She’s a father and a nanny, for God’s sake. Despite Twitter’s fervent hopes earlier this week, there’s no cut Mrs. Doubtfire could qualify for an NC-17 rating. After this a viral tweet circulated, supposedly based on an interview in 2015 with director Christopher Columbus, who proposes an indescribably adult version of 1993 Robin Williams The comedy could be put together from the late comedian’s improvised lines. Columbus forwarded your dreams to Entertainment Weekly on Friday. “Only me [previously] used the sentence NC-17 as a joke ” he has confirmed. “There couldn’t be an NC-17 version of the film.”

But if it makes you feel better, and probably will, Robin Williams reportedly boosted his salty alts well beyond the movie’s PG-13 ratings after Columbus captured the scripted takes he needed to get on the motion Picture Association of to come by America without spontaneous fainting or vomiting.

“The reality is that there was a deal between Robin and me that was that he would do a script take or two or three. And then he said, “Then let me play.” And we’d basically be doing between 15 and 22 takes, I think 22 is the most I can remember, “recalls Columbus. “Sometimes he went into areas that weren’t suitable for a PG-13 movie, but certainly appropriate and hilarious for an R-rated movie.”

“I would be open to maybe making a documentary about the making of the film and allowing people to re-edit certain scenes in an R-rated version,” says the director. “The problem is, I don’t remember most of it. I only know what’s in the movie at this point because it was a long time ago. But I remember it was hilarious material. “

Aaaaaa and if that’s enough to make you commit to one Snyder CutCampaign style to see that filthy version of Mrs. Doubtfire, then Godspeed, and hopefully we’ll see you on HBO Max soon.
