Jurassic Park III picture

Audio problem: After the aeroplane crashed, a dinosaur stepped over it and the windows shattered making the typical sound of made-of-glass things when broken. They are made of plexiglass (a sort of fibrous plastic).

Legally Blonde picture

Audio problem: In the scene after Reese Witherspoon and Luke Wilson are returning from questioning the ex-wife of the murder victim at a spa, they are driving up in Luke's car. You can clearly see, as they get closer to the camera, that what you hear Luke saying isn't what his lips are saying. It was a very obvious dub over...and a very bad one.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring picture

Audio problem: When Arwen and Aragorn are talking on the bridge, you see Arwen's lips moving while Aragorn is speaking. When you zoom in you can see that Arwen's mouth is definitely moving as she is talking animatedly, both when neither character has any dialogue and when Aragorn's voice says 'I thought I had strayed into a dream'. (01:32:15)

The Score picture

Audio problem: Nick uses the periscope camera through the grate of the basement floor. There is first a shot of the camera poking out and that is followed by a shot of a hand-held screen accompanied by a camera zoom sound as he zooms. Generally the zoom sound would come from the camera itself rather than the screen and a camera that size is not likely to make a electronic zoom sound of that amplitude. (00:43:20)

Hannibal picture

Audio problem: A mistake with one of the audio tapes: They mixed the dialogue of two scenes in Silence of the Lambs, you can hear Lecter saying "you have not more vacations to bargain" which happens in the cell from which he escapes, and following that sentence asks "what it will be? quid pro quo, poor Catherine is waiting" and other lines that are from the scene when Lecter is still at the glass cell, the first time Clarice gives him the fake offer from the Senator. (00:37:06)

Audio problem: When Hubert and Yumi agree that Hubert will tell her if he finds out anything, they shake hands. However the clap sound of their hands grabbing each other isn't entirely in synch. (00:40:00)

Mean Machine picture

Audio problem: When Bill (the guy that sucks in the game but at the end makes the third goal) is showing with the Monk how to attack the other team, he has a lot of pain at the end of this show. When the man that explains everybody how to do this, says "Number 24", Bill says "I can't" because he has a lot of pain, but obviously that "I can't" has been dubbed over.

From Hell picture

Audio problem: Near the beginning of the film Katie Eddowes tells Mary Kelley 'There's one over there'. As she walks past Martha Tabram and Annie Chapman, we hear some dialogue between them about not having very much luck that night. If you look at all three women, their mouths are not matching the dialogue. They appear to be saying something completely different.

Audio problem: In the club scene toward the beginning of the movie, Kelly and Basin are talking to her brother Felix. Kelly says "Come on, there's a guy over there who says he'll pierce our navels for free." But if you look closely, you can see that Kelly actually says "pierce our nipples for free."

Not Another Teen Movie picture

Audio problem: After Reggie Ray is in the coma, they tape him to two players and one of them (the one on Reggie's right) makes an obscene comment, which is spoken with amazing clarity though he has a mouthpiece in. His lips are obviously not in sync with what he says.
