Mrs. Doubtfire recut as a psychological thriller
A bitter divorce, custody battle, cross-dressing, Mrs. Doubtfire was already rife with dramatic conflict on paper. We've already seen famous thrillers get the comedy treatment, but now with the magic of editing, we only now realize the true sinister qualities of the 1993 "dark" comedy hit, Mrs. Doubtfire.
Behind the mask of this sweet-natured British nanny lies a desperate man-- one who's lost everything. Who knew this character would be the warm-up act to Robin Williams's later work in One Hour Photo and Insomnia? It's scream-out-loud scary.
