    Imagine being sent to jail for having an animal with hooves in a residential area. "What are you in for?" Ponies, man. Ponies.

        he did say he was insane about his kids which may have lead to a plead of temporary insanity there for clearing him for the crimes but I do not know enough about the law to say if that would be the case so I could see he may not have to pay for it.

                      The time Film Theory made Mrs. Doubtfire seem scarier than 99% of horror movies coming out today.

                            The first time I saw Mrs. Doubtfire I kinda freaked out. I think it was mostly thanks to the stressful "funny" scenes, but him being so irresponsible didn't help.

                                  If I went to a party of a friend of mine I wouldn’t be trashing their house and jumping on their furniture. This kid has horrible friends

                                    Your pseudo-intellectual analysis of the movie lacks any philosophical nuance, or true intellectual analysis, for that matter.

                                    As an archetypal story rooted in human (evolutionary) psychology this movie works impeccably, and that's the only reason it was a 90s vhs classic. IT WORKS. It's a story, a heroic adventure most humans can relate to. In contrast to the minority of criminally insane men who would relate to your scary spin on this eternal myth of a flawed but good hearted hero growing, maturing,...,getting the girl...etc

                                    As for waiting 3 months to have access to his kids, he didn't want just the access to his kids, he wanted his wife, his family back.

                                    Btw, had genders been reversed the wife would not only get kids but alimony and child support.

                                    You completely glossed over his wife's selfish - making a father see his kids less than her new bf, cos he was a disappointing husband to her, shenanigans.

                                    The wife is completely ideologically possessed by feminist bullshit.

                                    She married an artistic over the top guy and had 3 kids with him - not one but three - continuously tried to change him (a very infantile and immature way to see relationships) and when that failed instead of paying him alimony till he finds a job and sharing custody with him for her kid's sake, she uses their kids to punish him. As if just any guy she decides she now likes can replace the kid's father in their lives. (How immature and insane can this woman be?)

                                    Want to discuss laws? What about double standards US family law and courts use when it comes to women and men/fathers and mothers? Again, swap the genders and reimagine their divorce, will you?

                                    She'd get kids and alimony + child support. He, as now the only financially responsible parent, would get the bills as well as to see his kids for a day more than he got as an unemployed dad.

                                    I love your channels and I'm a new subscriber, but your analysis of Mrs Doubtfire is a total fail. So much so that it makes me worry about your ability to succeed in establishing and making a committed log-term relationship work.

                                    Edit: Tbh, typed the comment out whilst showering cos I had to go run some errands. Fixed my thoughts as well as grammar a bit when I got home. If I waited to have time to comment, I'd be one of those people who don't comment. That be a shame, though, since these comments help me think.
