To this day I'm perfectly fine with her gaining powers from a cat orgy. She was way more badass than in the comics.
studio execs are the reason we got what we got,mr director wanted a more serious movie to sync up with the previous two
I love Batman Returns and it is my favorite of all the Batman movies. I think Danny Devito did an excellent job as the Penguin. He is both creepy and humorous at the same time.

Ive loved this movie since I was a kid. I was born in 89 so this is the Bat movie of my childhood and I love the alternate versions of the characters. Though it doesn't stand up quite as well as it used to, it still makes for an entertaining watch.
and it remains one of my favorite Christmas movies of all time haha
I'm thinking it was just that father's decision to bring his children out, not the other way around. Probably realized the dark tone to it and figured his kids wouldn't care for it/enjoy it and left. Or he was over-protective and left for that reason. Either reason is fine, but the Nolan movies are kid-friendly if the kid (and their parent) is into it enough lol. And no, I know they're not legit "kid friendly" haha, but I have faith most kids around that age could take it.
"Doesn't everyone on here hate comics? Isn't this a forum where a bunch of middle aged men sit around and bitch about how they hate comics and haven't read them in twenty years?" -Mezzaro-
As for the mask being able to be ripped off - I don't think matters much. You can tell throughout the movie that the material at the neck of his mask isn't supposed to be armor like the rest of the suit. Whatev though.
Remembering about Batman Returns makes me remember all the zany directions Batman in film can go... his next outing on the silver screen oughtta be interesting indeed.
Returns gets some aspects of Gotham and Batman/Bruce better than any of the other films do
