Joel Schumacher's Batman

There are a few people out there who will defend Joel Schumacher's Batman and Robin and Batman Forever, but most fans of the Dark Knight agree that his Batman movies are the worst thing to ever happen to the caped crusader.  Perhaps part of the reason Joel missed so badly is that he didn't get the character or his motivation, as illustrated by this quote from the director: "This Batman is way too busy to still be tormented by the death of his parents."  I think this shows in a nutshell why his Batman just didn't work.
