I am doing an assignment and am supposed to indicate what is grammatically incorrect about the following sentence:
"Saw you the movie? "
Then I am supposed to offer suggestions about how to correct it. Any help is greatly appreciated.

What do you think might be wrong with the sentence?

@gabistephens,
The question would most commonly be phrased, "Did you see the movie", so the verb (saw) needs to be after the subject (you) and before the object (the movie) . Asked by using an inflection in your voice, it could also be "You saw the movie ?" which could also be a rhetorical question in that instance .
