Batman and Robin

Deliberate mistake: When Barbara Wilson/Batgirl first arrives she is standing on a ledge beside the front door when Robin answers the door. She then exclaims, "Oh. Uncle Alfred." However she could not possibly have seen him, not just because of her angle, but also the fact it is after that statement that he first comes into view. (00:34:10)

Deliberate mistake: When Mr. Freeze freezes Robin, the diamond in Robin's hand is not frozen along with him so that Mr. Freeze can steal it.

Deliberate mistake: At the beginning when Batman and Robin are facing Freeze, Robin arrives and crashes through the wall with his motorcycle and leaves a shape in the wall that a motorcycle could possibly make. But, the next shot after Batman looks where Robin is still flying and about to land on his motorcycle, there is a huge bat shape in the broken wall. Obviously done for campy effect, but still a mistake regardless.

Deliberate mistake: During the opening battle scene, Mr. Freeze's gun gets stuck on top of a statue. Mr. Freeze then throws a chubby security guard up straight up into the air to knock his gun down. But it's completely wrong and defies the laws of physics. The security guard bumps the gun from the front, causing it to fall FORWARD and STRAIGHT DOWN, when in reality, the angle from which the guard smacked it in the front should have knocked the gun backwards even more. This reveals that the gun was just pulled down by a wire or was pushed forward from behind, as it completely defies the laws of physics and action/reaction.

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)

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.

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.
