...for knowing English. It's a little annoying to see the language butchered by amateurs, but it's intolerable when it crops up in (presumably edited) professional ad copy.
On the back of the "Five Star Collection" edition of Speed on DVD is this whoopsie:
KEANU REEVES stars as an L.A.P.D. SWAT team specialist who is sent to diffuse a bomb...(emphasis added)
Well, I suppose if he detonated it, that would be an example of diffusion.
Actually, I believe that Keanu's character was supposed to defuse the bomb.
