Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Plot hole: When April O'Neil calls Vernon Fenwick (drives the channel 6 van), he answers his phone and immediately says "O'Neil". When the scene cuts back to O'Neil, we see she called from a payphone. Fenwick would have no way to know it was her calling.

Suggested correction: That isn't a plot hole. Vernon assumed April was the person calling him and was correct. People do this all the time in real life.

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.

Casual Person

Plot hole: The turtles are taken away to have their blood drained for the mutagen but Splinter is left behind. How come Splinter wasn't taken? He also has the mutagen in his blood.

Suggested correction: Because April told Sacks that she saved the turtles she never said anything about Splinter being saved as well. So Sacks assumed that only the turtles survived and Splinter didn't.

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.

Question: Where did Splinter get the turtles their weapons since they live in a sewer?

Rob245

Answer: While never really adressed, the most popular fan theories suggest that either: 1. Splinter manufactured the weapons with materials he found in the sewers or 2. Splinter scavenged for the weapons at a local dump or 3. They were ordered online (only applies to the 2014 version). Fans admit these explanations are kind of a stretch but certain scenes across movies and/or series lend credibility to one explanation or the other. 1. They seem to know how to improve or even craft their weapons meaning that someone taught them (Splinter). 2. They seem to be troubled when a weapon goes missing or breaks meaning they have limited access to spares. 3. Money doesn't seem to be an issue considering all the pizza that is consumed (in some cases the Turtles have been seen holding down jobs like tech support or birthday party mascot). The original purchase could've been made with money scavanged in the sewers and delivered to a P.O. box Source: https://tinyurl.com/y6kbxhlq.
