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.
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: Alan Ritchson, who portrays Rafael in this film and the sequel "Out of the Shadows," has stated that the actors portraying the four turtles were mistreated on-set and by the studio. As they were technically portraying animated characters through motion capture, their contracts were reportedly "full of loopholes" that didn't afford them equal treatment with the rest of the live-action cast, despite them being on-set full-time doing grueling work in motion-capture suits. One particular instant included the four turtle actors being kicked off set at the end of a 14-hour day without transportation home, while the rest of the cast and crew were given rides. They also weren't paid overtime like the rest of the crew, were barred from giving interviews despite portraying the titular characters, weren't invited to the premier, and were subsequently denied back-end profit shares from the sequel that they had been promised.
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.
Michelangelo: What's up, brah? Oh, you think you can handle this, Huh? I'm a snapping turtle fool!
Donatello: Allow me to be the badass for once.
April: You're ninja...mutant...turtle...teenagers?
Donatello: When you put it like that it sounds ridiculous.
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.
