Batman and Robin

Factual error: There are many instances in this movie where ice is doing things that ice doesn't do in the real world. Examples include Mr. Freeze freezing the pipes to make a hole in the wall, ice making things crumble all of a sudden, or something shattering easily just because a vehicle drives through something that is covered in ice.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Poison Ivy first enters the Turkish Bath she is wearing a green top, tights and boots but as she is redecorating just after ejecting the gang members she now has brown tights and high heels. (00:59:10)

Plot hole: Batman shows Freeze the video of Ivy confessing to killing his wife. However, at the time Ivy confessed, Batman was being strangled by vines and would not have been able to record the video.

Plot hole: After Freeze blasts Robin with his cold ray he just picks the diamond out of his hand with no problem. Why didn't the diamond freeze along with Robin?

Continuity mistake: When Bat Girl and Poison Ivy are fighting by the lily pad pond nowhere can you see Robin who is still supposedly fighting the vines underneath it.

Revealing mistake: When Batman is snagged by Poison Ivy's vines and pulled up to the ceiling, you can see that the sides of his cape are attached to his thighs by black strings, to keep his cape from falling completely down over his head during the shot.

Revealing mistake: In one scene where our heroes are defrosting Gotham city using the sunlight, we see Commissioner Gordon stepping from his car which has been covered in flexible icicles.

Factual error: If everyone had been frozen for that length of time, their blood would crystallise, which would kill them. I imagine some of the buildings and anything made of glass might crack as well, but I don't really know about that.

Continuity mistake: When Bruce and Julie go to the party in the observatory and are swamped by people, in the overhead shot at the start of the scene we can see that Gossip Gerty is trying to get to Bruce and Julie and that there is a man between Gerty and Julie. However, in the next shot (a tighter shot of the couple and onlookers), Gerty is suddenly right next to Julie, in the place where the man had been, with no time for him to move.

Continuity mistake: In the last fight against Bane, Bane has got Robin and Batgirl by their throats against an icy wall. In a close-up of Batgirl, Batgirl's right hand is near Bane's spiked wrist guard. However, in the very next shot, her right hand is more near Bane's elbow.

Revealing mistake: While Ivy is fighting Batgirl you can see the stunt double replacing Uma Thurman.

Continuity mistake: Bane is pulling Robin and Batgirl but in the next shot he's pushing them.

Revealing mistake: When Batman is doing his little sliding stunt on the dinosaur exhibit when he and Freeze meet at the beginning, it's obvious that he has roller skates on. (00:05:10)

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.

Character mistake: Julie Madison, when having dinner with Bruce Wayne, says that he just called her Ivy. He didn't, and never does in that scene.

Other mistake: During the end credits when the listing for the vehicles go by, it shows "BATMOBILE, FREEZEMOBILE REDBIRD, BATHAMMER, BATSKIFF, and BATCYCLE BY TFX." There should be a comma between Freezemobile and Redbird. (02:02:05)

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.

Poison Ivy: I must confess, the combination of heroic derring-do and anatomically-correct rubber suit puts fire in a girl's lips.
Batman: Why do all the gorgeous ones have to be homicidal maniacs? Is it me?

Question: How does Ivy get Nora's snowflake necklace without getting her costume soaked in the cyro fluid or whatever it is?

Rob245

Answer: Maybe she drained the cryo-tube first? Maybe she did get wet but had dried off by the time we see her again? Maybe Bane did it for her? Pick whatever answer works best for you. It's a really small, insignificant detail in the film with plenty of potential answers.

TedStixon

Thanks though keep in mind she wouldn't have a clue as to how it works since she's a botanist not a scientist in cyro genetics.

Rob245

She pulled the plug on the thing so Nora died and the tank drained (either automatically or Ivy did it). She just took the necklace off the body.

lionhead

Answer: She most likely used her mind control potion on someone and had them do it for her.
