The most amazing moment in Mrs. Doubtfire isn't when poor Robin Williams is stuffed into his pantyhose and cumbersome padding beside a swimming pool on a hot day, or when his Mrs. Doubtfire “boobs” almost catch fire, or even—in the extended sequence that leads to his unmasking as the father to his children as well as their female Scottish nanny—when he dashes around a restaurant furiously getting in and out of drag.
It comes right at the end in a voiceover, and it is—for a Hollywood film—a radical ending in every way: an ending that does not see a husband and wife reunite, or a broken family glued back together. Instead, a new kind of mainstream movie family takes shape—two separated parents, united by their much-loved children.
And then, after that, Mrs. Doubtfire herself gives a speech that emphasizes the various definitions of what “family” can encompass.
The significance of this is in the film’s year of release: 1993 was in the white heat of the culture wars, the year after arch-homophobe Pat Buchanan addressed the Republican National Convention to tell the assembled that the agenda that Bill and Hillary Clinton “would impose on America—abortion on demand, a litmus test for the Supreme Court, homosexual rights, discrimination against religious schools, women in combat—that’s change, all right. But it is not the kind of change America wants. It is not the kind of change America needs. And it is not the kind of change we can tolerate in a nation that we still call God’s country.”

Robin Williams was a master at the spontaneous riff. He could just take a topic and go off on several different tangents, making them funnier and funnier as the ideas came to him literally on the spot. In this short chat from 2002 for the film Insomnia, he was in a really healthy and happy place. I have interviewed him over the years since 1982 and he never ceased to amaze and entertain me.
He talks about turning 50, but of course in the way that only Robin Williams can, his return to stand-up after 15 years, and the future of his own Cabarnet wine Chateau Pimm named for his son's middle name, which he loftily gives out to family and friends.
The artistry and comedy of Robin Williams will forever be missed, but never forgotten.

Mrs. Jennifer Martin Author of a new book: Psorias- A Love Story. will be Tough Cookie Guest September 29th at 8:30 PM PST on Let's talk Real talk.Funny, factual, and over the edge, Psoriasis—A Love Story, tells the true story of Jennifer Martin's 30-year battle with psoriasis. Fed up with poor results from traditional medicine, she leapt out of its confines into an exploration of Eastern medicine, past life regression, soul retrieval, juicing, Rife machines, dowsing, ho'oponopono, Chinese medicine, Reiki, the Edgar Cayce protocol, and more. After years of researching and becoming a self-described guinea pig by experimenting with these disciplines and treatments, she decided to share her journey, one that addressed all the possible causes of psoriasis by looking at our human components: physical, mental, emotional, psychological, and spiritual. Jennifer's transcendence and ultimate victory over psoriasis will not only enlighten readers about how to begin their own search for a cure, but will uplift and inspire them along the way. Endorsed by Jack Canfield, Joe Cross, and many other authors, Psoriasis—A Love Story, is a life manual not only for the 7 million psoriasis sufferers in America, but for anyone looking for a way to go beneath the layers to soul healing as well.
Here is a interview on July 27, 2014 on Good Day, Sacramento, channel 31, featuring her book, Psoriasis-A Love Story and highlighting how juicing helped her heal from psoriasis.
