Mara Wilson Thinks 'Mrs. Doubtfire' Sequel Is A Bad Idea

April 17th, 2014 10:26pm EDT
Mara Wilson
Mara Wilson, who played the adorable Nattie Hillard in 1993's Mrs. Doubtfire, thinks that the planned sequel to the film is a bad idea.

The film's star, Robin Williams, is reportedly back on board, and Chris Columbus is set to direct the sequel, which, we assume, sees Williams' out of work actor character Daniel Hillard finally with a steady job and grown kids.

"For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs....

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

July 6th, 2009 9:36am EDT
Bruno
Last week, I chose to see "Public Enemies," which is a decision I definitely do not regret. Johnny Depp is electric as John Dillinger, oozing the charm and finesse of the real life American bank robber and folk hero. Christian Bale also does a solid job as the FBI agent Melvin Purvis, a man singularly obsessed with catching Dillinger.
