Joel Schumacher's tongue-in-cheek attitude hits an unbearable limit in Batman & Robin resulting in a frantic and mindless movie that's too jokey to care much for.

Of all modern Batmans, George Clooney bears the closest physical resemblance to the comic-book hero, but there isn't much to say about his performance because there isn't much performance to discuss.
The movie has its entertaining flashes, but there's too much bat-jive and bat-hokum.
In terms of new twists or narrative momentum. Poison Ivy, the sinuous villainess, is the only relief from the onslaught of spoofy humor, special effects and meaningless comic book mayhem.
[A] loud, long and pointless spectacle.
Batman & Robin won't kill the popular series, but it ought to slow it down a tad.
There's plenty to look at but nothing to feel.
Schumacher is like a bad stepdad who thinks we'll love him if he just feeds us candy all day. (Yes, Burton is the daddy in this metaphor - the manic-depressive, annoyingly emo daddy.)
Thurman aside, B&R is about what you've come to expect: loud, frenzied, brawling and fixated on sleek, shiny, high-tech vehicles and gadgetry.
Batman & Robin is less a movie than a razzle-dazzle video game.
Clooney manages to keep even these scenes afloat with consistent good humor and unforced charm.
Batman & Robin is as bad as anything on screen this year.
Schumacher piles on the action, but this is still the least satisfying entry in the series.
Another entry in the Batman saga. Well made and features a great cast but miles away in comparison to the first two. This feels very camp and more comic like than the dark brooding Batman films by Tim Burton.
It is nearly impossible not to feel ashamed for everyone involved in this mess (especially Joel Schumacher), an over-the-top disastrous movie whose actors look like flamboyant drag queens in a colorful carnival parade uttering some of the worst lines ever written.
Well, at least Chris O'Donnell's nice to look at -- but that's about it for the "positives". The rest is a boring mess.
A visual treat, but an overall trick. Batman & Robin fails to deliver with senseless innuendos as well as uninspiring performances from most of its cast. 1/5
