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.

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.

Hamster

Revealing mistake: During the climax, when a rocket hits the "Arctic World" sign and explodes, subsequently causing the polar-bear statue to fall, look closely. The scale of the fire and smoke (particularly the smoke, which looks similar to cigarette-smoke size and not the enormous plumes that such an explosion would create), in addition to the unnatural movements of the alleged large "statue" reveal that this effect was achieved with a rather obvious miniature set.

Audio problem: When the mayor's baby is first stolen, the audience gasps in a very fake way.

Batman then delivers a blow to the assailant, the view shifts further away, and we can see that neither Batman or the goon have the pipe, and it is nowhere on the ground nearby. After this, Batman turns to his right to defend against another goon and we see another enemy coming at him from behind, but after the view shifts to another shot and then back to Batman, this enemy is nowhere to be found.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Batmobile diagnostics detects a foreign object, it shows it being located approximately to the front-left of the windshield. It is also a 2D plan view.

Continuity mistake: When Selina arrives home from work, she walks around and listens to her answering machine. She then has to run off to work. When she gets back from work a second time, the dishes and cups in the draining tray beside her sink have totally changed.

Continuity mistake: As the Penguin is walking down the steps toward the podium, before Batman plays the messages the Penguin said, a man and a woman standing to the left of the podium swap places between shots.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end when Bruce takes the cat, the wounds on his left cheek change from faded to fresh.

Continuity mistake: In the opening, Penguin's parents look at the cage holding him. From the outside, his shaking is making the cage move slightly side to side. From inside, his shaking is not moving the cage at all.

Revealing mistake: There is a shot of Batman driving the Batmobile around town late at night looking for The Penguin. In this shot, look at the cars parked at the side of the road. They are miniatures as well as the rest of the shot.

Revealing mistake: When the penguins emerge to carry the Penguin (character) to the water after he dies, the penguins are blatantly little people in costumes. Their "skin" crinckles unnaturally, and the spot where their arms meet their bodies is very flat and fake-looking.

Revealing mistake: When Batman is driving the Bat-boat, just after he dodges the two rockets the penguins launch at him, as the Bat-boat slams back down into the water in the background, the scale of the water-splash reveal that this effect was achieved using a miniature set and miniature Bat-boat model. The scale of the water splash, and the enormous "drops" that splash up give the effect away.

Revealing mistake: When The Penguin (character) is first introduced, feeding the other (real) penguins, watch closely. While some of the penguins are real, it's blatantly obvious that some of them (particularly the ones to the left of the screen when Penguin says "Hi") are animatronic puppets, as they have very unnatural neck movements and don't waddle around like the rest. A few shots later, when Penguin says, "I believe the word you're looking for is...", you can even see an animatronic penguin on the left side of the screen that is unnaturally leaning slightly forward, yet never falls, revealing it's a puppet that was mounted to the ground.

Revealing mistake: When the penguins launch the rockets/missiles in the end, watch carefully. In the second wideshot of the rockets launching (right after the bats begin to attack Danny DeVito), you can see two of the rockets hanging in midair, not moving. At the beginning of the shot, you can even see one of them spurting some fire. The rockets (attached to visible guided wires by the effects crew) got stuck in mid air right before the shot began, a few seconds before this second volley of rockets fire off.

Continuity mistake: When Oswald Cobblepot is in his crib as a baby, in outside shots the rubber duck on the string is swaying back and forth. In shots through the crib bars, it is dead still.
