Mrs. Doubtfire mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When the Hillards are at the pool, we see Stu, with his hairy chest, on the diving board. When the shot zooms out, we see a guy with no hair on his chest, who is obviously the stunt double.

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the kitchen while Daniel is looking for a face, his robe is not closed completely at the top, but as soon as Mrs. Stelner enters, the robe is done all the way up and quite tightly. After the face cream in the coffee, Mrs. Doubtfire leaves but quickly sticks her head back in the kitchen and her robe is again loose at the top.

Suggested correction: There might have been another lime in the back that Mrs. Doubtfire put in the previous spot.

This correction is too much of a stretch to be valid. There's nothing to suggest Daniel did this and he's not really off camera long enough to reset a lime (of the same exact size) and then get back into the position he's in when the camera is back on him.
