Mrs Doubtfire was created by sweetlittlepixie
As there was absolutely zilch worth watching on TV last night I dug out 'Mrs Doubtfire' from 1993 and was set thinking that, rather than Pierce Brosnan playing 'Stu' opposite the excellent Sally Field, Nat would have filled the role perfectly.

If it was just a very handsome 'British' actor they were looking for, who could also use some funny facial expressions and perform with just the right amount of comic timing, then Nat would have been wonderful.

I wonder if he did actually audition for it?? And what would that have done for *his* career if he'd landed the part instead of Brosnan??

Hi Pixie,

I wonder if Mrs. Doubtfire really did make Brosnan's carreer? I thought he was discovered while he was doing that TV series in the early eighties but the producers of Bond thought he was too young at that time. Besides, Brosnan had a long running contract and the TV people did not allow him to do anything else besinde that thing - can't remember the title... hem? Speaking of TV series and getting some attention, THAT does fit Nat's case, eh???

But I would love to see Nat do a comedy, I mean a really good one. I don't consider Bevery Hills Ninja a funny movie, sorry :sick:

But maybe that's due to my lacking sense of humor :P

Cheers!

Me neither - as I was channel-hopping on Saturday I came across BHN and was reminded of what an absolutely apalling film it was - it quite made my flesh creep.

I watched for just long enough to focus on what an amazingly professional effort Nat made of Martin Tanley, in spite of being surrounded by such utter rubbish...

Mrs. Doubtfire, Nat would have been perfect! Beverly Hills Ninja was totally mindless. I was surprised that Nat did the movie at all! I'm sure his reasons were valid ones, but in my estimation he is so far above silliness. Is silliness the correct word? Just couldn't stand the stereotyping.

I have never seen Beverly Hills Ninja, but I have seen Wide Sargasso Sea, and unfortunately, that was a movie, in my opinion, tragically doomed from the start. Even Nat could not save it. Very disappointing. It left me with an empty feeling, and as I have not read the book for which it was based on, I could not make any opinions as to if it could be made into any type of decent movie at all, under different circumstances.

Beverly Hills Ninja was not a good movie. I did see a part of it because Nat was in it. I did tape it too but the movie was really boaring. The only good thing about it was Nat. I haven't seen Mrs Doubtfire so i don't know if Nat would be good for it. I still want to see it, but then, i have so many movies i still need to see.
