Batman and Robin are back working side-by-side to stop the villains of Gotham City, but is there tension appearing between them, especially when one villainess who calls herself Poison Ivy can make anyone fall in love with her...literally. Along with Poison Ivy, the icy Mr. Freeze is freezing anything which gets in his way from achieving his goal. Written by
Before and during the final confrontation at Gotham Observatory, Robin is wearing a batsuit with a silver "Robin" logo across it. But when they return to Wayne Mansion and Batman inserts the blue phials into Alfred's drip, Robin's wearing his old batsuit with the red 'Robin' logo on it. See more »
Brother, dear... I heard you were blue!
Arkham Asylum Guard:
Don't mind us, ma'am. You can speak freely!
[Poison Ivy blows a cloud of lovedust in his face]
Oh I don't mind you at all!
[she blows a second cloud into the second guard's face]
[walking and talking with the guards in tow]
Men! The most *absurd* of God's creatures!
We give you life... and we can take it away *just* as easily!
Arkham Asylum Guard, Arkham Asylum Guard:
[putting a hand on the second guard's face]
I really *am* to die for...

I know that there has to be some justice in this life, so everyone will pay for their sins and crimes someday. I shudder when I think what will happen to Joel Schumacher for killing the "Batman" franchise.
"Batman", the best of the series, was a dark, psychotic and complex movie with over the top acting and settings. The Batmobile was beautiful, as were the sets. The movie was forceful and interesting. "Batman Returns" shared some of the traits of its predecessor while adding more lunacy to the mix. It did suffer from the lack of top of the line talent (Jack Nicholson).
And then Mr. Schumacher ruined everything.
"Batman Forever" is a shame of a movie, but NOTHING compared to what this piece of garbage is. Since its from the same series, there is no excuse for the director to run wild and away from the spirit of the originals, in which a sad soul has to fight crime in order to mantain sanity. In Schumacher movies, Batman has to have the coolest cars, to kiss the most beautiful girls and to have a lot of fun while doing this. The first 2 movies acknowledged that killing or hurting people was a conscious choice which was painfully taken by Batman; in the last 2 it is as if violence was fun and part of Batman´s life.
There are so many wrong things about this film it is useless to count them. But there are two things that are an insult to every film goer: the Batmobile is reduced to a clownmobile, and Batman´s suit has NIPPLES in it. What a disgrace of a movie. This doesn't even qualify as "so bad it is good". This is merely "so bad it is bad".
