When Batman and Robin pull grappling hooks from their utility belts, it zooms in and they are made of wobbly rubber. Whey they throw the hooks in the next frame, it makes a "clink" noise of steel hitting steel as they grab.

Character error 

When in the space rocket, Mr. Freeze says "At 30,000 feet, your heart will freeze and beat no more!" Obviously, this is false as the human heart can survive that altitude without freezing and the first thing to freeze would be his limbs, not his heart.

When we first see Dr. Pamela Isley , she says, "Drats! My experiments to mate the Dendrobium orchid and the South American rattlesnake have failed again!" The orchid shown is a Paphiopedilum (slipper) orchid, not a Dendrobium.

Continuity 

When Batman, Batgirl, and Robin leave Poison Ivy's Turkish Bath hideout and go after Mr. Freeze, their outfits all change. Batman gets a new bodysuit with a bat logo that takes up the entire chest, Robin gets a suit with a white bird insignia (as opposed to the red on his other one), and Batgirl acquires a Batman-style mask. With time being of the essence it's not likely they would have gone back to the Batcave to change outfits.

Factual errors 

When the Dynamic Trio is trying to unfreeze Gotham and can't wait the five hours until dawn, Robin suggests they use the satellites to reflect the sunlight "from the other side of the equator". This in and of itself wouldn't accomplish anything; the equator is a measure of latitude, while time of day (or night) is determined by longitude.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Barbara is looking at the CD-ROM that Alfred gave her, she looks at a photo of her mother. It has nothing written on it. She then flashes back to her memory of a different copy (Alfred's), which has "Love, Peg" written on it.

Plot holes 

Freeze smokes a cigar in one scene, which, given the state of his altered biology, he shouldn't be able to do.

When Poison Ivy and Bane come to steal the Bat Signal it is already activated - why? There's no emergency and if there was, there would be at least one officer operating or guarding it.

Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy do not seem very compatible as partners because he wants to freeze the world and she wants plants to roam the world. Plants do not survive in freezing temperatures.

Revealing mistakes 

When Mr. Freeze ices a police car, you later see the car door open, and the icicles on the door sway back and forth as if made of rubber.

During the standoff between Ivy and Batgirl, Robin emerges briefly from the pool of water, before being pulled back in. This footage was obviously not filmed at the time but added later on - its actually footage of Robin getting out of the pool once the fight is over which has been played then reversed to make it seem like a full movement.

Spoilers 

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Plot holes 

Near the end of the film Batman stands over Mr. Freeze as Freeze accuses him of killing his wife. Batman tells him that he didn't kill her and pulls out a small video monitor and shows Freeze the footage of Poison Ivy admitting that she was the one that pulled the plug of Freeze's wife. The problem is that Poison Ivy revealed this to Batgirl during their fight and Batman was no where near Poison Ivy at the time to record this admission. In fact, Batman was on the other side of the room, upside down and struggling with the vines that had wrapped themselves around him. He didn't even have a camera in his hands at the time, because he was too busy using the Batsaw to cut the vines away. And even if he had been recording Poison Ivy there's no way the footage would have as smooth as it was on the video monitor the way Batman was struggling to free himself.
