* AudienceAlienatingPremise: A film about Batman's longtime nemesis Catwoman [[AdaptedOut with no Batman in it]] was bound to be this. Not helping was the film's higher priority on cat-related puns, Halle Berry's sex appeal, and a scheme involving a very dangerous facial cream.

Well, okay, it IS a superhero movie based off a comic book so the puns and facial cream are in the wheel house. But the fact it's not the Catwoman people were wanting didn't exactly do it any favors.

* DorkAge:
** Her New 52 book prior to Genevieve Valentine's run is wildly considered to be one as well.

* InternetBacklash: "I am Suicide" had the premise that, among other things, Selina Kyle had killed over 200 people and was scheduled to be executed, with Batman being the one who brought her in for the murders. Her fans, and fans of the Bat/Cat ship, were ''not'' amused, with insults and threats being hurled at writer Tom King, and fans were just puzzled on what would lead Selina to kill so many people, even after it was revealed that the people were terrorists who blew up her old orphanage. Funnily enough, while he didn't condone the behaviour, he ''did'' encourage the FanonDiscontinuity and FridgeLogic taking place, as this was the mindset that Batman ''himself'' had, and in fact, [[spoiler: it's revealed she didn't kill anyone; she was covering for Holly Robinson]].

* SoBadItsGood: Some people would argue that the movie is this. Others would say it's either great or terrible.

* 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.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The basketball scene has "Scandalous" by Mis-Teeq played over it. It's widely considered to be the group's best song.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverLiveItDown: Widely regarded as one of the worst superhero films ever, and the one that very nearly derailed Halle Berry's film career. It's lack of relation to Batman's long-time opponent and over-reliance on Berry's sex appeal was not lost on viewers.

* EvilIsSexy: Naturally Catwoman falls under this trope, but Sharon Stone's villainous character comes to a close second.

* UnnecessaryMakeover: For Creator/HalleBerry.

to:

* UnnecessaryMakeover: For Creator/HalleBerry. The movie decides that Halle Berry of all people needs a makeover. It involves putting on even more make-up, cutting her hair drastically short and donning a tight black leather outfit. The make-up puts her in the UncannyValley, the haircut screams "early 2000s" and the outfit is FetishRetardant. Patience looks far cuter before the ridiculously sexualised makeover.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Patience's mentor is a crazy cat lady who claims that her theories about Catwomen warriors were shot down because of... male academia. [[SarcasmMode It's probably not the fact that it'd be hard to believe that dead women can be resurrected by cats into becoming superheroes.]] She never assumed that her theories were shot down because of how she made it sound and instead blames sexism for her troubles.

** When Patience stumbles upon the exposition of the dangers of the make-up, the executive talking about it is supposed to come off as sympathetic. He states that he was fine with all of the cream's side effects (dizziness, fainting, and mental effects) but drew the line at the permanent facial damage that the cream did with prolonged use. It's an attempt at EvenEvilHasStandards but many criticized him for willing to turn the blind eye to all of the other, still very severe, side effects.
