Batman Returns

Audio problem: The Batmobile is supposed to be powered by a Jet engine. The sound in the sequel is dubbed rather flawlessly except for two brief instances when you can hear the 8 cylinder piston engine.

Audio problem: When Selina is pushed from to window, her scream doesn't match her mouth movement. (00:27:05)

Audio problem: When Selina returns home from work the first time and Miss Kitty comes in through the window, Selina pours some milk into the cat bowl and Miss Kitty begins to lap the milk (out of shot). Then, without a break in the lapping, Miss Kitty meows again as a cue for one of Selina's lines, but the lapping sounds continue underneath the meow. It's an open-mouth meow, too, and, as far as I know, no cat can both meow and drink at the same time. (00:22:45)

Audio problem: When the mayor's baby is first stolen, the audience gasps in a very fake way. When the Penguin reveals his plan to steal the first-born sons to the party members later in the movie, they gasp the exact same sound effect. They actually do it a third time, later in Penguin's speech, but it's very quiet.

Audio problem: When Oswald holds Catwoman's cat down to the bed while she puts his bird in her mouth, hisses and meows are heard from the cat, but it doesn't open it's mouth. (01:03:25)

Audio problem: On the batmobile screen, the Penguin says "Just relax…" but when Batman plays the Penguin's audio back on the tannoy speakers, it is "Hey, just relax…" (01:20:30 - 01:26:00)

Trivia: Harvey Dent, who would later become Two Face, was originally going to be in this film instead of Max Schreck. The plan was to have Catwoman turn him into Two Face the same way she ended up killing Schreck, except of course Dent obviously would've survived and become Two Face.

Question: After she falls, what exactly makes Selyna Kyle go nuts? And what is she trying to do to her apartment?

Answer: The film keeps it ambiguous. There are two ways to look at it. Scenario A- She literally died and is brought back to life by the alley-cats somehow, adapting some of their traits. Or... Scenario B- The trauma of falling and sustaining a head-injury, along with her paranoia after Schreck tried to kill her, has driven her mad, and she uses her connection with cats to build a new persona. (Which is supported by the fact that all the things she claims "kills" her with each of her "nine lives" wouldn't actually have killed her. Ex. Her one fall is broken by the kitty-litter truck. Max doesn't hit her in any vital organs when he shoots her. Etc.) Her destroying her apartment is her lashing out at all the things she used to hold dear- her vision of a normal life, etc. It's symbolic of her purging the past and embracing the future. (Plus, oftentimes when people throw fits, they'll smash stuff up).

Chosen answer: She just died, and came back to life. The shock drove her mad. She really isn't doing anything but destroying it.
