This movie is definitely a mixed bag. According to Rotten Tomatoes Critics Consensus, Batman Forever is “loud, excessively busy, and often boring, Batman Forever nonetheless has the charisma of Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones to offer mild relief.”
It was my movie birthday pick the year it came out. I successfully found a Riddler action figure that was so difficult to find. The soundtrack to the movie is definitely worth listening to when you get the chance.
