These deleted scenes from Mrs Doubtfire are 100% devastating

It appears the family favourite was originally a much darker film. :(

THE 1993 FILM Mrs Doubtfire is a firm family favourite, and holds some of our fondest memories of the late Robin Williams.

But deleted scenes discovered by journalist Matthew Keys reveal that the film was originally quite a bit darker than the finished product.

The first deleted scene finds Williams’ character Daniel Hillard showing up late to his daughter Lydia’s spelling bee, then getting into a very public argument with ex-wife Miranda (Sally Field), before an upsetting confrontation with Lydia:

And the second, and perhaps more painful scene to watch, inserts another fight between Daniel and Miranda, this time after she finds out he’s Mrs Doubtfire:

Watch the full two scenes here, but make sure to grab a few tissues.
