This has gotten some second-tier reviews in comparison with the brilliant "Thumb Wars", but I enjoyed it very much in its own right. Taking off from both Tim Burton's "Batman" and the TV version, this is hilarious stuff, and fans of Steve Oedekerk's other "Thumb" gems will want to own them all. Funny additonal feature : "cast interviews".

Not since Lok Groundrunner found out Dark Helmet was his mother has one of these Oedekerk inspired films made me laugh so much. Bat Thumb is all about Wuce Bane's pursuit of GAAAThumbs evil doer, NO FACE! With his gender bending sidekick Blue Jay and drunk butler Fred. Bat Thumb tries to save the citizens of his fair city from having there faces removed. While looking good for the ladies. If you liked Thumb Wars and are a Bat Man fan (Movie or T.V.) this is a must for you DVD collection...

This is the only Thumb movie I've seen so far, but it's inspired me to start buying the rest. The "facial" expressions on the thumb actors are hilarious, as is the whole concept of a movie "starring" thumbs! Other characters' responses to Bat Thumb's sidekick Blue Jay are very funny. My family enjoyed how this film spoofs both the old TV Batman show and the Michael Keaton movie. We've watched this over and over, and it's still very funny--we're not tired of it yet.

Bat Thumb is the funniest of the thumb movies ever. I don't remember laughing as hard since seeing Monty Python and the Holy Grail. To those who find the talking thumbs a little too creepy for your liking, then stop here. If you like the creepy thumbs, continue. This movie is just too funny for words, and has so many lines that you'll be quoting for many days after watching the movie. I recommend this movie to people who like weird but funny humor. It's good.

By far the best in a long line of funny spoofs by Steve Odekerk. Truly hillarious. Anyone who is a fan of batman will love it. Every one of us knows a certain somebody like blue jay (watch the movie and you'll get it) so that adds to the enjoyment. A definate must own. Also check out other Thumb movies for a few good laughs

This movie is hilarious and the best thumb movie i've seen. The people that don't get it are people who aren't to bright they like average humor but if you have an I.Q. of at least 50 and like off beat humor then you will enjoy this great thumb movie.

Bat Thumb is a clever little short that makes me laugh. It has humor, sarcasm, wit and innuendos that are not always for children. (But the kids will love it.) They are actually Thumbs that have faces that will be superimposed on them.
It actually parodies the Tim Burton version of Batman (with Michael Keaton) and duplicates scenes and situations that are all twisted and almost ... at times. The story is Bat Thumb gets a new partner - not by choice - Blue Jay (not Robin) and has to defeat the evil `No Face' (a thumb with no face on it!)
Steve Oedekerk (Best known for the Ace Ventura films, Jimmy Neutron, The Nutty Professor and recently Kung Pao.) is the writer, producer and creator of several of these O Entertainment productions - including Thumtanic, Thumb Wars and The Blair Thumb Project. He is slapstick and sarcastic in nature and these Thumbs have personality and an almost weird charm about them.
This is funny, short and they are technically well done. The art direction, special effects and even the music - which I thing is clearly superior - all make this adventure fun and exciting. To those who like oddball humor this is a must DVD to own. The extras include hysterical commentaries, outtakes, previews and storyboards. Get This DVD. (8-13-02)

Bat Thumb is one of Oedekerk's best. This movie is as funny as Thumbtanic but not as good as Thumb Wars. The movie takes place in GaaaThumb city. It's about the local millionaire Wuce Bane, and how he is secretly the superhero Bat Thumb. Bat Thumb along with his sidekick/wussy Blue Jay are against the city villain "No Face." No face makes a formula that he puts on the city that makes everybody have no face just like him. Will Bat Thumb save the city in time?

The Bat Thumb feature is only about 30 minutes, but it's packed full of silliness. I think it's good that the feature is so short because otherwise the joke might wear off, but it's perfect at this length. To fully appreciate this DVD, however, you MUST watch the extras. The behind-the-scenes and interviews with the characters are just as hilarious as the movie. I also have Thumb Wars, and I think the Bat Thumb DVD is better because of the extras.
