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.

The One picture

Audio problem: When the MVA agents confront Yulaw in the hospital, Funsch locks in on Yulaw's right shoulder first. His gun's sights show up, being blue, and then turn red. There is a sound that the gun makes before the sight vanishes. The shots change, and you hear the sound end while the site is off screen showing the scared doctor. Then, several seconds later, it shows Roedecker's gun lock in on Yulaw's left shoulder, and the sound happens as the blue site turns red, and vanishes. However, the site from Funsch's gun is still on Yulaw visible and red, only now vanishing. The sound it made already indicating that it was gone, but it wasn't. (00:33:25)

Suggested correction: I'm watching it and the scene is synced just fine. As soon as Jones opens his mouth, you hear him say "what is that cherry." Then the shot cuts to Leah and you hear him say "stank."
