Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Corrected entry: Once the countdown to release the poison has been stopped, The Shredder cuts the supports of the tower holding the poison container so that it will fall and release the poison by smashing open. The turtles attempt to support the tower, but in order to save April they fail and the tower falls anyway. Then the movie forgets that the poison exists. The act of the tower falling gets rolled into another action sequence and after it completely smashes to the ground, no poison. The turtles don't even mention it.

Correction: The canister containing the poison doesn't smash - in the overhead shot of the tower smashed on the ground with the turtles in it, the canister is still visibly intact.

Plot hole: On the night after April meets the turtles for the first time, she has her boss come to her apartment and tries desperately to try and convince her that the turtles are real, unfortunately her boss wasn't convinced and she ends up getting fired. However, April had already taken two pictures of the turtles on her phone the night previously (before meeting the turtles and after they had left the roof and began jumping over other roof tops). She could have easily just shown the pictures to her boss and she would have been convinced the turtles were real. Even if Donatello deleted the picture she had taken before meeting the turtles, April had still taken a picture of the turtles after they left the roof and jumped from other roof tops, so she still could have easily been able to prove they exist.

Trivia: When Splinter reveals that he knows April and she speaks his name, the camera pans over Mikey as he asks if she is a Jedi and he can be seen holding a can of Orange Crush. As promotion for the movie, Mikey was featured on the boxes of Orange Crush soda once the movie came out. Similarly with Donnie on Grape Crush and Raph on Strawberry Crush.

More trivia for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Question: How does Splinter know who shredder is? It's established that his first memories are from the lab so that's how he knows Eric Sacks is a bad guy and April saved them, but how does Splinter know Sacks is working for the foot and is connected to shredder? He even knows shredder trained Sacks as a boy, but this was in Japan, 20 to 30 years before Splinter was around.

Answer: Sacks told April that he was raised in Japan by a local sensei, and that he shared the lessons he learnt with her father. Splinter would have overheard Sacks mention his master at the lab, as well as when O'Neil discovered what he was up to with Project Renaissance and his connection to Shredder and the Foot Clan.
