In The Mailbag: Mansour G writes in “Yesterday I saw The Orient Express remake, and in the first scene (In Jerusalem) there is an actor shouting in Arabic, the said actor is Egyptian, and here is my gripe, the Egyptian-Arabic dialect sounds nothing like the one in Jerusalem. Couldn’t the producers do a cursory check on such a big budget movie? ... Does it annoy you to hear a person using the wrong dialect? I know that Boston and Philadelphia dialects are notoriously butchered in the United States, does it annoy you in anyway?”
