Sorry but I think that's something stupid to say given that BF had good legs and a good total gross (higher than Returns for example, which in its own wasn't the failure it was made out to be), bad word of mouth helped to kill B&R but BF, no way. I remember the general public liked the movie for the most part, I've never understood the revisionist history that the Internet fans apply to Batman Forever just because of B&R.
