Added DiffLines:

* HypeBacklash: This was inevitable after all of the promotion the film adapation received, as well as its status as being the very first R-rated DC animated film ever. The inclusion of certain story elements that weren't in the original comic such as [[spoiler:Batman having sex with Barbara]] didn't help either.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The film version introduces a prologue section not included in the comics that's supposed to flesh out Barbara's backstory more. However, many fans believe they achieved the exact opposite and only served to objectify Barbara even more ''and'' destroy Batman's character.

* UnfortunateImplications:
** Website/TheAgonyBooth [[http://www.agonybooth.com/agonizer/How_The_Killing_Joke_Ruined_Batgirl.aspx was very critical]] of its StuffedIntoTheFridge treatment of Batgirl, who serves only as a helpless victim to the story.
** In the republished edition, Bolland adds an apology in the art sketch notes to all people with dwarfism for the three evil dwarf henchmen of the Joker.
