Lionheart picture

Audio problem: Near the middle of the movie, in the scene when Van Damme's friend Joshua is taking Helene money, you see that the military police have set up a surveillance across the street. They show the policeman's point of view as he is looking through binoculars. You can hear Joshua spray breath freshener into his mouth. The window is closed and they are too far away to hear this on a busy street.

Coupe de Ville picture

Audio problem: When the professor is walking out toward the car after Bobby yells at his house, Bobby says, "You're joking with me," but if you watch his mouth, you can tell that he really said, "You're f - -ing with me." The original line was probably cut during editing to keep the PG-13 rating, but it's still a problem.
