Corpse Bride

Victor Van Dort (Johnny Depp) goes to drink from the poison to be with the corpse bride Emily (Helena Bonham Carter), but the corpse bride sees Victoria Everglot (Emily Watson) all sad and tells him not to do it. She says they should be together and the corpse bride does not want to take Victoria's happiness away like hers was taken. Barkis Bittern enters the church and says that won't happen because he and Victoria are still married. He goes to take a sip of the cup (not knowing it's poison) and dies. The corpse bride, realizing that Barkis was the one who killed her yells at him and goes after him. Before she can get to him the dead townspeople want at him first. The movie ends with Victoria and Victor kissing and Emily is free of her sorrow.

Corpse Bride mistake picture

Audio problem: In the scene where Victor plays the piano for the first time in the movie, we hear him playing long, sustained notes, which obviously need to be played with a pedal down. However, he doesn't use the sustain pedal. What's more strange is, the piano does not even have a sustain pedal.
