A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge

Audio problem: When Jesse and Ron are doing press-ups on the sports field, Ron says "So what about you and that rich babe you've been cruising to school with every day?" You can see that Ron starts to move his mouth a few seconds after the words are spoken, and his mouth doesn't move correctly to the words being spoken either. (00:10:30)

Revealing mistake: When the crazy bird is let out of the cage it starts flying around. Then it explodes in mid-air. A split-second before it explodes you can clearly see the size of the bird increase by about three times. (00:28:15)

More quotes from A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge

Trivia: This film is notorious for having undertones and themes that many perceive as homoerotic, and the events of the film are often perceived by critics as a personification of the lead character Jesse being tormented by being "in the closet" and unable to be true to himself. While the makers of the film initially denied that this subtext was intentional, screenwriter David Chaskin recently admitted that the subtext was intentionally written into the script in order to give the characters and story depth.

Question: What was up with the coach's death? Was Freddy trying to rape him or something?

Answer: I think the coach's death was a play on his character being at a S&M bar. People who frequent those places are usually into bondage and being dominated. Hence being tied up, and whipped with the towel. It also fits in with the homoerotic subtext throughout the movie.
