Awesome / Batman & Robin

  • We all know Batman & Robin, but you'd be surprised that anyone could get a Moment of Awesome from this film. And surprisingly, it's Mr. Freeze who earns it, in his final scene where he confronts Ivy in Arkham, after learning that Ivy had nearly killed his wife— according to the novel, he traded the cure for his wife's disease just so he could share the cell. His dialogue is just plain and simply chilling and badass, and no review of the movie can deny it.
    Poison Ivy: (picking the petals off a flower) Loves me...loves me not. Loves me...loves me not. Loves me...
    Mr. Freeze: ...not. (Freeze's suit illuminates from a dark corner of the cell) Surprise. I am your new cellmate, and I've come to make your life a living hell. Prepare for a bitter harvest— winter has come at last.
    • Arguably, Freeze gets more than a few badass lines. Maybe it's part Narm Charm, but among the silly puns, he has some great villain quotes, made better by the metallic voice effect from his suit.
  • Mr. Freeze's capture right after he crashed the auction.
  • Awesome Music: Being a large budget movie, it has quite a good soundtrack. With an award winning score by Elliot Goldenthall and songs by The Smashing Pumpkins, R. Kelly, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Jewel, and so on, there's a little something for everyone. (To be fair, however, Goldenthall recycled the Batman Forever score.)
  • Robin out gambiting Poison Ivy. Say what you will about the rest of the movie, but that's an awesome moment. Ivy succeeds in seducing Robin while they're alone and kisses him, but Robin reveals he was wearing a rubber lip, allowing him to survive Ivy's kiss and ruining her Just Between You and Me. It also means Robin was just playing around pretending to be the love-struck fool Ivy thought he was and managed to steal a kiss from his crush without risk and see if she loved him like she claimed or was trying to kill him like Batman thought; and being able to kiss Poison Ivy without being poisoned is something many fans would wish for. And while she has a chance to kiss him again after he takes the rubber lips off, she tries drowning him by shoving him off her throne instead. Clearly too pissed and humiliated to notice.
    Robin: I hate to disappoint you but, rubber lips are immune to your charm. (Ivy's smug look turns to shock and anger as she realizes she's the one who's been tricked)
  • For all the film's flaws, the movie does come closest out of the four films to portraying a father-son dynamic between Bruce and Alfred, especially the scenes where Alfred talks to Bruce about his stubborn nature in the Batman persona and the scene on Alfred's near-deathbed.
  • The otherwise execrable Batman & Robin has a zinger from Batgirl to Poison Ivy:
    Batgirl: Using feminine wiles to get what you want? Trading on your looks? Read a book, sister — that passive-aggressive number went out long ago. Chicks like you give women a bad name.
  • Despite being unfairly Mis-blamed for this movie's many failings, Joel Schumacher has fully accepted responsibility and has apologized for it on many occasions. Truly a stand-up guy to do that considering so many other directors have problems taking criticism.
