Does the same audio stream sound okay when played with at least one of
'-ac mp3', '-ac ffmp3', '-ac mp3acm'?  If it does, then there's probably
a problem with libmad.  Try extracting the MP3 audio stream and playing
it with madplay:

$ mplayer -dumpaudio -dumpfile audiostream.mp3 movie.filename
$ madplay -owave:audiostream.wav audiostream.mp3
(Use your favourite audio player to play the output WAV file)

If it still sounds wrong, then check
http://www.underbit.com/products/mad/ for updates and instructions on
how to report bugs there.

If madplay's output sounds okay, then there may indeed be a problem with 
mplayer, in which case you should go to  http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/ , 
select your preferred language, and read appendix B on reporting bugs.
