After a bitter divorce, an actor disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife.
Chris Columbus sold scripts to Steven Spielberg that became Gremlins (1984) and The Goonies (1985) but his career didn't really take off until the major success of Home Alone (1990) which allowed Columbus to move on to other more successful projects like Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) and the first two Harry Potter films.
When Mrs. Doubtfire and Miranda are unloading a paper bag of groceries, Mrs. Doubtfire pulls out a small bag of tomatoes. In the next shot, she pulls out the same bag of vegetables and carries them to the refrigerator to place into the crisper.
When aired on Fox Family, all profanities were cut out, including words like Hell and Damn; however the scene where Daniel imitates Porky Pig and tells Lou to piss off is still intact.
