The Parent Trap

Audio problem: When Annie is saying goodbye to her butler Martin and they perform their legendary handshake, Annie is the first to put her hand down when they stack their hands, however you hear a clapping sound.

Audio problem: In the scene where Hallie (pretending to be Annie) meets her mom for the first time, right after her mom says "No I absolutely love it" going to the next shot, you can see Hallie taking a breath. After she closes her mouth, you hear that breath.

Audio problem: Elizabeth said "grandmother" and it appears as though the word"grandfather" was dubbed in very poorly. There was a grandmother and grandfather in the original movie; but only a grandfather in the remake.

Suggested correction: Elizabeth actually said grand-ma-father, catching herself starting to say grandmother and changing it to grandfather. This mistake on her part was left in because they rationalized it as Elizabeth just being nervous about going on the trip.

Revealing mistake: When Hallie trashes Annie's cabin and the huge water balloon is about to fall on Annie's head, the camera is at a downward view and Annie clearly steps into the trail of the balloon instead of jumping away. (00:18:05)

Trivia: In the scene when Hallie (playing as Annie) and Liz (the mom) are walking to the photo shoot, they're walking across the street. It goes into a freeze frame while playing 'Here Comes The Sun', that was a Beatles song and the Beatles took a picture in those exact poses.

Question: When Hallie and her mom are on the way to the studio, they are showing crossing the street. On the road behind them, the white lines are zigzagged at the beginning. Why are they like this?
