Below is the synopsis of "Mrs. Doubtfire," per IMDb.

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.

"Mrs. Doubtfire" was also a critical and commercial success. The film holds a fresh rating of 71 percent and an audience score of 77 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). "Mrs. Doubtfire" made over $441 million worldwide at the box office. 

Not only is the film regarded as one of Williams' greatest blockbusters, the titular character is definitely revered as one of his funniest movie roles. Williams not only perfectly embodies playing an American voice actor (as an actor) and a struggling dad, but a dad pretending to be housekeeper with a Scottish accent desperate to become closer to his kids. Though Williams' role has been compared to Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in "Some Like It Hot" and Dustin Hoffman in "Tootsie," talk about a layered performance. Watch this hilarious "hot flashes" scene from the family comedy below.
