* RomanticFalseLead: Averted, the wife's new boyfriend (played by PierceBrosnan) is an actual caring nice guy who wants to be a part of her family, and seems like a much more stable and mature father figure for them. He still gets a somewhat out of place KickTheDog moment when he badmouths Daniel by the poolside, though.
** Possibly justified though, since Miranda would probably not be very glowing about Daniel in talking about her divorce to Stu, making him feel like Daniel did wrong by her. It's less of a personal attack on Daniel but more of being upset that someone broke Miranda's heart. He also appears to be careful about ''not'' badmouthing Daniel in front of Miranda or the children, as opposed to Miranda, who does it openly in front of the kids.

but that's easily justified though, since Miranda would probably not be very glowing about for a number of reasons (he hurt Maranda, for one) and he never speaks ill of Daniel in talking about her divorce to Stu, making him feel like Daniel did wrong by her.

Added DiffLines:

* LateArrivalSpoiler: The back of the original book cover features a summary of the story's plot, but actually makes no mention about Daniel and Mrs. Doubtfire being the same person (only stating that Miranda has hired a peculiar nanny to watch over them). This suggests that Doubtfire really being Daniel was meant to be a surprise to the reader. However, most people are likely more familiar with the film adaptation, so very likely, anyone who reads the book will already know going in what's happening.

Added DiffLines:

** The original plan was to have Daniel and Miranda get back together at the end of the movie, but Williams, Field, and Columbus (all divorcees themselves) changed it to having them not because they felt as if it was too unrealistic. Some marriages really ''don't'' work out, but that doesn't mean that the parents don't love the kids anymore.

** This also applies to his parenting and housekeeping. At first Daniel has to pretend to be the ideal babysitter and housekeeper as Mrs. Doubtfire in order to stay employed by Miranda, by doing things like make the kids do homework and chores before they can goof off (something he would let them do as Daniel), and keep the house clean and make delicious meals to make their mom happy. Eventually these skills become so second-nature that even after the kids learn who he keeps encouraging them to balance fun with responsibilities, and he cooks and keeps house at his own place as well as Miranda's.
