Gladiator picture

Audio problem: When Maximus is eating with Juba and Hagen, just before he fights Tigris of Gaul, listen to the background noise very closely as the men talk. There's lots of chatter and stray noises, but amid the sounds you can hear someone yelling urgently: "Warren, Warren... Warren...radio."

Grease 2 picture

Audio problem: When singing Reproduction, a boy sings "Oh I think I'm gonna throw up"; yet he sticks his finger down his throat and keeps it there until the line is over, never closing his mouth; how did he make the 'p' sound on 'up' without closing his lips together? The words are pronounced very clearly and the camera doesn't cut from his face until after the line is done.

Deja Vu picture

Audio problem: When Doug is staring at the terrorist and says, "I can see him, he's right in front of me", you'll notice that his mouth moves a little before words are actually said. This is because he first says "Jesus", but they took it out because the character playing the terrorist is Jim Caviziel, who played Jesus in Passion of the Christ. The filmmakers did not want to get a laugh out of that line which it inevitably did in test screenings. (01:06:10)
