According to one biography, Robin Williams decided to test out the believability of his Mrs. Doubtfire character during filming by going, as Mrs. Doubtfire, into an adult bookstore and making a purchase. He was able to do so without being recognized. See more »
Miranda, a professional decorator, recommends a "17th Century grand piano" for Stuart's B&B. The piano is an 18th Century invention, while the grand piano, as we know it, was not invented until the late 19th Century. What did exist in the 17th Century (which in fact resembled a piano) was a harpsichord. See more »

Robin Williams Dressed Up As A 60 Year Old Women? HILARIOUS!
I saw this movie at the cinema in 1993 and thought it was fantastic! It has everything you could ever really want in a comedy. Daniel Hillard (Robin Williams) will do ANYTHING to see his children! This movie has plenty of gags, but it all comes together in a nice, friendly framework that centres around one man's family and that man's love for his children that'll make him dress up as a 60 year old granny to get back into their lives! Plenty of laughs throughout and all-round great performances. 9/10
