Batman and Robin

Revealing mistake: When Mr. Freeze knocks out the two guards after being released from the fridge, one of the guards falls against the fridge causing it to wobble. A big heavy fridge like that should not wobble. (00:55:30)

THGhost

Revealing mistake: When Batman places the heaters around the telescope to thaw the ice, the frozen floor moves like plastic when he places the second heater. (01:45:00)

THGhost

Revealing mistake: When Robin is being pulled underwater by Ivy's plants he surfaces for air and gets pulled under again. It's obvious the film was just rewound. Then when he finaly gets free we see the shot that was rewound was the same shot used when he escapes. Really bad editing. (01:34:50 - 01:36:40)

Batman and Robin mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Robin steps foot into Poison Ivy's lair she is laid out on her flower bed. If you look at the sleeves of her costume, the ends of the sleeves are fringed in a simple leaf like design. Robin spurns Poison Ivy's affections, and an enfuriated Ivy pushes him into the lily pad pool. She is then confronted by Batman, and a soon to arrive Batgirl. Now - look at the huge, obvious, black rubber "thorn" bracelets that suddenly appear on each of her wrists. (01:37:25)

Revealing mistake: When Freeze is freezing the town, the cop car that crashed into the store has flexible icicles on the driver side door. Also when the city is being defrosted, when the cop comes out of the car, the icicles are very wobbly. (01:38:15 - 01:48:15)

Batman and Robin mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the observatory, when Bruce gives Dr. Isley's (Poison Ivy) proposal back. She grabs it with the printed part toward her, but in the next shot, she's holding the paper with the painted part facing away from her. (00:37:10)

Continuity mistake: When Poison Ivy is talking to herself when she is leaving the observatory, you can notice that the policemen she pushed away have vanished in the background.

Other mistake: While fighting Mr. Freeze (and Bane) at the Gotham Observatory, Batman, Robin & Batgirl all have batsuits on, with silver bat (or robin) symbols on their chest. But while they are giving Alfred the cure to Stage 1 of McGregor's Syndrome, for some reason they have changed clothes before giving him the cure. Because now (other than the fact that they have all taken off their masks) Robin has on his original robin suit (with the red robin symbol across his chest) and Batgirl has on a gray t-shirt. (01:55:25 - 01:56:15)

Factual error: Why is there a stellar observatory in the middle of a very large city, most of the stars would be drowned out by the city lights to the point of the observatory being useless. Also, the dome is very high up on top of a "building". Such buildings need to flex a little bit in the wind to keep them from breaking, this would make it impossible for the telescope to focus on anything for a timed exposure of film to make those neat pictures of galaxies and such. (00:35:20)

Other mistake: When Mr. Freeze threatens to freeze all of Gotham City, he has a big snowglobe in his hand. He freezes the snowglobe, then shatters it in is hand. When he crushes it open with his hand, the inside of the snowglobe is empty. There is no water, frozen or unfrozen, that comes out of the snowglobe when it breaks. (01:23:50)

Revealing mistake: After Arnie freezes Robin, then freezes the doorway, then wipes his hand on the ice to wave goodbye to our hero, you can see that the clear spot is there before he wipes it with his hand. (00:13:50)

Continuity mistake: The first confrontation with Mr. Freeze and his henchman involves them skating around a large ice covered area. The henchman are not using ice skates, but rollerblades. In the same scene we see ice skating blades pop out of Batman and Robin's boots, but when we actually see them skating, they are on rollerblades as well. (00:06:45)

Continuity mistake: In Dr. Woodrue's lab, two thugs carry Antonio Diego over to an experiment table and chain him to it. The thug on Diego's left has a cowboy hat on. However, just as that thug is pulling Diego's mask over Diego's head a few shots later, the thug's cowboy hat is gone. This same thug also disappears from the aerial shots of the lab as Dr. Woodrue is exclaiming over his genius of turning Diego into Bane, a super soldier, with Venom. Later, when Bane breaks free of his restraints, the thug just shows up out of nowhere to try to hold Bane down. (00:16:00)

Plot hole: When Freeze freezes the furnace after his plummet from the sky, why doesn't the pool of water that Batman puts Robin in freeze as well?

Other mistake: Apparently, guessing Alfred's password also turns computer monitors into projectors. Before Barbara guesses the password, none of the light/information on the monitor reflects off her, but afterwards, she might as well be a projector screen.

Batman and Robin mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Freeze bends down to kiss his wife right before his accident, there is a tube of some sort behind her (in the distance), then as he kisses her the tube is gone. (00:20:15)

Other mistake: When Antonio Diego is being pumped up with Venom in Dr. Woodrue's lab, the tubes attached to the prisoner's head keep disappearing. It's in the shot where the camera pans from the foot of the exam table to Diego's (Bane's) right side. (00:16:50)

Continuity mistake: In the car on the way to the observatory, Pamela Eisley puts on a perfectly straight-haired and slightly red/pink colored wig. But when she is at the observatory, her wig is brown, has numerous fly-aways and has long bits on the sides. (00:32:50 - 00:34:40)

Revealing mistake: When Batman puts a frozen Robin in the water, you can easily tell it's a dummy/model of some sort. Obviously it's not Chris O'Donnell, but it hardly looks even remotely real. (00:14:00)

Continuity mistake: As Batman, Robin and Batgirl are heading to the Gotham Observatory to confront Mr. Freeze in their new Bat-Vehicles, a Frostbite piloting Mr. Freeze's Freezemobile meets them, crashing into two cars blocking the Freezemobile's way. The two cars the Freezemobile crashed into are gone in a later aerial shot of the Freezemobile having its freeze ray reflected back at it by Batman's shield.

Robin: I want a car! Chicks dig the car.
Batman: This is why Superman works alone.

Question: How was Pamela Isley aka Poison Ivy able to fight Batgirl with martial arts-like skills towards the end of the movie? Pamela was a doctor and I highly doubt given her obsession with her research she had the time to take martial arts lessons in her spare time, if she had any during her stay in South America. Even after she transformed into Poison Ivy, her transformation could not have given her martial arts skills since her powers are based on plant abilities.

Answer: There's no way of knowing whether or not she "had the time" to study martial arts. Regardless of her studies, she could have made time to pursue this as an extra-curricular activity. Universities can have classes, clubs, competitions, and student groups for martial arts on campus that anyone can participate in. She may also have been studying it since childhood. She was also a botanist, so even with a rigorous academic schedule, she would likely have more free time than a medical student.

Answer: That and they had to have the women fight in here. I mean they couldn't have the guys hit her now could they? So it was necessary for her to fight competently at least.

Rob245

Exactly, and that's a point I make again and again that things happen in movies because it's required to make the plot to work, not because it reflects real life.
