The Neverending Story picture

Audio problem: When Nighthob and Teeny are talking to the Rockbiter near the beginning of the film, Teeny says to Nighthob "This could be serious", then turns to Rockbiter and calls out his name. Watch Teeny's mouth as he calls out "Rockbiter". You will see a very blatant editing mistake as Teeny is not actually saying 'Rockbiter", but is saying the next line that follows. (00:16:40)

Romancing the Stone picture

Audio problem: When Jack digs for the statue in the puddle, and he hits it, it makes a sound like iron against ceramics, but the bunny statue is wrapped in hay and cloth. The wrapping is so thick that the spade would not be able to touch the statue, so it would make no sound at all when he hit it with the spade.
