Robin Williams plays actor Daniel Hillard, a loving but feckless dad whose wife has decided she's had enough of him and files for divorce. Daniel is heartbroken when she gets custody of the kids but soon hatches a plan - to use all his acting skills to become a sweet-but-firm Scottish woman, Mrs Doubtfire, and secretly become nanny to his own children. Williams successfully channels his trademark comic energy here to create the unflappable Mrs D, funniest when there's a slightly risqué wisecrack sneaking out from "her" oh-so-respectable lips.
With a firm hand and a bit of magic, the nanny of the title helps to bring up the seven noisy and messy children of a father whose wife has died.
