Batman and Robin

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?

Plot hole: Water is produced when you melt ice, right? So where is all the water when Batman, Robin and Batgirl thaw out Gotham City? No way everything got hot enough to vapourise the water without also destroying the city.

Plot hole: When Robin and Batgirl are defrosting the mirrors on the telescope, don't you think that at least some of the beams would reflect back at them?

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?

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.
