Lethal Weapon 2 picture

Audio problem: In the scene where Leo explains how he launders the drug money and Roger says "You're a cheat", Leo says "Come on, everyone cheats a little, look at the pentagon." But when he says "look at the pentagon", it's dubbed in because the sound of his voice doesn't match his other dialogue, and if you read his lips it doesn't match either.

Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade picture

Audio problem: When Indy confronts the butler at the castle, we hear the butler say, "If you are a Scottish lord then I am Mickey Mouse." But his lips say something else. He actually said "then I am Jesse Owens." This line was changed because they thought that a lot of the audience wouldn't know who Jesse Owens (the black athlete who won at the Berlin Olympics) was. (00:46:00)

K-9 (1989)

K-9 picture

Audio problem: When Dooley is in the car on stakeout, he is playing on a Nintendo Game & Watch. They were only capable of bleeps and buzzing noises, yet this one has a sampled laugh, which was never possible on these handheld games. (00:02:20 - 00:10:55)

Licence to Kill picture

Audio problem: When Bond captures the seaplane with the money, he knocks out the pilot and throws him out. We can see that his body is limp when he falls from the plane. Nevertheless there is an 'aaaarrrrgghh' sound, as he falls. If he was awake, he would not have been as limp as we see - and in that event it is then clear it is a dummy being thrown from the plane.
