The Top Ten

1 It's based on a 1987 British novel - Madame Doubtfire by Anne Fine, known as Alias Madame Doubtfire in the US
2 It took 4 and a half hours to apply Mrs. Doubtfire's makeup
3 The makeup artists won the Oscar for Best Makeup
4 Lisa Jakub (Lydia) was expelled from her school in Toronto, Canada, for being absent for 5 months while working on the movie
5 Robin Williams wrote a letter to Lisa Jakub's school asking them to reconsider. School officials framed his letter. But didn’t change their mind about Lisa Jakub.
6 20th Century Fox asked the screenwriter Singer to change the ending so that Daniel and Miranda get back together. She left the movie. Leslie Dixon wrote a happier ending but when the studio and director Columbus read it, they asked Singer to come back

So the ending was changed back to the two remaining divorced. - Metal_Treasure

7 In the original script, Mrs. Doubtfire was set in Chicago but it was shot entirely in San Francisco
8 Director Columbus used multiple cameras to capture the cast when Williams improvised
9 Actors often went off script and some short scenes and lines were added to the movie
10 Columbus said the footage gave him the option of cutting a PG, PG-13, R, or NC-17 version of the movie. He went with the PG-13 version.

Why is it even rated PG-13?
To me, this is a completely harmless family film. - Martin_Canine
