New this month Suggested correction: The Head Elf was putting on a fake "nice voice" so that Santa and Mrs. Claus would think he was a nice guy most of the time. As soon as Santa and Mrs. Claus leave the room, he reverts back to his usual mean and shouting persona.

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York picture

Audio problem: When Kevin plays the tape of his Uncle Frank singing in the shower, it starts with "We know a guy that can really do the cool jerk" twice. Yet, when he first tapes his Uncle, he doesn't start the recording until after that has been sung. The recording also sounds very clear. When he tapes him the door is closed, but the tape sounds the same throughout. Also, when his Uncle says he's gonna "slap him silly" Kevin shuts the door behind him and you can hear it shut. On the tape there is no sound of the door shutting.

The Lizzie McGuire Movie picture

Audio problem: When Lizzie is performing at the end of the movie at the awards show, at the part where we see her from the back facing the blue light, her voice sounds like it's changing. It seems like it's someone much older singing, or the synthesizer went wrong. It just obviously isn't Lizzie's voice anymore.

Mrs. Doubtfire picture

Audio problem: During the final court case scene at the end of the film, Miranda's lawyer turns to her and says, 'Congratulations'. The lawyer's head is turned away from our view slightly, but you can see that she doesn't move her mouth. It does move about a second after 'Congratulations' is said, but it does not move long enough for the lawyer to have actually said 'Congratulations'.

Audio problem: When they're standing on the breaking ice, as Peter points his sword at Maugrim, Susan shouts, "Look, just because some man in a red coat hands you a sword doesn't make you a hero. Just drop it." In the very next shot (we still see Susan's profile, despite the side shot), Susan's lips/jaw are moving, but nothing is heard, which occurs just as Peter quickly glances at her and we also hear Beaver shout, "No, Peter!"

High School Musical 2 picture

Audio problem: When Troy and Gabriella are singing "Everyday," Troy sings with his microphone away from his mouth numerous times during the scene, yet he is still heard just as well, and not at a lower level, like he should be.
