  • Cast
Trouble returns to Gotham in director Tim Burton's sequel as Batman (Michael Keaton) battles three new villains plotting to take over the city, including corrupt businessman Max Shreck (Christopher Walken), the hideous Penguin (Danny DeVito) and the mysterious Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer). This comic book brought to life drew two Oscar nods for its visuals, but its dark themes and violence led Warner Bros. in a lighter direction for Batman Forever.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sequel to the 1989 original film is darker and more kill-happy than the previous installment. Crooks wearing giant skull-head masks run amok at a Christmas-tree lighting ceremony. Selena suffers a breakdown, during which she destroys her apartment. The Penguin threatens Schreck by producing his ex-partner's severed hand. Schreck is electrocuted, leaving a charred, pop-eyed corpse. And the movie deals with mature themes, such as death, abandonment of a child, and corruption in big business.

Sexual Content

Batman and Catwoman have two knockdown fights, one of which ends with Catwoman straddling the Caped Crusader; the scene is played as if the two were engaging in foreplay. Later, Selena makes a joke about the "semi-hard" nature of their apologies to each other.

Violence

Lots of gunfire and carnage. Selena is pushed out a window to her death (but is reborn shortly after hitting the pavement). The Penguin shoots a henchmen at close range. Batman sets an opponent on fire. The Penguin nearly bites off a publicist's nose.

Language

Mild obscenity and various double entendres. Most blatantly, the Penguin uses the word "pussy" to refer to Catwoman.

Social Behavior

Batman is brave and tries to do the right thing.

Consumerism

Tie-in to vast quantities of related merchandise.
