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.

Revealing mistake: Mrs. Doubtfire sets herself on fire. When she jumps back and starts fighting the flames, it is obviously a stunt double as her face is longer.

Question: When Daniel is calling home to apply for the job of housekeeper, why did he use different accents instead of just using the British accent instantly?

Answer: Daniel was pretending to be different people that were just all very horrible, so he used different accents. This way, when the "British nanny" calls, he was hoping Miranda would instantly consider him. If he called pretending to be Ms. Doubtfire right away, she might not have basically given him the job right away. And if he used the charming British accent for all his characters, it would have lost its charm when he decided to be Ms. Doubtfire.
