The Money Pit

Plot hole: Walter and Anna each agree to pay half of the $200,000 for the house. However, Walter borrows the full amount of $200,000 from Benny. He also didn't know the house was a lemon.

More quotes from The Money Pit

Question: Walter is discussing changing the name of Cheap Girls to Meryl Streep with a band member. When they say 'Meryl Streep,' their mouths are not in sync with the words. Do you know what the original name change was supposed to be, and why was it changed?

Answer: It looks like Meryl Streep the first time he says it but not the second.

Answer: I have watched this several times. It looks to me like he is saying Meryl Streep but the audio is just out of sync with the man's lips. Plus when Hanks says it, it matches Meryl Streep on his lips.
