I got over the whole fannish reaction very early on... way before release, in fact. So the whole "How come it ain't Selina Kyle, what happened to 'Batman', etc." thing was old news when I sat to watch. Judging it as simply a film, I can now say it's a bad one. Or rather, an incredibly uninteresting one.
It takes a lot of cash, some good visuals, a quality cast and just hurls them all into the litter box. "Oh, our superhero's a girl, so let's do our conspiracy thing in the world of cosmetics!!" YAWN. Sharon Stone looks as bored as the viewer, and if one were performing some kind of thespian litmus test, the chemistry between Halle Berry and Benjamin Bratt wouldn't even register.
The only good thing connected with this MASSIVE flop, is seeing Berry collecting her Razzie, good sport that she is.
In short, avoid.

Glossy, big-budget live action film based on the D.C. comic character created by Bob Kane. Halle Berry stars as Patience Phillips, a talented but excrutiatingly shy graphic artist who, in a mysterious twist of fate, transforms into a woman with the stealth, power and incredible heightened senses of a cat. Sleek, agile and extremely dangerous, she begins a series of nocturnal crime sprees across the city, treading the thin line between good and bad. But things get complicated when police officer Tom Lone (Benjamin Bratt), with whom Patience has begun a tentative romance, becomes fascinated by the elusive Catwoman to a point well past the call of duty.
Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play. Shy graphic designer Patience Phillips (Halle Berry) unwittingly overhears the diabolical plans of her boss and his evil wife Laurel Hedare (Sharon Stone) which results in her murder by the pair. Mysteriously resurrected by feline forces, Patience, now endowed with enhanced speed and reflexes, is reborn as Catwoman, toying with the fine line between villain and hero as she plots her revenge.
