The Caped Crusader & the Boy Wonder hit the Pacific
Okay, the first half hour of this Filipino Batman and Robin parody is a bit testing. But don't give up - the madcap musical numbers (even coinciding with bank robberies, of all things), manic fights and general craziness pop up in the second half. The songs are crackers and the plot? Basically various folks become Batman characters - The Penguin, etc - to rob banks (of various types), sing a little and play some air guitar. In return, the goofball caped crusader and his boy wonder get down to their crime-fighting duties. The finale is the entire cast and the Marvel Comics back-catalogue singing a rousing tune ("Let's be afraid of God. Let's believe in love!"). Not once does this film take itself seriously - for starters, the batcave carport has Batman TV series posters on the wall and comes well-stocked with bat milk, bat coffee and bat tea. A very silly movie.
