Freeway picture

Audio problem: When Bob runs from Vanessa, out of the car after being shot, Vanessa shoots her gun, and we see the bullet hit the floor, with the audio of gunfire to match it. Then audibly we hear Vanessa shot the gun two more times, however visibly three bullet-holes appear in Bob's brown coat, so they forgot the audio for one of the bullet-fire, also revealing that Bob was probably wearing squibs.

Audio problem: When Dodge and Jackson go outside to put the spotlight on the periscope, Jackson climbs up. He sings the Army theme, be all you can be. You hear Dodge say that's the army not the navy, but if you look at him when he says this, he doesn't even open his mouth.

Jerry Maguire picture

Audio problem: In the scene where Jerry and Dorothy are having dinner at a restaurant, Dorothy leaves the table to make a phone call. While she is on the phone the Mexican musicians come over to Jerry and start playing music at their table. At one point, the shot is on Jerry with the violin player standing behind him. In the song they are playing you can hear the sound of the violin playing, but at the same time the violin player standing behind Jerry drops his violin and is holding it at waist level while the song is still playing. Since he is the only violin player there is no way we should still be hearing it in the song.
