The Nutty Professor

Audio problem: In the scene at the alumni ball right after Sherman's father says "That's strike three," to his wife, she begins to walk off and he starts saying gibberish things, his head is turned so that you can see his beard. Neither his cheeks nor beard are moving, even though you can hear him making those gibberish noises.

Continuity mistake: At the first family dinner scene, grandma starts coughing. The camera shows her from the front with a glass of water to drink. The camera then switches to the side and shows her with a glass of coke in front of her. Her daughter says "Momma drink some water" and suddenly it turns into a glass of water again.
