Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Continuity mistake: Halfway through the film, when the turtles ask April to meet them on the rooftop, she is wearing a plain black top under her yellow jacket. In the next scene when the turtles have taken her to their lair, she is now wearing a light grey shirt with a symbol on it.

Continuity mistake: When Leonardo, April, and Vern are hanging from the cliff after the semi truck falls off. April's arm is dangling beside her. The next shot from above, she is hanging on to Leonardo and then her arm drops beside her to dangle. (01:15:10)

Christy Mcdannell

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the turtles are in the elevator singing MC Mikey, visible to the right of shot is the elevator's control panel and a light lights up every time they pass each floor. Just as the shot ends, the light lights up for floor 34. In the next shot, the elevator stops at floor 54.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: There is a scar/cut above Raph's top lip. Through out the movie, it is constantly switching sides of his mouth.

Quantom X Premium member

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Raphael, April and Vernon are breaking into Eric Sacks' mansion with the Channel 6 van, the guards begin firing at the van and in one shot the windscreen is fired at and it shatters. A few seconds later, the windscreen is suddenly intact and the damage is reduced to just a few bullet holes.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When April goes to the rooftop for the first time, the ladder is a normal ladder that abruptly ends. When it cuts to her taking the photo, it is a ladder that curves over and connects to the roof, then when she is brought away from it, it briefly goes back to a typical ladder.

Nicholas Mark Ross

Continuity mistake: As the semi stops on the mountain, the camera pulls back to show the down slope, and it has trees and rocks all over. But after the truck starts sliding down and turns around, it now has a clear path to slide through.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: After the turtles, April and Vernon escape from the Sacks compound in the 18 wheeler, the truck then get stuck in the snow. When they realize they start to slide backward down the hill, Vernon guns it. But then they show the wheels spinning on the Freightliner Argosy Cabover with a single axle. Next shot goes to inside the cab and then back to outside the truck, and it's back to a dual axle truck.

Continuity mistake: As April increases the injection of adrenaline, the counter goes fro zero to maximum twice between shots.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When the turtles return April to the roof after erasing the pictures off her phone, she takes more pictures holding her phone horizontally. Then, at Eric Sachs manor when she shows him the pictures, they are shown to have been taken in vertical mode.

Calvin Havercroft

Plot hole: When April O'Neil calls Vernon Fenwick (drives the channel 6 van), he answers his phone and immediately says "O'Neil". When the scene cuts back to O'Neil, we see she called from a payphone. Fenwick would have no way to know it was her calling.

Suggested correction: That isn't a plot hole. Vernon assumed April was the person calling him and was correct. People do this all the time in real life.
