I lasted about ten minutes watching it (although I am taping and will probably speed through it later).
It was cool to see Curtis Armstrong as "alfred." To some, he's booger, but to me, he'll always be Herbert Viola.

This movie was amazing. As a total mark for the old show, and the movie, I thoroughly enjoyed this. I think those two dudes who played yound West and Ward did a great job getting the personas and mannerisms down pat.. And even the corniest of jokes in this thing had me rolling with laughter.
Just one question, who was that who played young Frank Gorshin? I know I've seen his face before, but dammit I just couldn't place it. Any help?
For Angel fans, "Young Burt Ward"'s wife appears to be Amy Acker (Fred).
Cheesy as hell. Lotsa fun.
I have a special friend. He's the baby Jesus and I love him and...and...he don't give me no s**t and he don't f**k around and he's just the f**king coolest guy and I wanna say I love the baby Jesus.I can't say enough.I love the baby Jesus and I think...he's the best thing and he's really great when he shares his love for everbody.You know what I mean?I can't even see a manger without thinkin' about him,eh?I just love the Jesus.I've only been into him for a couple of hours though,but I'm really into him. --Bruce McCulloch
Brett Rickaby starred on the shoe 'The Strip' that was advertised way to much on Smackdown during it's first year. He's also done a small bit on Angel, which is more likely for any of you to have noticed him from.

This movie had no business being on television and I can't believe how it made it to air. How many two hour movies feel like six? It actually broke the laws of physics! (But it was all brought back to our gravity by Burt Ward's *tremendous* gut - check out the scene where it's framed perfectly by the rope tied around him - HELLO)
Despite ALL that, it was totally awesometacular. Even though I came close to calling almost every "twist," they were all JUST different enough from what I had expected to be (slightly) surprising. Also, I think they made the right choice with all the blatant kayfabe-breaking as Adam West is surely the king of "wink/nod" method acting. It's also a little creepy how Ward's voice hasn't changed AT ALL over the past million years. In closing, I'm glad Kim has already given up on "Six Feet Under" so I could sit through this thing instead.
Okay, this would be the part of the thread where I tell DrOp that we got a new VCR/DVD player on Sunday. Then the piewife let me set it up. Mistake there.
So, I hit one button record at 7:45 PM and let it tape to the end. But if you don't switch the little button from SP to SLP, it only tapes 2 hours worth of show on the tape, not 6 hours. So, yup, I got the frist 45 minutes of the Batman movie in somewhat snowy vision.
So, DrOp, I have no tape to send... in fact, now I need a tape!
I hang my head in shame.
He's Rolie Polie Olie - and in his world of curves and curls, he's the swellest kid around.
I WANTED to buy into it, I really did. But you're pretty dead on with your evaluation. I wasn't eagle-eyed for technical inconsistencies, but the acting was a major red flag. It was most obvious in the "alien attack" segment.
