Continuity mistake: After Master Tatsu kicks his opponent in the face, a couple of bystanders in the background instantly move further apart from each other between shots. In addition, one of them is a Foot member who loses his nunchaku as the shot changes. (00:32:30)

Revealing mistake: A lot of times in the movie, when the turtles' mouths are wide open, you can see the cast. An example of this is the scene when Raphael wakes up in the bath tub and Leo hugs him. When Donatello tilts his head back and laughs you can see eyes, a nose, and a mouth within the mouth of the costume.

Revealing mistake: When the Turtles make their triumphant entrance jumping in frame after the logo, at the bottom of the screen you can tell they are wearing white socks/shin guards, except Raphael who is the one the camera is focused on. (00:05:30)

Revealing mistake: When three of the turtles are playing trivial pursuit and the fourth runs in to announce Splinter is alive, you can see a wire coming out of Raphael's shell. I guess it's for the animatronic head but it's clearly visible. (00:59:30)
