This isn't really as good as the TV episodes, which were really great, with cameos by an amazing list of guest stars too long for this space, and snappy dialogue full of double-entendres. This film sacrificed much of those great elements and dialogue nuances in favor of showing off all the bat-toys, that were soon to be marketed by Corgi (UK) and many other companies. But oh, how I loved my Corgi Batmobile!
Utterly ridiculous, but with its knowing sense of humour and sense of absurdity this turns out to be a great, unserious work that, in an era when this material is portrayed as deeply important, is almost subversive yet lovable. Particular highlights for me are the bizarre non-sequiturs that take place (including the 'porpoise' line) and Frank Gorshin's maniac and scene stealing role as The Riddler.
