About the Movie
Batman (Adam West) and Robin (Burt Ward) must launch a rescue mission when they get a tip that Commodore Schmidlapp (Reginald Denny) is in danger aboard his yacht. But the tip is a set-up by four of the most powerful villains ever, who seek to defeat the dynamic duo once and for all! Armed with a dehydrator that can turn humans into dust, the fearsome foursome intends to take over the world! Can the Caped Crusaders use their high-flying heroism and groovy gadgetry to declaw Catwoman (Lee Meriwether), ice the Penguin (Burgess Meredith), upstage the Joker (Cesar Romero), and stump the Riddler (Frank Gorshin) in time?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Batman is packed with action, clever sight gags, interesting complications and goes all out on bat with batmania: batplane, batboat, batcycle, etc. etc.
Fresh: Fluffy, good-natured, endlessly quotable fun, just like you remember it.
Fresh: I'd choose Adam West's Batmobile over Michael Keaton's any day.
good but what about the newer version with the joker
I really like this movie but i want I tunes to make availible the version of batman that has the most recent joker in it. not heath ledger but the batman that was released i think in the 80s.
Great laughs with a decent story
This is a great movie with tons of laughs but it lacjs in the story and protrayal department. Granted, this movie was made in the sixty's but one thing that you cannot do is base a movie review off of what itunes has available. You cannot give a movie a half star less becasue itunes does not have the 1989 movie with Jack Nicholson and Michael Keaton available.
WHAT ABOUT JACK?
I totally agree that "Batman The Movie" is the ultimate hit in Batman history (it DID open doors for the movies that followed). However, I would LOVE to see "Batman" from 1989 with Jack Nicholson HERE on iTunes.
