Continuity mistake: Just before Batman takes his mask off at the end, the black makeup around his eyes vanishes while the mask is still on.

Plot hole: When The Penguin is controlling the Batmobile, Batman punches through the floor to take off the transmitter. We still see a video feed of The Penguin. Why? Batman pulled off the transmitter, so there is no reason for there to still be a video feed.

Revealing mistake: In one scene, the Penguin is making a "bat" shadow puppet on the ceiling. But there's no light behind his hands. If there's no light, there's no shadow.

Deliberate mistake: When the penguin goes into the cemetery, he bumps a tombstone and it moves. Almost certainly a tribute to legendarily poor director Ed Wood, who Tim Burton later directed a biopic of - this exact thing happened in one of his films.

Continuity mistake: When Selina puts her soft toys into the sink, and begins to push them down into the shredder hole, between shots the positions of the teddies in the sink differ.

Continuity mistake: When the Penguin is looking out of the barred sewer hole, from an inside shot we see the penguin holding two bars, and in between the bars he is holding are two bars. In the next shot, there are four bars in between.

Continuity mistake: Catwoman's lipstick smears down onto her chin when she puts The Penguin's bird in her mouth, yet in the shot just before she gives herself a "bath", the lipstick momentarily is gone.

Revealing mistake: After Catwoman's line "Life's a bitch. Now so am I.", she is thrown onto a diagonal roof by Batman. The roof wobbles uncontrollably as she lands on it.

Continuity mistake: When Selina returns home from work she takes milk out of the fridge and pours her cat some, leaving the carton on the worktop. She then runs to work, and when she returns after being changed to 'catwoman', the milk has vanished from the worktop. The dishes also move and plant pots appear on the window sill.

Continuity mistake: In Batman's first battle with the Red Triangle Circus gang he manages to escape from a fire eater by turning his batmobile around and burning the guy with the rear exhaust jet. He does this by flicking a switch (outlined in caution symbols) next to the steering wheel. When the Penguin takes Batman for a ride there is a television screen where the switch is supposed to be. When Batman blows the Batmobile apart to get though a narrow alley the switch is back in place. Not only that but the switch seems to control just about every major system on the car including the lights, shield cover, gun turrets (in the first movie), canopy etc.

Revealing mistake: When the Penguin drives the Batmobile remotely, the cars it smashes are damaged just before it hits them.

Continuity mistake: When the Penguin bites the guy on the nose, while he is talking to Max Shreck afterward the blood on his face is there, then it disappears, then it's there again.

Revealing mistake: When The Penguin shoots the clown who says "Killing sleeping children...", as the clown falls back to the floor, you can clearly see he falls on a wrinkled, soft mat which has unsuccessfully tried to be disguised.

Continuity mistake: The rubble and debris from the piece of wall which Batman tore from the wall, which lies beside the clown, differs between shots, and so does the clowns position.
