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 (there may have been a viler clay tablet somewhere in human history, but we mustn't waste time speculating on that).

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.
