Stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, George Clooney, Chris O'Donnell, Uma Thurman
Rating: PG-13 (Parental Guidance Suggested)
Runtime: 126 minutes
Following Val Kilmer's portrayal of the caped crusader in Batman Forever, the fourth Batman feature stars George Clooney under the pointy-eared cowl, with Chris O'Donnell returning as Robin the Boy Wonder. This time the dynamic duo is up against the nefarious Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger), who is bent on turning the world into an iceberg, and the slyly seductive but highly toxic Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman), who wants to eliminate all animal life and turn the Earth into a gigantic greenhouse. Alicia Silverstone lends a hand as Batgirl, and Elle McPherson plays the thankless role of Batman/Bruce Wayne's fiancée. A sensory assault of dazzling colors, senseless action, and lavish sets run amok, this Batman & Robin offers an overdose of eye candy, but it is strictly for devoted Bat-o-philes. --Jeff Shannon
I could have made that jump!
And you could have splattered your brains all over the side of the building.
You know, in the circus, the Flying Graysons were a team. We had to trust each person to do their jobs. That's what being partners is all about. Sometimes, counting on someone else is the only way you win.
You're head wasn't even on the job. All you could think about was Poison Ivy.
You just can't stand it! Maybe she wanted me instead of you. I mean, this is you're idea of friendship, isn't it, Bruce? It's your house, it's your rules, it's your way to the highway! It's Batman and Robin, not Robin and Batman, and I'm sick of it!
Yes, it's my rules. *My* rules to keep us alive, and if you want to stay in this house, and on this team, you will abide by them!
This is no partnership. You're never gonna trust me!
Well, he's over-eager. He's impulsive. I can't trust him not to get hurt.
Perhaps the truth is you really don't trust anyone.
Oh, don't tell me you're on his side, again.
Despite all your talents, you are still a novice in the ways of family. Master Dick follows the same star as you but gets there by his own course. You must learn to trust him, for that is the nature of family.
I trust *you*, Alfred.
But I shan't be here forever.
Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy:
Hello, Jason. I think I've had a change of heart, literally. The animal-plant toxins you dumped on me had a rather unique effect. They replaced my blood with aloe, my skin with chlorophyll, and filled my lips with venom. (Kisses him on the lips) Oh and Jason, one other thing. I probably should've mentioned this earlier. I'm poison.
I will blanket the city in endless winter. First Gotham, and then the world.
Just what I had in mind. Everything dead on earth, except us. A chance for Mother Nature to start again. Behold, the dawn of a new age. My mutant plants have the strength of the deadliest animals. Once you have frozen mankind, these babies will overrun the globe, and we shall rule them, for we will be the only two people left in the world.
Adam and Evil!
