Holy franchise, Batman! Third-time actioner considerably lightens up Tim Burton's dark vision for a more family-oriented Caped Crusader (now played by Kilmer, who fills out lip requirement nicely). The Boy Wonder also makes a first-time appearance in the bulked-up form of O'Donnell, a street-smart Robin with revenge on his mind. Naturally, the villains still steal the show in the personas of maniacal Carrey (the Riddler) and the sartorially splendid Jones as Harvey "Two-Face" Dent. Rounding out this charismatic cast is Kidman's slinky psychologist Chase Meridian, who's eager to find the man inside the bat (and who can blame her). Lots of splashy toys for the boys and awe-inspiring sets to show you where the money went. A Gotham City gas that did $53 million at it's opening weekend boxoffice--breaking the "Jurassic Park" record, testimony to the power of aggressive marketing.

This was one of my favorite Batman movies and a favorite from when I was little. I was around 6 years old, I had a crush on Chris O'Donnell, and I would watch it several times in one day. It's action packed with good looking men. What else do you need? Just joking. Jim Carrey played a really great part of the Riddler, as well as Tommy Lee Jones as "Two-Face." Every one wants to know who the "real" Batman is. Especially the women. His suit shows off his sexy muscles.
