Movie Synopsis: Having witnessed his parents' brutal murder as a child, millionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton) fights crime in Gotham City disguised as Batman, a costumed hero who strikes fear into the hearts of villains. But when a deformed madman who calls himself "The Joker" (Jack Nicholson) seizes control of Gotham's criminal underworld, Batman must face his most ruthless nemesis ever while protecting both his identity and his love interest, reporter Vicki Vale (Kim Basinger).

Favorite Quotes

The Joker: [fuming] Batman... Batman... Can somebody tell me what kind of a world we live in, where a man dressed up as a *bat* gets all of my press? This town needs an enema!

Bruce Wayne: LIGHTS OUT! Now you wanna get nuts? Come on! Let's get nuts.

[reaches for a pair of glasses in his pocket and puts them on]

The Joker: You wouldn't hit a guy with glasses on, would you? Huh?

[Batman punches him]
