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)
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.Jayson
Audio problem: When Tina is in the car with who she thinks is her boyfriend but is really Michael Myers; watch her lips when she says the line "Nothing Mike, that's what I get, Nothing." It is obvious that this line was dubbed in over something else as her lips do not match that particular line. (00:42:55)
Audio problem: When the three die-hard Indian's fans are arguing over the ball that gets hit out of the park (a guy is saying "It's too high"), one of the guys says "Who gives a s***, it's gone". If you look closely at his lips, he is saying something entirely different. (00:38:00)
Audio problem: In the scene where Matthew Broderick is addressing the potential members of the 54th on horseback (right after he accepts the position), the army band is playing, but the visuals don't match the music. While we hear drumrolls, we only see single hits on the snare drums by the actors. And at least one drummer is playing in mid-air.
Audio problem: When Harry and Nikki are driving in the vintage speedster with no brakes, Nikki is heard saying "same old family crap", but her lips mouth "same old family shit".
Audio problem: Dalton has just been awakened by a young woman bringing breakfast into his bedroom. Pay attention to his mouth when he moans. The first few moans appear to have been dubbed in, as his mouth is closed, yet they sound like they would have to be made with an open mouth. (00:20:45 - 00:31:05)Jon Nicholas
