On November 24th, it will have been 20 years since the wonderful family movie Mrs. Doubtfire was released. Twenty years! I feel as old as Mrs. D hearing that! The movie became the second highest grossing film of 1993 (beaten only by Jurassic Park). It starred Robin Williams as voiceover actor Daniel who is out of work and in the middle of a divorce. His ex-wife, played by Sally Field, wins custody of their three children, and Daniel is devastated. Hearing that his ex intends to employ a nanny to mind the kids, he applies for the job in the disguise of tough Scottish nanny, Mrs. Doubtfire. Will he get the job? Is his stunt just a catastrophe waiting to happen? I won't spoil the plot for those who have yet to watch it! I think it's about time I dug my old VHS copy out and watched this classic movie again! Happy Birthday, Mrs. Doubtfire - you have certainly aged well! To celebrate the birthday of one heck of a good movie, here are some fun facts for all you Doubtfire fans. -By Suzanne Cowie
