The Lizzie McGuire Movie picture

Audio problem: When Lizzie is performing at the end of the movie at the awards show, at the part where we see her from the back facing the blue light, her voice sounds like it's changing. It seems like it's someone much older singing, or the synthesizer went wrong. It just obviously isn't Lizzie's voice anymore.

The Matrix Revolutions picture

Audio problem: As the trio break into the club, they take on some bouncers. One of them gets his gun turned on him by Trinity, pushed right into his chest - we hear two gunshots, with corresponding wounds, then a third shot which has no effect. (00:14:50)

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl picture

Audio problem: Barbossa hits Jack in the face and we 'hear' the distinct sound of Jack hitting the ground, though we don't see him actually hit the ground. We do however, see him start to go down and Barbossa yells, "Aaaah," and he starts to go after Jack. In the next shot, Barbossa, who is still yelling, "Aaaah," is behind a running Jack. If Jack did fall he could not have been up and running while Barbossa yells. At editing, they inserted the sound of Jack hitting the ground, for dramatic effect, even though visually in the next shot, we see Jack running immediately after being hit, while Barbossa yells behind him. (01:57:20)

The Last Samurai picture

Audio problem: Every time a sword is drawn, be it fast or slow, there is the 'shiiink' sound that is made when a steel sword is drawn from a steel scabbard (a sound that a western sword would make), yet Japanese swords have a wooden scabbard so the draw should be silent.

Finding Nemo picture

Audio problem: When Marlin and Dory swim into the deepest part of the ocean to reclaim their mask, they see a light (which we know later, belongs to an angler fish). They stop right underneath the light and says "What is it?" but his mouth doesn't match the movements. It looks as though the animators had Albert Brooks (Marlin's voice actor) say a different line than what was animated.
