Audio problem: When Will Smith is looking at the two space ships at the MIB headquarters, if you look in the background Zed and K are there typing on the computer. But if you look closer you can tell that they're not even touching the keyboard and the sounds are just added into the movie. (01:16:00)
Audio problem: When Rose is talking to Thomas Andrews, telling him to tell her the truth about what has happened, listen to the voices in the background. At one point in the scene you can hear someone saying "Yes madam, please put it on immediately", then someone laughs. Right at the end of the scene, the same line can be heard in exactly the same tone of voice, followed by the laugh Â it's obviously a loop. Although some tracks in the mix of the soundtrack do not loop at that moment, the track with the mentioned sentence does. (01:47:30)
Audio problem: Near the end of the film, when we see the Queen's new mutation, the scene opens up by showing all the scientists attached to the wall. Dr. Gediman is rambling on and on about the Queen's 'perfect' mutation. However, it is quite clear he isn't saying any of the words. In fact, from the way his mouth moves, it looks like he's literally saying 'blah blah blah, blah blah blah'. (01:27:05)
Audio problem: When the whole family is at the Siegfried and Roy show Clark is asked to participate and they make him disappear and he doesn?t come back. At one point Rusty says "I wonder where Dad went" and Ellen responds with "I don't have a clue". If you read Ellen?s lips she is actually saying "I don?t know" and waves her hands. (00:20:21)JamesP
Audio problem: When the troops are lined up on the fort's wall near the end preparing for the waves of bugs, Lt. Rasczak is walking at a fast pace behind them and shouts something before aiming his gun. Before he aims his gun, he is seen shouting the same thing as he walks past them, but there's no sound coming out of his mouth. (01:29:25)
Audio problem: When Baldwin writes to John Quincy Adams begging for help, Adams crumples up the letter and drops it to the floor. As it comes to rest, you can see the word "threatened" written above the words "need you". But in the voice-over reading the letter out loud, the word "threatened" is never spoken.Twotall
