Mrs. Doubtfire picture

Audio problem: During the final court case scene at the end of the film, Miranda's lawyer turns to her and says, 'Congratulations'. The lawyer's head is turned away from our view slightly, but you can see that she doesn't move her mouth.

Titanic picture

Audio problem: When Rose is talking to Thomas Andrews, telling him to tell her the truth about what has happened, listen to the voices in the background.

Right at the end of the scene, the same line can be heard in exactly the same tone of voice, followed by the laugh - it's obviously a loop. Although some tracks in the mix of the soundtrack do not loop at that moment, the track with the mentioned sentence does. (01:47:30)
