Galaxy Quest

Audio problem: When Commander Taggert (Tim Allen) and Lt. Madison (Sigourney Weaver) first see the hallway with the chompers, she says, "Oh, screw that!" but if you watch her lips she clearly uses the 'f' word instead of 'screw'.

Audio problem: When Mathesar says "We need to separate or we'll die," his mouth doesn't move for "We need to separate."

Audio problem: When Gwen uses her Gilligan's Island analogy, Mathesar says, "Those poor people," and then Tommy says, "Oh brother." We are then shown Guy standing next to Gwen, and Guy says "We're screwed," although if you watch his mouth he actually says something like, "We're dead." This dub is probably for a similar reason to that of why Gwen and Tommy's swearing was dubbed over.

Audio problem: After Sarris' first missile has hit the ship, Jason runs towards Tommy and shouts, "Tommy, let's go, get us outta here, go go go go go." However, what we hear is not in sync with Jason's mouth until the last 'go'.

Audio problem: In the early backstage scenes from the convention, the other actors are angry at Tim Allen's character. The actor who plays Laredo clearly says "You are so full of sh*t", but it is edited to "full of it." Those two word edits ('s' word and 'f' word) were done to keep the PG rating, but the editing is sloppy. [This theory could also be expanded to the drug reference mentioned above].

Audio problem: When the aliens are talking to Taggart at his house, in a shot from behind the aliens looking at Taggart in the doorway, the audio is out of sync with the alien leader's mouth. You can see this when he says the word "destruction."

Audio problem: When Brandon's parents are listening to the news reporter talk about the crew not showing up to the convention, his words don't match his mouth at the end of the shot.

Audio problem: When they are rolling the beryllium sphere into the ship, Laredo is heard yelling, but his mouth isn't moving.

Deliberate mistake: When Commander Taggert and Lt. Madison are about to press the blue button to stop the ship exploding, Lt. Madison's tunic is mostly zipped up. A few seconds later it is suddenly mostly unzipped. Those of you who have access to the DVD of the film can see that there was a deleted scene which was originally intended to go in here where she unzips her tunic to distract the aliens.

Guy Fleegman: I'm not even supposed to be here! I'm just "Crewman Number Six"! I'm expendable! I'm the guy in the episode who dies to prove how serious the situation is! I've gotta get outta here!

Question: At the end of the film, Malthazar says "The ship was a model as big as this - a very clever deception indeed." Does he mean that the Thermians now accept they were decieved by the "historical documents", or does he still believe the "documents" were real and the Captian was deceiving Sarris by pretending to admit they were false?

Chosen answer: He thinks that the Captain was just tricking Sarris and the "documents" were real.
