Thank God It's Friday picture

Audio problem: Near the end of the film, when the Commodores finally go on stage with their equipment, Bobby Speed announces them from inside the control booth. But the movement of his mouth does not match the audio (you have to look at his reflection in the glass wall).

Hooper picture

Audio problem: Right after Hooper says "Bye bye, nice officer." and activates the rocket system, the cop driving beside them screams "Great God almighty.". Watch the cop's rear view mirror when he yells that - it's a completely different person in the mirror and his mouth doesn't move at all, much less yell "Great God almighty." But when he calls "Headquarters. never mind", on the radio, the original cop is shown again.
