Katell Quillévéré's family-based drama follows Suzanne, a teenage mother who falls for a gangster
Movie spin-off from the 60s TV show. Adam West and Burt Ward pull their pants up over their tights to save the world from four of their fearsome foes
Holy camp classics! It's Batman as you used to know and love him, before Tim Burton sent the superhero back to the dark side.
There's nothing moody about this jolly piece of comic-strip trash. It's got all the elements that made the television series a Saturday morning favourite - Biff! Kapow! fight sequences, crazy camera angles, a litany of alliterations, great sight-gags, woeful jokes and the…way that…Adam…West (Bruce Wayne/Batman) pauses in all…the wrong places.
As a special treat, it also features all the TV show's major villains. The Joker (Romero), Riddler (Gorshin), Penguin (Meredith) and Catwoman (Meriwether) have left Gotham City to the petty crooks and teamed up to take on the world. Can the Caped Crusader foil the fiendish foursome? With Robin (Ward) at his side, Alfred (Napier) serving tea in the Batcave and the Batcopter armed with shark repellent, he's got every chance.
As a child, you might not have appreciated just how funny the TV show was. The film is hilarious, with its tongue fixed firmly in its cheek. It takes a special kind of genius to come up with a line like, "But wait! It happened at sea. See? C...for Catwoman!".
Fluffy, good-natured, endlessly quotable fun, just like you remember it
