Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Revealing mistake: When April O'Neil first tries to take pictures of the foot clan activity at the docks, almost every time they show her phone, the screen is black. In fact, when she finally tries to get the shot of the Vigilante we see a clear as day reflection of herself on the screen.

Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie, the Turtles accidentally destroy Vernon's new car. If you look closely at one of the last shots of the movie where you can see the car now upside down, you can see the car doesn't have an engine, presumably to make it easier to flip.

Revealing mistake: When April first takes the photograph of the symbol, she actually has the camera in selfie mode, you can see her face on the phone.

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.

Question: Why would April abandon Splinter and the turtles to the sewers? If they were her pets why abandon them? Why not take them home?

Answer: She was trying to send them away to save them from the experiments. The first place to search if some experimental animals get lost are the houses of the people that are involved.
