When meeting Batman at the Bat-signal, Chase Meridian says "Last night at the bank, I noticed something about Two-Face: his coin." Two-Face never uses his coin within view of her at the bank, and she could not have seen it from the ground if he had. This scene was originally written to take place after the circus scene, where she really did see him use his coin.The bat-signal, seen from Wayne Enterprises, was actually supposed to led what led Bruce to the bank in the first place.

When Bruce is speaking into his video watch (when Alfred tells him the Batmobile is missing), each time the watch is seen is closeup, Bruce's finger moves up the side. It must have been filmed only once, then reused, with the video of Alfred added later.

Before Bruce arrives at Chase's office to show her the riddles he had been receiving, we see him get out of his car, walk up the stairs, and break Chase's door down. He does not have the riddles in his hand until he is ready to ask her about them, and they are way too big and bulky to have fit into his pocket.

When The Riddler breaks into Two-Face's hideout, he only has his cane with him, but a few minutes later, when he demonstrates how "the box" works, the two green receivers that it uses are already there.

Factual errors 

In the climax, the Riddler refers to Robin by his battle name and is well aware that he's Batman's faithful sidekick. This is impossible, as that is supposed to be Dick's first outing as Robin.

There is no way that Batman's grappling hook could not only pierce through solid concrete but also support the weight of a two ton safe.

Miscellaneous 

There is no logical way that The Riddler could keep vastly changing his hair (cut/ color/ style) and flamboyant outfits the way he does, in such a hurried manner. The final showdown with Batman is certainly the biggest offender.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Bruce uses the torpedo to access the batcave, he travels at nearly 200 mph for almost a minute, indicating that the batcave is some distance below Wayne Manor. But when Dick finds the batcave, it appears that it is only a few stories below. Bruce is traveling from his office in downtown Gotham, which is quite some distance form Wayne Manor, which explains the speeds at which he travels to get there.

When The Riddler tells Two-Face the bargain, Two-Face gives him the "heads, we accept", and "tails, we decline" speech. He then tosses his coin into the air. We then get a close-up shot of the coin. But when it is coming back down, it is clear that it lands on tails, not heads. But, traditionally a coin flip involves catching, covering and flipping the coin again, so we see heads down, which would flip to heads up and Two-Face accepting.

Joel Schumacher's Batman movies are not set in quite the same universe as Tim Burton's, so differences between them (in the back stories of Bruce Wayne and Harvey Dent, for example) are not goofs.

Young Bruce Wayne drops his father's diary when he falls into the cave, but lands with it in hand. This may be a deliberate, as the scene is a subjective view of a confusing, traumatic moment, when memory can become unreliable.

Plot holes 

The Batcomputer reacts to an intruder in the Batcave by turning on the power on for everything, and unlocking the various Bat-vehicles. This response actually makes it easier for an intruder to steal the Batmobile, than if it did nothing.

Two-Face's plan to hold the circus hostage unless Batman gives himself up doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If Batman never revealed himself and if Robin hadn't been able to throw the bomb into the river everyone in the circus would have died including Two-Face's thugs who had not yet evacuated the building. Even if the thugs had begun evacuating (the way the scene is shot it is hard to tell) there is no way they ever would have been able to get clear of the blast radius in time and Two - Face himself even though had escaped through a trap door still would have been killed as the entire surface would have collapsed in on him. It's highly unlikely this was intended to be a suicide mission meaning that Two-Face and his entire gang hadn't thought things through all the way.

For some reason Chase never questions why Bruce just disappeared during Nygma's party after Two-Face shows up.

Revealing mistakes 

When The Riddler and Two-Face meet for the first time you can spot Jim Carrey in his green costume in the background, waiting for his appearance. Just as Sugar says: "I made your favorite tonight" look to the right side of the screen.

When The Riddler and two-Face are committing they're first robbery (at the jewelry store) the Riddler breaks an glass display case and grabs a very big diamond and says: "here's a good one". However when he holds it up to look at it, the frame changes and it has suddenly been reduced to a tiny diamond barely visible. Then Two-Face shows him a big diamond (probably the one we saw earlier) and says: No, No, there is a good one". Jim Carrey apparently picked up the wrong diamond, and in the next frame given it to Tommy Lee Jones. It is also obvious that they tried to hide the frame switch in the editing of the film.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

The total fall sequence, from the time the Riddler pushes the button, to the time Chase and Robin are caught by Batman, is forty seconds. In order for this to happen, Chase and Robin would have to have fallen from a height of over six thousand feet, and not the two hundred feet or so we could see from the Riddler's hideout to the rocks below.

Chase Meridian loses her shoes when she gets dropped out of the Riddler's holding tube; her hosed feet are plainly visible in several shots. When Batman and Robin finally pull Chase to safety, she still has no shoes on. However, a few shots after that, she can be seen wearing a pair of black sneakers.

During the zoom-in on Robin's face as Two-Face falls at the film's climax, it is possible to see two small pieces of damage to Robin's mask, most prominently a vertical nick in the rubber below his right eye. After Two-Face's hand has disappeared below the water, the scene cuts back to Robin and the damage has gone.
