X-Men - Where's Rogue From?!?
Rogue has a very strong Southern accent early on in the movie. By the end of the movie she is speaking comfortably in a neutral Midwestern accent.

Actually, this may not really be a slip up. Rogue's power allows her to absorb the life-force of other people, including their powers, memories etc (as she say, she could still feel the first boy she kissed in her mind, and after the bout with wolverine at the end, Sotrm commented she had picked up a few of Logan's more colorful character traits.) Wolverine doesn't have an accent, she absorbs from him twice, Magneto is very well enunciated, and she absorbs a lot from him too. It's quite possible that her exposure to these two people on such an intimate level lessened her accent considerably.

I don't know if this is considered valid, but keep in mind Anna Paquin has a New Zealand accent, so if she was going to just not use an accent, it'd be definitely foreign.

I agree with Jadeh.She definitely absorbed the accents from others I mean she did spend a fair bit of time with all the other kids in the school.so she was'nt just absorbing the accents of magneto and wolverine.This si definitely not a slip up!!

Maybe she wanted to lose the southern accent, so she tried not to have it. It's not that hard to change your accent.

Maybe Jade´s right. It´s pretty easy to change your dialect or accent when your speaking partners or surroundings change. Rogue gave up her whole life when she ran away. The academy surely became some kind of new family for her. Why wouldn´t she change her accent at this point as well?

This is a slip up. Rogue can absorb abilities, memories, etc, but accents have never come into it before. Did no one ever watch the cartoon as a kid? You wouldn't be able to tell from the comics, but no, Rogue's accent change cannot be attributed to her mutant abilities.

That thought had occurred, but she absorbs primarily the energies of Wolverine and Magneto...neither one of which have a Midwestern accent as she does at the end. Shouldn't she sound (kinda) Canadian or European (or Australian, in Hugh Jackson's case)?

But when she speaks to Wolverine earlier up in Canada, she has a Southern accent. When she speaks to him later at the Academy, she has a Midwestern accent. Why would she use different accents for the _same person_?

I think that you're all forgetting how difficult it is to do accents if your not a native to the particular region where said accent comes from. Maybe she just didn't find it so easy as you do to distinguish between the two accents, southern and Midwest, even with a dialogue coach. Please keep in mind no one's perfect.

I don´t think that this is a real slip up. I´m personally speaking with at least two (non-American) accents, depending on the person I´m talking to. At work, I always use a more correct, accent-free language, whether with friends it´s almost dialect I´m using. Why wouldn´t Rogue do so as well?

It wasn't Storm who said that it was Jean. She said it while she was checking his wounds.
