Fake movie trailers are some of the most creative, entertaining videos you’ll find on the Interwebs. (See Requiem for a Day Off for proof.) The latest, posted by Bestweekever.tv via Buzzfeed, takes one of my favorite childhood movies (which, coincidentally, also features divorce), Mrs. Doubtfire, and re-imagines it as a psychological thriller.

I almost didn’t buy it, until they revealed Robin Williams, sans makeup, chirping on the phone in his faux-female Scottish brogue. Creeeeepy. The quick cuts at the end are pretty inspired, too. Who thought a light-hearted drag comedy could be so chill-inducing?

Yet another cautionary tale for divorcées everywhere: don’t accidentally hire your transvestite ex as your housekeeper, or he’ll become obsessed with your children. Completely plausible.

“Life’s like a movie, write your own ending. Keep believing, keep pretending.” Jim Henson

Everyone has a few things they’d like to do or achieve before they die. But then there are the people that are constantly ticking items off that list. You know the type–fishing in Alaska one week, learning Mandarin Chinese on weekends, drinking expensive bottles of wine and being able to accurately identify the flavors. The only difference between them and everyone else is that they believe in their abilities, and they’re past that whole hesitation stage. It’s your turn.

Today, make a list of the top 5 things you want to see/do/learn during your lifetime. Pick one item and start researching it today. Become the person you want to be, the person you are deep down inside.

Life it is a movie of sorts, but you have control of the script. That script will be as funny, dramatic, scary or romantic as its main character–you.
