I don't get the complaints. The relationship between Bruce and Vicki is one of the more natural ones seen in superhero films, especially of the era. The “dinner” scene alone is more grounded and more powerful than anything found in most superhero movie franchises, or movie franchises period, for that matter.
Too true. I guess people have been spoiled by things like Spider Man, where Tobey's Spider-Man was in love with MJ since he was six.
