The Lion King 1½ picture

Audio problem: When Timon and Pumbaa awake from their first dream home by the rocks, they look up to see the animals towering and singing "I just can't wait to be king", but their mouths don't match the words of the song. They are actually out of sync by a few seconds because in the first Lion King movie the chorus was already sung at this point.

Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid picture

Audio problem: Just after the captain of the other boat (Bill's friend) breaks the bottle, and looks over the side, you hear a voice say "What the hell was that" although the guy's mouth doesn't move, also the voice sounds more like Bill's low voice than this guy's Australian-sounding accent.

King Arthur picture

Audio problem: When the Woads attack in the beginning of the movie, after the knights have pretty much won the day, Bors hold up his fist knives, sticks out his tounge, and yells a sort-of war victory yell which sounds rather comedic. At the end of the movie when the knights and their horses charge into the Saxons out of the fog, you can hear Bors' exact same yell once again.

Suggested correction: When the Woads attack in the beginning of the movie, after the knights have pretty much won the day, Bors hold up his fist knives, sticks out his tongue, and yells his war cry: "Rus!". At the end of the movie when the knights and their horses charge into the Saxons out of the fog, the audio of Bors' exact same yell is used once again. The Rus were one of the two main tribes that the Romans called 'Sarmatians'. They were Norsemen who had settled near what became known as the Rus River (in modern-day Romania), who later settled Russia, Belarus, and Ruthenia, all of which took their names from the Rus. The repeated cry of "Rus!" in the film is meant to show that the Sarmatian knights had retained their cultural identity throughout their years of forced service, making their final sacrifice in a foreign land a true act of courage and honor as opposed to an order from the Romans.

The Day After Tomorrow picture

Audio problem: The pitch of an airliner's engine doesn't change dramatically when going through rough turbulence. In the scene with the turbulence - after all is quiet, it almost sounds as if the engines are shut down. And it happens way to fast for it to be the pilots doing it. And why would the pilots speed up when entering turbulence?

Eurotrip picture

Audio problem: When the four friends are in a French restaurant and Scotty, Cooper, and Jenny are trying to persuade Jamie to join them on their quest to Germany, Scotty's line is heard as "I Love Denmark," but his mouth forms the words "I Love Amster," as if he was in the process of saying Amsterdam before the shot changed.

Van Helsing picture

Audio problem: In the scene where the monster saves Anna by knocking down the last Bride, there is one shot where he turns to look at Anna framed in the window. His right leg support makes the hissing sound without any steam coming out of it.

Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation picture

Audio problem: At the end, as Dax rescues Sahara and loads her into the evac shuttle, he steps away from the craft. Bugs are swarming the scene, but it is apparent that Dax is staying behind. Sahara cries out, "You stay here, you die!" and we hear Dax reply, "Murderers don't go home," which is an overdub. His mouth visibly says something very different with several more syllables.
