But if there's love, dear... those are the ties that bind, and you'll have a family in your heart, forever. All my love to you poppet, you're going to be alright... bye bye.
Released on Nov. 24, 1993, the film starred Robin Williams as divorced father Daniel Hillard — who pretends to be an elderly female housekeeper so he can spend more time with his children. With help from his creative brother Frank (Harvey Fierstein), he dresses as an older British woman and convinces his ex-wife, Miranda (Sally Field), to hire him as a nanny.

Director Chris Columbus used two to three cameras at a time because he never knew what Williams would come up with next. The actor improvised so much that, according to the director, there were PG, PG-13, R and NC-17 edits of the film.
Williams' many off-the-cuff references had to be monitored so the production could avoid legal headaches. His line about "this lovely 'Dances with Wolves' motif," for instance, required approval.
