* NewerThanTheyThink: Despite being her iconic outfit, she's only worn a black catsuit in the comics since her redesign by Darwyn Cooke in the early 2000s. Prior to that in the post-Crisis era, she usually wore a purple catsuit, and her Golden Age and Bronze Age versions often wore dresses. However, her ''Series/Batman'' TV incarnations all did wear black leather catsuits, and that probably created the image.

** The fact that much of the plot of this film had actually been done better already- in the Batman TAS episode ''Feat of Clay''- probably didn't help any because of how poorly those copied elements were handle din this film.

*** But then again, why do we need any '''positive''' portrayal of sex workers in fiction.

* BaseBreaker: Catwoman is this in her own movie. Either you'll think she's a surprisingly great, entertaining original character or an insultingly cartoony replacement for an incredible comic book character.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: It was clear that the film was riding on Halle Berry's star power and sex appeal to win over audiences, made even more so with the unforgettably stripper-resque catsuit. As brilliantly summed up by Roger Ebert:
-->'''Roger Ebert''': There are three good things in it: Halle Berry's face, Halle Berry's body, and Halle Berry's costumes. Those are first-rate. Everything else in this movie is ''unbelievably'' bad.

* WTHCostumingDepartment: Halle Berry's rather stripper-esque leather ensemble and enlarged cat ears have been singled out as such by many fans and critics.

* UncannyValley: Her second appearance and first costumed one has her costume as a dress, cape, and a full mask/helmet with the appearance of a very realistic furry cat head. It's not so much sexy as deeply creepy.

* HilariousInHindsight: Patience is often criticized for being {{ComicBook/Catwoman}} in name only. When ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' came out in 2012, Creator/AnneHathaway played a version of Selina Kyle, who [[ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames never uses the "Catwoman" name]] despite wearing a feline-themed costume, and some think that Christopher Nolan chose never to refer to Selina as "Catwoman" in dialogue onscreen [[OldShame because of this film]].
