Good point. They were meant to be more like The Punisher than Batman and Robin. I think the superheroic costumes they wore might have thrown some people off, expecting them to act more like The Dynamic Duo. Of course, in the movie that may have been done on purpose to instill a "Holy S#!t" reaction from the audience. In the comics, Big Daddy was actually dressed more like The Punisher in a red mask than he was like Batman. It was the movie producers who decided to change his outfit to a near replica of Batman's.
