You would think that after throwing Selina a good 30/40 stories from a window, Shreck would immediately go down there to dispose of the body. Even the Gotham City Police Department isn't stupid enough not to look at the body, look up at the shattered window, and put two and two together.

    He did walk away from the window after he pushed her, maybe she was awoken before he had time to reach her.

    Batman's suit is designed to take off his eye shadow if he decides to rip off his mask.

      When facing a hideous penguin man, the only appropriate response is "AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!"

        Spend enough time around cats, and you'll inherit the same nine lives that they have.

          In a hot make-out session, nothing sucks worse than napalm burns and puncture wounds.

              For such a shy, dowdy woman, Selina had an awfully inappropriate latex oufit hanging around in her closet, just waiting to be turned into a cat-suit.

                When you're a former circus freak, with a big nose and misshapen hands, chances are the hot feline-like chick walking around in the skintight outfit isn't gonna be into you. Heck, she might not even want to touch you to scratch you...

                  I think Selina Kyle could kick Vicki Vale's butt any day of the week (and twice on Saturdays). She also doesn't scream as much. On the downside, she will try to impale you on her claws... tough call, Bruce.

                    I'd go with Selina. Vicki's scream gets on my last freakin' NERVE.

                        The deployment of the Batmobile's shields got awfully slow. Must have been running on Windows Vista...

                          Deliberately causing The Joker's death at the end of the first film must have opened a Pandora's box for Batman, since he's downright vicious in this one. Using the Batmobile's flame jet to set a flame-breathing baddie on fire; strapping a bomb to a fat guy and throwing him into a construction pit...

                            The Batmobile can fire a bolt at a Skull Biker's chest whose back is facing the Batmobile.

                            After Pee Wee went through his big adventure through Hollywood to get his bike back, he eventually dumped that talkative girl and married the waitress he met after bringing her back from Paris. Unfortunately, they had a deformed baby together.

                              It must take some mad skills with a sewing machine to turn a vinyl jacket into an outfit that covers your entire body from head to ankles, including your hands.

                                    At some point in time, somebody thought it was a good idea to cast Pee-Wee Herman as a father... a bad father, but a father nonetheless.

                                            Batman's just jealous that Oswald's a genuine freak and he (Batman) has to wear a mask.

                                                Batman should have stuck with voice activation for the Batmobile's shields. If I were him I'd beat up the guy who convinced him to change to a more traditional remote control.

                                                  Maybe Selina *is* just a screwed-up sorority chick who's getting back at her daddy for not giving her that pony when she turned 16. I still wouldn't screw with her.

                                                    I just love a big, strong man who's not afraid to prove it with someone half his size.

                                                          Good catch. I didn't notice that one before.

                                                          It may be Michelle Pfeiffer and Danny DeVito that everyone remembers from this movie, but Christopher Walken's the true villain. Even though half the time when I mention the film, people tend to forget he was even in it.

No-- I push the button, and *then* the tree lights up." Considering she's already done it once. There's a blonde joke in there somewhere.

Seriously, you think given the fact that Selina's a Shreck employee, they'd use a different advertising hook.

They seemed to aim them pretty accurately at the Batskiboat as it was heading towards Penguin's lair; good thing Batman was paying attention.

(And replaced with that bouncy monstrosity he used in "Forever".)

A total of three times that day? Jeez, doesn't she have anything better to do?

Kind of ironic, though, because she'd only recently become a strong woman herself.

Then it clicked empty. It was a six-shot revolver, though, which tells me two things. One was that the dead, fat clown guy had already fired one shot from it (or left one chamber empty) before getting killed. And the other is that, even if Shreck *hadn't* fired one shot at Bruce, he wouldn't have had enough bullets in that gun to finish Selina off. (Of course, I'm sure he didn't anticipate that four shots wouldn't kill her!)
