The muscled costumes ARE a bit too much. Like what was Bruce thinking?? LOL But I love this film. I think Jim Carrey as The Riddler was brilliant and Val Kilmer was a great Batman. But yeah, super queer. Which is all the yay.

 I do agree with most of the article but not the part about the part where you wrote that homophobia played any part in the skewering of Schumacher’s. Let's be real here. The movie was pure trash. Homophobia playes no part in people's ,,hatred"  for the movie. Batman allways was a loved francise and movies like Batman forever hurt Batman fans.
