Continuity mistake: In the pool scene where Mrs. Doubtfire picks up and throws a lime at the back of Stu's head, when Stu walks away and the camera goes back to Mrs. Doubtfire at the bar, the lime that she threw is still on the top of the stack of fruit.

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.

Suggested correction: If you look carefully, the face looks pretty much the same, as well as the voice.

Wolf99

The reason the voice was the same is that it was probably an audio dub, which is a voice recording over someone else's voice.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the social worker is at Mr. Hillard's house and his so-called "sister" (Mrs. Doubtfire) is trying to find a face in the kitchen, one moment the wig is all messed up from being caught on the door. In the next scene, where she is looking in the fridge to find the face, her wig is perfectly in place.

Suggested correction: It was in place because at one point, Daniel even moved his wig and fixed it.

Wolf99

You must be confusing which part of the scene the mistake is talking about. Right before Daniel opens the fridge door, when he has the towel over his face, his wig is messed up, there's even a strand of hair hanging down. When we see from inside the fridge, the wig is perfect without Daniel touching his wig.

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.

Suggested correction: If you look the scene carefully you see the camera moving through the room (showing how correct everything is). This movements ends indeed in a view in a mirror. So it is a shoot in the mirror and therefore no error.

Miranda: What was the matter with Winston?
Mrs. Doubtfire: Oh dear, Winston's idea of foreplay was "Effie, brace yourself."

More trivia for Mrs. Doubtfire

Question: When Daniel learns that Stu is allergic to pepper he sneaks into the kitchen and spikes his food. Later when Stu starts choking Daniel seems surprised. What did he think was going to happen?

Answer: Well when someone's allergies act up, typically people associate that with sneezing and coughing, etc. Daniel didn't think there'd be a much more serious reaction.

Answer: Likely especially since Daniel was drunk, he didn't think it through, and the fact that Stu could die from his "prank."

Answer: He acts surprised so that everyone thinks he wasn't in on it, and he is just another person scared for Stu. If he didn't have a surprised face, or just a straight face, the gig would've been easier to notice.

Answer: Maybe just faking it as Mrs. Doubtfire to avoid being caught smiling to himself?
