Batman Forever


The third Batman film saw Tim Burton handing over directing duties to Joel Schumacher who brought some light into this franchise. It became more kiddie-oriented, the dialogue had more laughs and the colors became so bright they made one think of the 1960s TV series. There was too much of everything; Nicole Kidmanā€™s love interest never registered, Tommy Lee Jonesā€™s villain was too over-the-top (Jack Nicholson as the Joker must have been an inspiration) and we could have done without the teen angst of young Robin. Jim Carrey, though, is a perfect Riddler.

1995-U.S. 121 min. Color. Directed byĀ Joel Schumacher. Song: ā€œHold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Meā€ (performed by U2). Cast: Val Kilmer (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Tommy Lee Jones (Harvey Dent/Harvey Two-Face), Jim Carrey (Edward Nygma/The Riddler), Nicole Kidman, Chris Oā€™Donnell, Michael Gough… Pat Hingle, Drew Barrymore.

Quote:Ā ā€œI hope they can find the little black box.ā€ (Carrey, after shooting down the Batplane)
