4 Missing the point.jaflofty | 14/10/2010 | See all jaflofty's reviews (16)After reading reviews claiming Heath Ledger is better and Christian Bale is much better in the Dark Knight, One has to wonder how that is relevant. Answer, It's not. Batman & Robin is a bad film is looked at from a serious perspective. But with Mr.Freeze, Poison Ivy, Bat-Nipples, a Bat-Credit Card, and the multiple butt shots it is quite clear that Batman & Robin is a comedy film spoofing the serious nature of the Batman Franchise.After the dark nature of the first two Batman Movies starring Michael Keaton, WB wanted to open the franchise up to a much larger audience, Specifically Children. As with Batman Forever, Batman & Robin aims to please children more than adults, knowing that most adults will be less likely to purchase the comics and other merchandise, this film was aimed at children, to start selling more merchandise, And it worked. Though panned by the critics it was a smash hit at the box office.Filled with terrible cheesy lines, hilarious acting, and a frozen urinating bulldog, Batman & Robin is a wonderful comedy that Children of all ages will enjoy watching.Don't watch this film expecting it to be the Dark Knight, You can watch the Dark Knight for that. If you liked 60's Adam West Batman and just want to relax with a classic comedy, Batman and Robin is the film for you.
