Why Michael Keaton refused to star in Batman Forever
The movie, not the McDonald's franchise—though is it possible or even desirable to tell the two apart? This mannered and mechanical spin-off, suitable for boys of five and under, gives us two male couples instead of a single hero and villain—Batman and Robin Val Kilmer and Chris O'Donnell on the one hand, the Riddler and Two-Face Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones on the other—with Nicole Kidman as a shrink periodically turning up to validate the rampant repressed homoeroticism.
At least Tim Burton's Batman had the advantage of an original Jack Nicholson performance; this time we get only familiar Carrey shtick and Jones's reprise of Ty Cobb to take care of the villainy. Director Joel Schumacher submits to the Wagnerian bombast with an overly busy surface, and the script by Lee and Janet Scott Batchler and Akiva Goldsman basically runs through the formula as if it's a checklist; with Michael Gough and Pat Hingle.
