4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting take on a reunion show October 9, 2005
Format:DVD
I bought this a few weeks ago and I must say it was very interesting. While not nearly as funny as the original Batman show, I liked the flashbacks to what was going on in Adam West's and Burt Ward's respective lives during those days! Some may have been shocked by Adam and Burt's former womanizing but to me, that humanized even more in my eyes and I applaud them for having the guts to admit that.

Anyway, for those familiar with the old series, this is a fun romp as they try to solve who stoled the Batmobile! Still, I wish they could've done it a few years earlier while the two other main villians were still alive. By that, I am refering to Ceasar Romero (The Joker) and Burgess Merideth (The Penguin). Since this film was made, Frank Gorshin (The Riddler) has passed on though I am not sure about Julie Newmar as I think she's still alive (I know that Earth Kitt still is as she's also a former Catwoman).

On a personal note, I also have to applaud whoever picked the actors that portrayed the younger versions of Adam and Burt (especially Burt as it was dead on)! I noticed they did had to pad the stomach a bit for the actor who played Adam West because was physically in much better shape than Adam ever was! LOL!

I also liked the hip-hop version of the old Batman theme. It was an updated take on it BUT still true and respectful to the old theme as well as the more disco type one they played when Adam and Burt first put on their costumes for the first day of shooting. While I have nothing against rap and such, many times they tailor it to "being real" and that nonsense! I am glad whoever made those two pieces of music stayed true to the spirit of the show.

Finally, the references to Lyle Waggoner, the man that ALMOST got to play Batman!

5.0 out of 5 stars Corny, but fun! April 29, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's not a "movie" but a reunion show of the corniest kind. I loved every minute of it! Always good to see Adam West and Burt Ward together. I remember as a kid meeting Burt Ward in the Robin costume, and asking the dumbest questions! The campy show may have ruined the darkness that Batman was supposed to be (although resurrected by Frank Miller) but the show was a fun romp as is this reunion special.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Retro Batman!!! April 11, 2005
Format:DVD
Before I begin, I will admit that I am biased. I have always liked Batman in his many appearances. (This includes the Adam West episodes of the 60s, the movies with Michael Keaton, and the version with Val Kilmer. Not to mention the phenomenal animated episodes where Kevin Conroy voiced Batman. (And many famous actors like Mark Hamil, Paul Williams, and Michael York, provided voices for villains.) This also includes the animated movie where Batman exchanges harsh words and punches with Superman. I even liked the Scooby Doo video where Batman and Robin made a guest appearance. And of course the surprisingly frightening 'Return of the Joker.') Well, now to the subject at hand. This is ofcourse a reunion show. But this movie really takes an interesting approach. It throws in an adventure, where we see Adam and Burt have to once again prove themselves heroes. Keeping with the reunion, the key to the mystery lies in their past. And they exchange stories of the past that almost never get dull. Some of these stories include Bert's financial hardships before he got the role, Adam and Bert's first look at the Batcave and Batmobile, Bert's frequent visits to the hospital, how Cesar Romero (The Joker) refused to shave his mustache, some bad publicity the show faced, Bert's shattered marriage, the coming of Batgirl, up until the tragic ending of the series. Perhaps the best thing about this movie is that while it stays with the campy pattern of the 60s episodes, there are a mix of emotions in the stories. Some will make you laugh, while others may make you very sad, or even surprise you. But funny, suspenseful, sad, or surprising, THERE IS NOT A DULL MOMENT! While there is a very sad element in seeing why the series was cancelled, we can also know that this was but a temporary setback for Batman. Read more ›

Seeing as I'm a huge Bat-Fan (hence the name), I was immensely entertained by this here Reunion flick. The chemistry between Adam & Burt is still as strong as it was back in the 60's, and the "flashback" cuts are pretty comical sometimes. Not the best Batman movie ever, but it's cool to have if you love the old TV show like me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice show, but not what we really want... October 15, 2005
Format:DVD
I must admit to not having bought this DVD as yet but I do remember seeing the reunion special on TV awhile back. The "plot" of the reunion show, aka the stolen Batmobile, was a little silly but I give the producers credit for wanting to do something other than just having Adam and Burt stand around reminiscing. It was nice to see these two guys doing well and enjoying talking about the old days. Die-hard fans of the old TV show will enjoy this immensely, but I doubt it will have that much appeal to non-fans.

What REALLY needs to happen though, is for Fox and Warner to get their collective heads out of their you-know-whats, come to an agreeement on licensing and get the three seasons' worth of the Batman TV show on DVD. Lord knows there are a lot of people who want it, including yours truly. Quit being so frickin greedy, both of you, and get it done.

I know this was done a number of years later than the TV series and follow-up movie, but since it had the original cast it measured up to the original show and movie.
