Mrs. Doubtfire

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.

Visible crew/equipment: When Mrs. Doubtfire is cooking in the kitchen, sets her fake breasts on fire, then hits them with the pan lids to put them out, you can see the camera crew in the reflection of one of the pan lids.

Trivia: The newspaper that contains the words 'Doubt Fire' was the same newspaper used on the first episode of Charmed.

Trivia: The man who played Todd the bartender at the swimming pool is Robin Williams' brother, Todd Williams.

Trivia: Adding to the 'carpe dentum' contribution, if you look at Pierce Brosnan when Mrs Doubtfire gets up from the table, he is moments away from bursting out laughing. According to the commentary track on the dvd, it was this reference to Dead Poets Society that tickled Brosnan but he managed to keep a straight face and so they didn't need to reshoot.

More quotes from Mrs. Doubtfire

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.

Bishop73

Answer: He was just practising or trying it out, and took a while to think of it.

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

Answer: To get rid of the smell of alcohol, although it's pretty obvious Mrs Doubtfire is drunk anyway.
