It was over the top, IMO. Especially on Pfeiffer's part.
But I view the Bat/Cat, Bruce/Selina relationship to be more complex than being sexually charged and driven by attraction. There's a moral grey line of whether they should even be in each others company as well as attraction, admiration, curiosity, and some disdain that I think Nolan managed to capture with his version. Don't get me wrong, I would have liked more scenes between them, but I liked what he delivered.
