Mrs. Doubtfire: Special Edition

A substantial amount of dialogue has been cut from the scene in the restaurant (Chapter 19). After Miranda Hillard (Sally Field) has been given the bracelet by Stu Dunmire (Pierce Brosnan), she goes off to the toilet and Mrs Doubtfire starts talking about Stu wanting a "bit more", with increasingly more racy references to sexual intercourse (horizontal mambo being one of the references deleted). The dialogue on the DVD is cut at about 89:54 and the cut amounts to about thirteen seconds, when the film resumes with Mrs Doubtfire saying "hope you are prepared for some competition". The cuts were made by the BBFC for "crude sexual references". The excised references are definitely on the Australian VHS tape.
