Basic Instinct (1992)

Audio problem: After Jeanne Tripplehorn is killed, Michael Douglas is back at the police station and Jack the Internal Affairs Investigator says to the black investigator, "No report from Berkeley, nothing at all about Salinas". If you look closely at his lips he's saying something else.

After the lovemaking scene, Roxy talks to him in the bathroom and we see the reflection of his back in the mirror. The scratches on his back are now much lower and not anywhere near the right place.
