Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)

Recommended Posts

With a budget of 25m Mrs Doubtfire went on to gross 441m world wide and be Robin Williams highest grossing domestic movie. It was the second highest grossing movie world wide of 1993 behind Jurassic Park, but head of The Fugitive which came in at number 3 for the year. Inflation brings Mrs Doubtfire to over 900m. A comedy about a man in an old lady suit trying to spend more time with his children brought in just under a billion dollars. A true phenomenon.

Everyone thinks it's family friendly but it was rated PG-13 and has some adult humour. 


I really like the speech at the end where Daniel as Mrs Doubtfire responds to the letter about a girl's parents splitting up. It's one of the more poignant moments of the film.

Love this movie. I came to know after many years that this was remade in 2 indian languages namely Hindi and tamil by kamal hassan...the reason was i saw the remade version first and doubtfire later.


The film earned $219,195,243 in the United States and Canada, and $222,090,952 in other countries, for a worldwide total of $441,286,195, making it Fox's highest-grossing film internationally at the time and the highest-grossing cross-dressing film. It became the second-highest-grossing film of 1993, behind only Jurassic Park.

Box Office Mojo estimates that the film sold over 52.6 million tickets in the US. It had a record opening for Fox in the United Kingdom with $5.8 million in 6 days (and the third best in the country after Jurassic Park and Bram Stoker's Dracula) and went on to gross $30.1 million, a Fox record. It had the second biggest opening in Italy behind Jurassic Park with $2.9 million and also grossed a record for Fox in Italy with $15.6 million. It also had record openings for Fox in France (with a opening week gross of $4.8 million and a total of $23 million), Belgium, Hungary and Denmark. It grossed $29.6 million in Germany. The film was number one at the Australian box office and Japanese box office for nine consecutive weeks.
