Batman Returns

A couple of movies came to mind that embodied the various ideas of camp. Batman Returns (1992) with Danny DeVito and Michelle Pfeiffer can be described as a very campy film. First of all, Michelle Pfeiffer play catwoman, but Danny DeVito plays Penguin. It is a “mode of enjoyment” and can be seen as a movie in which the characters “propose a comic vision of the world” and is also a movie that is playful and not serious (Sontage, 1961).  Overall, the movie was one of those films that can be considered “good because its awful” (Sontage, 1961).
