Audio problem: When Vader is talking to an Imperial officer in the hangar in the Death Star, when the officer says, "It must be a decoy, sir. Several of the escape pods have been jettisoned." his head is shown from behind, but his profile shows his mouth is moving before the words are heard. (01:03:55)
Audio problem: After Bond sets the timer on the bomb at the end, the ticks don't add up. There's a definite tick each second, and you can count 12 of them after he starts it, then we cut back to the bomb and only 7 seconds have passed. (As a vague trivia aside, coincidence though it is, on the UK DVD he pulls the pin out at the DVD second timer ticks onto "07").Jon Sandys
Audio problem: After the bus crashes to a halt on the courthouse steps, the gunfire stops. A few seconds later, a bullet hole opens up on the side of the bus - but there is no sound.
Audio problem: The section of sound effects used as the Trans-Am and the big-rig pull up to the warehouse to get the beer is exactly the same 'loop' as the effects used when the Trans-Am and the big-rig stop by the pond to give 'Fred' his burgers for lunch. Specifically, the Trans-Am's engine idling down to a stop, then the T/A's door closing, then the big-rig's air brakes squealing a very distinctive sound and finally the big-rig's engine rattling to a stop. Exact same 'loop' both times.
Audio problem: In the scene where Bobby is talking to Tony's brother (the ex-priest) in the nightclub about getting his girlfriend pregnant, his lips rarely move when he is speaking, when the scene is shot on his right side. His movements of his mouth do not match the dialogue. (01:04:45)
Audio problem: During the scene where Lauren is talking to Wade on the phone and the car smashes through the window, she says she's hears the engine of the car, and that it "sounds so weird". Watch closely, though, and you'll see that the words aren't quite synchronized with the way her mouth moves. (I saw this on the VHS tape and the DVD).
