There Is An R-Rated Cut Of “Mrs. Doubtfire”

Chris Columbus directed the 1993 Robin Williams movie, and confirmed internet rumors that not all of Robin’s ad libbed lines hit the cutting room floor.  In fact, he said he was open to making a documentary about making the movie, to showcase Robin’s comic genius that wasn’t safe for the family version.

Columbus said, “The reality is that there was a deal between Robin and myself, which was, he’ll do one or two, three scripted takes. And then he would say, ‘Then let me play.’ And we would basically go on anywhere between 15 to 22 takes, I think 22 being the most I remember…” “He would sometimes go into territory that wouldn’t be appropriate for a PG-13 movie, but certainly appropriate and hilariously funny for an R-rated film” .

Columbus said he’s happy with the version everyone knows, which won the a Best Picture Golden Globe, a Best Actor Golden Globe for Williams and an Oscar for Best Makeup.
