Actually, Mel does that a few times during the movie and he also overdoes the Scottish accent in a few places. IMHO, I don't consider that a slip up. He does a far better job with his accent than Brad Pitt did in "The Devil's Own". Now that's a hoot and a half :) Granted, Pitt was consistant -- consistantly awful. Btw, I don't remember Gibson having a cold in the movie, so who the hiddley is "Hayebish"? The name is Hamish.

I agree - Mel's Scottish accent was fairly good and superior to most attempts at a Scottish accent. The ususal Scottish accent we hear from non-scottish actors is usually the Scottish/Irish 'one size fits all' accent.

Considering the fact that the characters wouldn't have been speaking with a Scottish accent like we are familiar with today (indeed, they wouldn't have even been speaking English at that time) I don't think this should be considered a slip up.
