    Batman and Robin really was quite bad. Even Clooney comments on how bad it was all the time. Good to see someone owning up to their own crap fests.

    I think he should be apologising for falling from grace rapidly after the Lost Boys. Batman and Robin was bad, but only as bad as Batman Forever. I had and continue to have fun watching both, but considering the quality of both casts, it's sad that they were squandered in such fashion. He should really apologise to them for the genuine low points in their careers he instigated.

    I honestly have never seen Lost Boys but a friend of mine has it. Might need to check it out and see if it is good. Can't be worse that Batman and Robin.

    I don't think he goes far enough with that apology.



    I think I'd be satisfied with public hari-kari.

    I think people should just let this good. Crap movies are made all the time (and comic movies more often than not)...this movie is a decade old for crying out loud its time to move on.

    Besides he more than made up for it with 8MM, which was fucking awesome.

    I hate Joel's Batman movies as much as everyone else here. But Phone Booth was great! Rent it!

    Yeah, Phone Booth was pretty cool.

    I think Cellular came out at the same time, and I dug that also.

    Wait...so all the Shumacher hate I've been reading and hearing about all theses years....that all came from one movie? Sweet Primus, the way people have been talking and/or typing I thought everything he touched turned to shit.

    People need to calm the hell down.

    No. No, I don't need to calm down.

    I'm not inclined towards fanboy outrage at all, but goddam, that movie was awful.

    I'm pleased to have Schumacher apologize for directing Batman & Robin. :) 

    Now if only Uwe Boll would apologize for the making of his awful video game movies...

    Yeah, it was awful. In fact, it was so bad that I actually saw it twice in the theaters. I thought I imagining that it was that bad the first viewing...boy was I wrong.

    I am just curious smkspy what did you like about it? I hated it because of the puns and the campiness which is even over the top since Batman Forever. Also Alicia Silverstone didn't impress me nor did George Clooney. Those are my thoughts but please don't take offense. I honestly haven't met many people who did like it so what's your take?

    Nolan needs to bring in Mr. Freeze. But have him played by the man I always thought should have played him in Batman and Robin.

    Patrick Stewart.

    oh I hate Batman and Robin. I saw it twice because I couldn't believe the first time viewing it that it was actually that bad. Strange as it may seem I needed a second viewing. Nevertheless, i blame Warner bros for both films not Schumacher. It seems more like a corporate decision to make batman a more kid friendly franchise than the director.

    The only thing I did like about B&R was Uma though.
