About the Movie
In the second of the blockbuster Batman films, the physically deformed criminal genius The Penguin threatens Gotham City--and, helpless, the entire city can only pray that Batman Returns. Only Batman (Michael Keaton) can defend the city from total chaos as The Penguin (Danny DeVito) lays twisted waste to a great metropolis. Meanwhile, the Dark Knight may have met his equal in the lethally lithe Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer)--only he doesn't know if she is feline friend ... or foe.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Because the film's predominant motif is that of wounded individuals re-inventing themselves as wily villains, its most memorable episodes are early ones explaining each main character's transformation.
Fresh: Exhaustingly inventive.
Fresh: Burton uses the summer's most explosively entertaining movie to lead us back into the liberating darkness of dreams.
Rotten: [Burton's] dark, melancholy vision is undeniably something to see, but it is a claustrophobic conception, not an expansive one, oppressive rather than exhilarating, and it strangles almost all the enjoyment out of this movie without half trying.
...a Batman film. More like tim burton playing around w batman in his own way.
Also there is NO way 'Returns' is better than the original 'Batman' w Nicholson as Joker as rotten tomatoes suggests.
Great Catwoman!! But not a Great Batman film.
Love this movie
Love it, but batman's barley in it, too much penguin scenes. This movies also has a lot of sex jokes.it's pretty gothic too. One of the wierdest batman movies. But still is great.
I would not give this movie the title "Batman Returns" but I would give it the title Penguin and Catwoman. Batman is in the movie for probably ten minutes. I would not call this a batman movie but rather a tim burton movie that happens to include batman.
