Batman Forever (1995) (part 11 of 14)

A jump cut later, and it’s presumably the next night, and there’s some kind of party going on. Trite Voiceover Woman informs us that all of Gotham has turned out to see the gala unveiling of Ed’s new and improved Box, here at the “glamorous” Ritz Gotham. This sentence is particularly funny if you live in the UK, where a “box” is a term used to describe a male athletic supporter.

Inside, it’s the sort of garish mess you’d expect, and Ed is getting his ass kissed by the press. Dangling on his arm is Drew Barrymore’s Sugar, so presumably Two Face has lent him one of his chicks. How rock and roll is that? I wonder if the guys in Judas Priest ever did that.

As soon as Bruce walks in, the press converges on him, and Ed gets all pissed that his thunder’s been stolen. Sugar points out that Bruce is much better at being Bruce Wayne than Ed is. Ed tells her to shut her pie hole, because when no one’s around, he’s a red flat-top sporting, rouge-wearing, green leotard-clad badass.
