Tommy Lee Jones
Corny, campy, and utterly lacking the grim atmosphere of its Tim-Burtony predecessors. Jim Carrey is at a hyperkinetic peak, but what's with the neon?
Where did it all go wrong?
From the casting, this had the possibility to be another strong entry in this franchise, but instead it turned into a steaming great pile of manure.
Val Kilmer manages to brood as the Bat, but has a horrible tendecy to camp it up when he thinks the Batman fans wont notice and totally fails to convince as Bruce Wayne, Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones both seem to be auditioning for the role of pantomime Dames (possibly in Blackpool!), and exactly what was the point of bringin in someone with the profile of Nicole Kidman for this - would have been cheaper and easier to introduce a lesser actress and use the money saved to get a decent script, possibly along with a decent director.
Drew Barrymore was another big name who came in for a really small, insignificant part - why??
Altogether, one to avoid.
