experience. Ultimately the movies comes off as a narcissistic endeavor, though at the same time that's the type of guy Billy is anyhow so it works well enough.

Scott R (es) wrote: I enjoyed it mainly for its history, music and drama. Although these elements were there, it still lacked anything to draw me to their characters or identify with them. Most themes addressed were so oddly portrayed by an American playing Gordon with a poor accent (he was good despite this (especially his costumes) and the Mahdi was played by an Englishman. Had the themes of religious fanaticism and just colonial rule been played up stronger I think it would have been more memorable.

Jesse O (br) wrote: We go from one extreme of the horror/romance genre with Spring to the other with Life after Beth. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad in the conventional sense. I think the cast is definitely solid enough to elevate the shallow script past to what you end up seeing on screen. Though, honestly, it's not like that's much to begin with. There's just too much working against them for this film to be good. Honestly, I like the concept. It's not that it's something that's really that unique to begin with, but I think you could've done far more with it than they did here. Essentially, the film boils down to, at first, to keeping Beth's death a secret from her, even as her skin starts to deteriorate and she starts behaving strangely. That's like a third of the film and it gets really repetitive after a while. They get some chuckles out of the situation, but not nearly enough. Then Beth finds out she's a zombie as her behavior becomes increasingly more erratic and aggressive. Aubrey Plaza is great in this movie, and she makes this transformation work, but the scripting, again, is one-note. Then, inexplicably, the third act of the film is the zombie apocalypse. It makes no sense whatsoever. They definitely do tease that something is wrong, since Zach keeps seeing people that he hasn't seen in ages, but they don't even ease into it gradually. It's just like 'the zombie apocalypse is now and that's the way it is'. It's a jarring tonal shift that's just really poorly fucking written. Again, if it had been something gradual, but it's not. Zach and Beth have an argument at a cemetery, Beth steals Zach's car and she leaves. Then Zach runs home and the shit has already hit the fan. I know that writing scripts are hard, I'm not trying to minimize the hard work that it takes to write a great movie, but come the fuck on. You have to realize when something is poorly written and the zombie apocalypse and its integration into this film's story is really terribly executed. There's a good idea here with Zach getting a second chance at love, as corny as that sounds, and he finally gets to tell Beth all the things he never did while she was alive. The fact that Zach clings so strongly to a zombie of a person he once knew is, easily, the best part of the film, but they only really touch on that with any insight at the end of the film, when Zach and Beth go hiking. I thought that was the only bit of the film that really touched on how much Beth meant to Zack when she was still alive and I just wish the movie would've been better as to show that connection throughout the film, instead of just the climax. It would've helped if they had flashbacks to when Zach and Beth were together, maybe even include some stuff relating to their breakup that Zach mentioned a lot in the film. That would've given you some context and more detail into how and why Zach loved this girl so much. But they didn't. The film is poorly put together, right from the start. The first scene is Beth hiking. They flash the title card and then the next scene is the post-funeral reception. Really. So I guess it shouldn't surprise me that the zombie apocalypse was so poorly handled. Oh, and don't even get me started on how the apocalypse ends. There's, literally, a newscast, after Zach gets to the Levins', where his parents are staying, after saying goodbye to Beth, that just says 'the zombie apocalypse has ended' and that's it. No reasons given as to what happened or how it happened, the theory maybe being that Beth was the 'head' of the zombies and once you cut off the head, the body falls. That's where the movie is guiding you towards, but they never even fucking touched on Beth having some sort of control over the zombies or that she's the cause of everything that's going on, so that's another shitty aspect of the film. They, pretty much, get rid of the zombies by waving a magic wand and just removing them from the film without any reasonable explanation. It's honestly really terrible. This movie is a good reason why reviewing films, to me at least, are important. I wasn't as harsh on this film upon finishing it, but reviewing it has really shown me that this film is considerably worse than what I originally thought. Oh and Anna Kendrick is here as a pointless love interesting for Dane Dehaan's character. She has a 5-minute scene halfway through the movie and is never seen until the end. I love Anna Kendrick, and this isn't her fault, but why even bother casting her in the role if her role is gonna be so minor and irrelevant to the overall plot? She's just wasted here. Say what you will about Burying the Ex, which wasn't a great movie, but at least it made better use of its concept than this film. This isn't a good movie in the slightest. Solid cast isn't everything. The film is just really poorly written and it hinders the cast more than it helps them. Thankfully I saw this on Amazon Prime Video, so I didn't have to pay. But, still, this is a bad movie.
