Mrs Doubtfire is one of my favourite films.
It works on a whole lot of levels for me.
Obviously, there’s the comedy – Robin Williams is fantastic.
Then there’s the Pierce Brosnan factor.
I’ve read the novel on which it is based – Madame Doubtfire by Anne Fine – but it’s a lot darker.
I have to say I prefer the lighter
I’ve not been having a good week for one reason or another, I won’t bore you with the details, but what I was going through reminded me of a line in the film said by Robin Williams’ character Daniel:
‘Did you ever wish you could sometimes freeze frame a moment in your day, look at it and say "this is not my life"?’
I’m sure we all have those moments. It’s now, unfortunately, a much over-used phrase, but I like to occasionally remind myself to ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’. I find it helps – that and red wine and/or chocolate!
