Mrs. Doubtfire

Continuity mistake: When Chris and Lydia discover that Mrs. Doubtfire is really their father, he explains Uncle Frank's and Aunt Jack's part in it. When it cuts back to Lydia, she has a long length of hair down the front of her right shoulder, but in the next shot, when she says, "It's really you in there," the hair is suddenly behind her shoulder.

Character mistake: When Mrs. Doubtfire gets her own TV show at the end, she asks the puppet if he knows anything about England. The reply is, "I only know that it's an island", which is not true. Britain is an island, not England.

Continuity mistake: When Mrs Doubtfire is pouring the cayenne pepper into Stu's dish of jambalaya, you can see that the container has nothing on the side, but when Mrs Doubtfire has finished, a label has suddenly appeared.

Continuity mistake: When Daniel (dressed as Mrs Doubtfire) is at the pool bar drinking, the bartender is wearing a black suit jacket. In the next scene, he is wearing a white suit jacket.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Daniel and his kids are having dinner, when he's 'domesticized', the first pan shot is mirrored, because his daughter is looking to her left to congratulate him, but in the next shot and all the ones after that, he would be on her right, and the table would be flipped.

Continuity mistake: When he's in the empty studio playing with the dinosaurs there is a picture of a spider on the wall behind him that keeps moving.

Mrs. Doubtfire: I hope you don't mind me being a tad rude, but... How was he? You know, on a scale of 1 to 10?
Miranda: Well, that part was always... Okay.
Mrs. Doubtfire: Just okay? Well, he was probably a Casanova compared to poor old Winston.
Miranda: What was the matter with Winston?
Mrs. Doubtfire: Oh dear, Winston's idea of foreplay was "Effie, brace yourself."
