King Ralph picture

Audio problem: Apparently, Ralph's surname was changed at the last minute from the British Royal Family surname of "Windsor" to "Windham." There are several points in the film, where there is a lip-sync problem, due to the differences of the name, because it has been dubbed.

Nothing But Trouble picture

Audio problem: During the supper, right after Fausto and Renalda jumps through the windows, Chris and Diane runs for the exit. Right before they reach the exit, Judge Valkenheiser pushes a switch that makes bars come down from the roof and block the exit. Eldona goes over to them and grabs Diane, and Chris says "Take your hands off her." The voice has a metallic sound. I have tried to look for any logical explaination in the scene as for why the voice is like this, but it has to be an audio problem.

The Pope Must Die picture

Audio problem: When Robbie is playing his guitar for the children early on in the film, the way he is playing simply wouldn't sound like what you hear - it's very badly dubbed.

Audio problem: Near the end of the movie: In the last club scene, an acoustic piano can be heard. Notice that is different than a regular piano. However, when we see the piano it's a Fender Rhodes piano, and not an acoustic. OK, it could be another piano, but the club only has the one piano.
