Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith picture

Audio problem: After the buzz droids land on Obi-Wan's starfighter, Obi-Wan says, "I'm hit. Anakin?" As he says, "Anakin?" his head is turned to the side, but you can see that the last word doesn't quite fit his lips or the motion of his jaw. (00:05:10)

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe picture

Audio problem: When they're standing on the breaking ice, as Peter points his sword at Maugrim, Susan shouts, "Look, just because some man in a red coat hands you a sword doesn't make you a hero. Just drop it." In the very next shot (we still see Susan's profile, despite the side shot), Susan's lips/jaw are moving, but nothing is heard, which occurs just as Peter quickly glances at her and we also hear Beaver shout, "No, Peter!" (01:14:15)

Drake and Josh Go Hollywood picture

Audio problem: Near the end when Drake is playing Hollywood Girl and gets into the bridge (the steady drum beat part) you can obviously tell he's mouthing the words.

The World is Not Enough picture

Audio problem: When Bond arrives at the King Industries place where he meets Elektra King, watch the man he talks to when he gets out of his car. It is painfully obvious that the man's mouth is not in sync with what he is saying. Even worse, the voice is not even his. It is slightly higher-pitched than the man's real voice when he finally talks right.

The Lion King II: Simba's Pride picture

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets picture

Audio problem: Hermione takes her wand out in the shot facing her, Harry and Ron, and Hermione's mouth begins to shout the "I" in "Immobulus!" though no sound is heard. It is in the next close-up that she dramatically shouts out the entire word, "Immobulus!" (00:37:40)

You Only Live Twice picture

Audio problem: In the volcano's control room, there is a husky guy in red uniform whose only purpose is to open and close the crater. Every time he opens or closes the crater he says with a deep voice, "opening crater, closing crater." When Bond kills him with the rocket cigarette to open the crater and let the ninjas in, and the guards have subdued Bond, the guard in white uniform who closes the crater says, "closing crater," and you can hear that it's the dead husky guy's voice.

Transformers picture

Audio problem: Before they leave for Mission City, Lennox tells Keller, "Sir, you gotta figure out some way to get word out..." Then in the next shot, as Lennox shouts, "Let's move!" his mouth stays open - not forming the "m" with his lips to produce the word "move", which we hear very clearly (it looks as if he really said, "Let's go!"). Changes in dialogue are done during ADR and often are not in sync with mouth movements seen onscreen. (01:45:45)

Audio problem: The carts the guards are chasing Pee-Wee in are electric, which we see when they first get to them and have to unplug them. However throughout the entire chase scene we distinctly hear gas engine sound effects. (01:12:30)

The Adventures of Ford Fairlane picture

Audio problem: In the opening scene when the band Black Plague is performing, the audio is out of sync and the drums aren't playing what they should be. When playing the cowbell the drummer is hitting the hi-hat, and so on. Also when hitting the snare it's out of sync, Bobby Black is also missing some notes. And when the backing vocals are heard no-one is singing. (00:01:45)
