The Undoubtedly Funny Mrs. Doubtfire

It’s been a long time since Robin Williams put on a dress, wig and prosthetics to become the outrageous Mrs. Doubtfire.  Robin Williams and the original director, Chris Columbus, have signed up to bring back the Scottish housekeeper twenty years after the movie was originally released.  Mrs. Doubtfire was about a father who disguised himself as a nanny in order to spend more time with his children after his wife filed for divorce. The original movie was a box office success and Mrs. Doubtfire became a 90s classic and household name. In the following clip, Gene Shallit interviews Robin Williams about his role in the movie. Watch as Robin Williams puts on multiple impersonations in this exclusive Today Show interview. Do you think the sequel will be as funny?
