MRS. DOUBTFIRE is a US comedy in which an actor who is estranged from his family dresses as a female housekeeper in order to be near his children.

Sex

There are several moderate sex references when one character taunts another about the sexual favours he might be expecting from a woman. The character uses innuendo to refer to oral sex, masturbation and sex toys with comments including a reference to a 'going down payment' and 'a bit of the cunning linguists'. There are also comments about a woman possibly dressing like a 'harlot' or 'streetwalker'.

Language

There is use of a middle finger gesture. Mild bad language includes uses of 'bitch', 'bloody', 'crap', 'piss', 'bastard', 'shit' and 'hell'.

There are some scenes of comic slapstick as a character's fake foam breasts catch fire while they're cooking and the Heimlich manoeuvre is tried on a man to comic excess.
