Batman returns but he’s acting a little batty. This sequel is quite odd. Tim Burton had free reign to unleash his weirdness for this return to the loony Gotham City. This time even more animal-like characters join the fray. Catwoman and the Penguin add a twinge of weirdness. I guess Catwoman became a cat after she takes a fall and gets bit and licked by cats. The Penguin is also a conundrum because he has almost more “Joker-like” minions than the Joker had. Michael Keaton is still a bad Bruce Wayne but a decent Batman. I really liked Pfeiffer’s performance and Tim Burton’s Gothic style works well, but he got a little too goofy with this one.
