After his failure as Batman and Robin stood at a record low of 3.7/10 on IMDB and 12% on Rotten Tomatoes, George Clooney realized his failure. In an interview, the actor got candid and told that he felt he was more responsible than just acting in a movie.

He decided that he would choose better scripts since according to Clooney, “you can’t make a good film out of a bad script”. Clooney however did admit that he had a lot of fun while on the sets of Batman and Robin as the movie became a memorable project of his career.

“Some of the best films have been the least fun experiences and some of the worst, I’ve made lifelong friends out of it. It’s the kind of thing where the memory of the film is very different than how it was reviewed.”

Much like many other DC films, Batman and Robin is available to stream on HBO Max.
