* FoodPorn: We don't get to see much of it onscreen, but Two-Face's extravagant six-course dinner, as described by Sugar and Spice, sounds ''incredibly'" tasty, if not a little bizarre (and given the ladies' sexual tone when describing it, this Trope is taken ''quite'' literally).

'''Two-Face''': Mmm, perfect! Ladies, you spoil us. We're two minds about what we eat first.

-->'''Sugar''': I made your favorite tonight: sparkling champagne, yummy poached salmon with little itty bitty quail eggs, and a creamy, dreamy lemon soufflé.
-->'''Spice''': No, ''I'' made your favorite: a charred heart of black boar, a side of raw donkey meat, and a sterno and grain alcohol, straight up baby! Hahahahahahaha!

Batman ([[TheOtherDarrin now]] ValKilmer) is battling Harvey Dent / Two-Face ([[TheOtherDarrin now]] Creator/TommyLeeJones), a struggle that gets tougher when Edward Nygma/The Riddler (Creator/JimCarrey) enters the picture, as both have personal vendettas against the Bat. Batman finds an ally in orphaned acrobat Dick Grayson (Chris O'Donnell), who discovers Bruce Wayne's secret and becomes Robin with the initial intent of taking revenge against Two-Face, who killed his family. As a sub-plot, Bruce deals with a budding romance with psychiatrist Dr. Chase Meridian (Creator/NicoleKidman), something that naturally causes some problems because of his double-life.

* GroinAttack: For real. Jim Carrey got a little carried away with his cane-twirling and clobbered co-star Jones right between the legs.

* MissingTrailerScene: In multiple trailers, there is a scene where Two-Face says "If the Bat wants to play, we'll play!" This line/scene never made into the theatrical release. The line was even used in the Genesis/SNES video game adaptation of the film.



** DrewBarrymore as Sugar and Debi Mazar as Spice, or as the script originally referred to them, Leather and Lace. Of all of Barrymore's screentime, she has exactly one scene that is not spent in lingerie, and except for a sheer coat, Mazar spends the entire movie in a dominatrix getup that would make [[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Dr. Frank N. Furter]] jealous.

* AdaptationOriginConnection: This happens by way of CompositeCharacter, as the Dick Grayson version of {{Comicbook/Robin}} sees his circus acrobat parents killed by Two-Face instead of Tony Zucco. This makes him a bit like Jason Todd in the ComicBook/PostCrisis comics, whose gangster father was murdered by Two-Face.

* LargeHam: Both Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carrey, both of whom seemed to be trying to be the JackNicholson's TheJoker of the film, which leads to some HamToHamCombat that can't be measured.

Ultimately, the film proved somewhat divisive - die-hard fans of the darker Burton films rejected it outright, but Warner's gambit to cater to a larger audience paid off, and the box office results were $70 million higher than those of ''Returns''. In general, the film was and still is regarded as flawed, but entertaining. Unfortunately, [[FranchiseOriginalSin the flawed aspects]] (cartoony villain personalities, over-dramatic action set pieces) were taken to the extreme and permeated ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', the final film in the original Batman film series.
