Corrected entry: This movie does not seem to be set at a particular time. The family watch Dick Van Dyke on TV, seemingly indicating that the film is set in the late 60's. However, at the beginning of the movie, Daniel is doing the voice-over for a very Looney Tunes type of cartoon, implying that this movie is set in the 50's. Then at Chris's party, the music they are playing is of the 90's era.
Corrected entry: Daniel fakes an old woman's voice on the phone to fool his wife, yet when he goes to his brothers house to get made up, they try various different looks to get his disguise right. Surely he would have told them that he has to look like an old woman, and not just any woman. Obviously the different look scenes were added to show off Robin Williams' hilarious talent, but surely Daniel wasn't actually going to go to his house dressed up in tarty clothes, massive red nails, barely no make-up, and with a Cuban accent and expect no-one to notice it was him?Padzter
Corrected entry: No one ever questions Mrs Doubtfire's claim to be English, despite the fact that she speaks in an instantly recognizable Scottish accent.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the film, Mrs Doubtfire gets her big break, and gets a tv show. The show is a live show (you know this, because during the show she asks if there is enough time to meet the postman, and also because the producer guy says that the ratings are going up as soon as the show stops, which means the show must be live). Now, I'm confused. The kids of Robin Williams are watching the Mrs Doubtfire show, but then they get a visitor. It's their dad. Their dad, who is meant to be on the set recording Mrs Doubtfire live. How can he be picking up the kids, and doing the show at the same time?
Corrected entry: In the ad that Miranda shows Daniel, there are two phone numbers listed, presumably a work and home number, or work and mobile. However, Daniel calls Miranda, while impersonating other candidates, on three separate phone numbers. Daniel would only call her on two of the phone numbers.
