    I haven't seen this movie in a LOOONG time, so I need to know if an apparent sound mistake has always been a problem or not. At the 52:44 point, when Tommy and his friends are trying on tuxedos, their dialogue briefly speeds up to Chipmunks tones. I initially thought this was intentional, but it makes no sense within the context of the scene.
    I checked other articles about the movie but found no mention of this issue. So what's the scoop: has this weird issue always been there for Carrie, or is it new to the SE?

    It's intentional, not a mistake.
    Although it's not a comedy, that scene is intended to be comic relief.

    I know the scene was comedic in tone, but it seemed odd that the audio was sped up for just a couple of lines, while the rest of it runs at normal speed. That's why I questioned it. Nonetheless, I'll accept it as being intentional if others say so - I certainly don't know the film well enough to judge...

    I've seen it a million times -- on tape, laserdisc, and DVD. The speeded up effect is absolutely intentional. Personally, I like it.
    When Kubrick speeds up sex scenes in "Clockwork Orange," it's hilarious and briliant. When DePalma does something similar in what's already a lighthearted scene, it's "stupid." Interesting double standard.
