Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)

When manchild Daniel Hillard screws up for the last time, his wife Miranda sends him packing.  In order to spend time with his kids, he masquerades as the quintessential Scottish housekeeper Euphengenia Doubtfire.  No one's the wiser until Daniel makes a piss pour ;-) decision to not lock the bathroom door.  His secret isn't able to be kept much longer.  But Miranda has a change of heart following a bitter custody battle, making for a happy ending instead of a real drag ;-)

I know, Dustin Hoffman already did this in a little movie called Tootsie (1982).  But Robin Williams delivers some laugh out loud moments.  Pierce Brosnon can barely keep a straight face during the drive-by fruiting ad-lib.  Mrs. Doubtfire created an inferno at the box office and warmed the hearts of moviegoers.  It also left a few critics burned out on the recycled premise.
