Honestly, we came out of this one with no idea what happened. Stuff did happen, certainly, but it's mostly a lot of neon lights, male dancers on rollerblades and watching the Batman franchise get buried so deep it wouldn't dig itself out until eight years later. Oh, and the governor of California was bald and spray-painted blue.
Batman & Robin is not the worst movie ever. No, indeed. It's the worst thing ever. Yes, it's the single worst thing that we as human beings have ever produced in recorded history.

I would say that by this point, the Batman franchise had been reduced to the level of the campy '60s Adam West TV series, but that would be an insult to Adam West.
