    Mrs. Doubtfire

    ★★★★

    So my beautiful wife rented out our local movie theatre for my birthday so we could watch one of our all time favourite movies on the big screen. Mrs. Doubtfire was NOT that movie. We brought DVD and Blu-ray versions of Amadeus, but no matter what we did the theatre could not get them to work.
