Mrs. Doubtfire: a classic, to say the least! Robin Williams at his absolute best. A love-letter to San Francisco. Brilliant writing. Funny as hell. Do you know anyone who doesn’t like this movie? And wow, how could it get any better? Not possible, right? Unless…it was released as a Rated-R version with never-before-seen footage where director Chris Columbus just let Robin go wild and do his comedy thing, acting the scenes out improv style and off-script? This footage really does exist, as Columbus confirmed that sometimes they would even do 15-22 takes on one scene! But he also says this version will likely not see the light of day, or at least not the full feature. “I would be open to maybe doing a documentary about the making of the film and enabling people to see certain scenes re-edited in an R-rated version.”
So you’re saying there’s a chance!? We really hope so.
