Spin-off from the Batman series of comics created by Bob Kane. Catwoman is an adversary of the Batman.

Synopsis:

Halle Berry, doing her utmost to persuade the Academy to take back her Oscar, plays Patience, a flighty would-be artist who is bumped off after she uncovers the nefarious corporate secrets of a cosmetics company. Brought to life by feline mouth-to-mouth, she acquires interesting cat powers and cat behaviors, and begins eating tuna straight out of the can, stealing jewels and carrying a whip. Benjamin Bratt is the upright, studly cop who serves as her obligatory love interest, and Sharon Stone is her icy rival. There is a diverting element of campy, kinky sexuality in this mess, and lots of bright colors and stroboscopic editing effects. In the end, though, you might find yourself thinking back fondly on "Garfield."
