Weekend at Bernie's

Audio problem: When Gwen is getting hit on by the drunk guy who says "nice outfit", the lines for both drunks have been poorly dubbed over and don't match their mouths.


Audio problem: When Larry and Richard are hiding behind the couch when they hear gun shots, you see the gun making its way around the corner of the couch and when you hear the next gun shot, you can see that the kid holding the gun is not even squeezing the trigger.


Audio problem: When Richard falls off the boat, you hear him say "Why is this happening to me" but his lips never move.


Audio problem: When the two guys break out of the closet and run down the hallway, they're shouting at Richard and Larry, but their lips aren't moving.


Audio problem: At the beginning when Larry and Richard come into the building, the security guard asks Larry if it's hot enough, and we hear a reply. But their lips don't match what they said and, for the most part, neither are actually seen talking. Plus, it sounds like Richard (Jonathan Silverman) who replies.


Audio problem: After Bernie falls off the back of the boat, he hits the channel markers as they go past, ringing the bells at the top. The boat passes the last one, but the ring of the bell is too early. It took a second or two after passing for a bell to be rung for the previous markers. However, for the last one, it rings just as soon as they pass it. There aren't any other rings after that.

Audio problem: After missing the boat (when their shoelaces are tied to Bernie's), Larry and Richard start arguing. At one paint, Larry says, "Why can't you be a lazy shit like I am?" However, his lips seem to say, "Why can't you be a lazy fuck like I am?"

Continuity mistake: Right before Richard discovers that Bernie is dead and Larry is talking about drugs becoming a career, "I watch the news. I read." There is a side/back view of Larry talking and neither his gestures or his mouth line up with what he is saying.

Question: What did Pauley say before he shot Bernie sitting on the steps?

Answer: He says the Italian word "cornuto." Basically insulting Bernie for sleeping with Vito's girlfriend, which is why the hit was put on him in the first place.
