Speed

Audio problem: When Jack tells the bad guy he wants to get off the bus, he says "it's not against the rules." The bad guy then says "All right, but I want you back real fast." Look at his mouth while he says the line. You can see that the talking isn't similar to the moving mouth. (01:07:40)

Audio problem: When Jack and Harry are running down the stairs to get to the elevator Harry radios his lieutenant and says "Mac we need more help up here now", but his mouth does not appear to be saying these words when it is visible.

Audio problem: As Payne cries "My Money!" when shooting at Jack, who is on top of the train, his mouth doesn't match what he is saying. (01:38:50)

Mister Ed

Audio problem: When Keanu Reeves is talking to Dennis Hopper on the phone, and Keanu is asking to be let off the bus to help him, Dennis says "I want you back real fast." But that looks to be a redub from the original line "I want you back, you son of a bitch." (01:07:40)

Speed mistake picture

Revealing mistake: If you look at the missing part of the bridge, and look at the shadow underneath, the shadow is of a full bridge. (01:02:35)

Suggested correction: This might be correct, but it depends on the sun's position. If the sun is to the far left of the shot, the gap in the shadow would appear somewhere far to the right of where the actual gap is.

Nice try. Look at the shadows of the bridge trestles and those on the small brown building to the right of the photo. The sun is to the left of the bridge, and the shadow is exactly what you would expect to see if the bridge was complete - which it was, by the way. The "gap" is CGI.

More quotes from Speed

Trivia: The famous "Dukes of Hazzard" sequence was the filmmakers' wry commentary on the uncompleted state of Interstate 105, which had become a running joke among LA motorists. It was finally (and quite uncoincidentally) completed in late 1993 shortly before the film's release, years behind schedule.
