Article: "The 5 Stupidest Ways Movies Deal With Foreign Languages"

Here's a Cracked article that I came across and that may spark someone's interest out here.

LINK - "The 5 Stupidest Ways Movies Deal With Foreign Languages"

I never thought that was the point of #4 (That if the English is spoken with an accent, assume that it's spoken in the language that the accent sounds like to you and just go with it} and I found the #3 one interesting - the point brought up that if the universal translator exists, why is the mouth of the foreign speaker perfectly matching English?

I also bring a question: Are there movies out there that accurately convey another foreign language? Is this a problem with films outside of North America {as the examples given, I believe, are US and Canada? }
