Get ready for today’s…Blast from the Past!

From Oscar nominee Chris Columbus, the director of “Home Alone” (1990), “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York”, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” (2001), “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” (2002), and others, comes this enchanting and hilarious family dramedy…

Daniel Hillard/Mrs. Doubtfire: “Can you make me a woman?”

Frank Hillard: “Honey I’m so happy!”

“Mrs. Doubtfire” released on this day November 24th 1993, making the film 25 years old as of today.

Perhaps one of the funniest motion pictures you’ll ever see, the film follows an unemployed actor and devoted father (the late Oscar winner Robin Williams) who after his wife, played by Oscar winner Sally Field, divorces him, dresses up as the titular elderly English housekeeper in order to spend time with his children.

Fun fact: the film earned an Academy Award for Best Makeup – Greg Cannom, Ve Neill, and Yolanda Toussieng, as well as 2 Golden Globes, Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical, and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical – Robin Williams.

Also, the American Film Institute (AFI) placed the motion picture as #67 on its 100 Years…100 Laughs list.

Some of the film’s highlights include the story, cast, performances especially Williams, music score by Oscar winner Howard Shore (who you may know scored the music for the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy (2001-2003), humor, and its occasional heartwarming moments.

On a personal note, it is highly possible that the dramedy will be included in my upcoming list of “Top 10 Films You Won’t Believe Are Turning 25”.

If you are looking for a film that the whole family will enjoy, as well as those seeking for hilarity in movie entertainment, then this is for you, or for anyone you know, who likes the aforementioned aspects.

Recommended to fans of 90s cinema, the aforementioned genres and actors.
