Peel went to see Batman in the cinema and mentioned what he thought of the film on his 23 August 1989 show:
"I went to see Batman last night and I resolve never going to see it. I wanted to be the only person in Britain who hadn't seen Batman and I'm not a film critic obviously, but if you asked me what I thought of it, I would say by and large, it was better than watching the re-runs of the Two Ronnies on television".
