The Karate Kid

Audio problem: In the external shot of "The Orient Express Restaurant" where Daniel's mum sits down and says, "Guess what? I'm going to be training as a manager.", her mouth isn't moving at all.

Audio problem: During the dance scene, when Ali and Daniel open the shower curtain prop and see the chicken running towards them, you hear Daniel say, "He's wild." But his lips do not match him saying that at all.

Audio problem: At the Country Club Dinner Dance, the band is playing the "Fascination Waltz", but the conductor's baton is at a faster tempo.

Audio problem: During the beach fight between Johnny and Daniel right at the time Daniel runs at Johnny and Johnny trips him for the FIRST TIME, you can see some of Johnny's friends holding Ali back as she yells, "Johnny, Stop It." But if you look close, it is easy to tell her lips aren't moving at that point.

Continuity mistake: We first see from the inside of the door (and therefore backwards) the instructions that Mr. Miyagi leaves for Daniel to paint the house. In the next shot we see the same note from the outside - from Daniel's viewpoint. Clearly they are two different notes. The left & right arrows switch directions, the drawings of the hands change, the position of Miyagi's signature changes, and the placement of some of the exclamation points changes.

Question: At the end of their date, Daniel and Ali run into some of her snobby friends who insult Daniel and drive off. Then Ali seems irritated at Daniel, but why? She's the one who is more laid back about their relationship and the fact that Daniel doesn't fit in with her friends. You'd think if anything she would try to reassure Daniel and say it's no big deal. So why is she mad at him, especially since he didn't say or do anything to make her so?

Chosen answer: She is irritated because he told her she could have gone with her friends if she wanted. I believe she got annoyed because Ali thought Daniel should have realized by now she wanted to be with him and didn't care what her friends thought.

Also, you have to take a look at the snobby friends involved. Johnny and Dutch, two of Daniel's tormentors, were in the front seat and another one, Tommy, was in the backseat with two of Ali's friends who have always looked down on him. This came on the heels of another of Ali's snobby but nicer friends chatting with the two of them from a brand new sports car. Not to mention that at the start of the evening he met Ali's parents who made him uncomfortable. Although it is true that she would have been irritated with Daniel because he hadn't figured out that she didn't care what her friends or parents thought, he couldn't see past the fact that Johnny and his friends were part of her circle. He believed that she would look down on him and wouldn't be any different, which she picked up on, sparking her irritation when he told her she could have gone with them if she wanted to.
