Nearly 17 years have passed since Batman & Robin. The George Clooney Apology Tour should be able to pull over, and take a rest. The actor has gone on to become a distinguished director, and he even picked up two Oscars for Syriana and Argo (which he produced). But Batman & Robin will always be Clooneys albatross, and he continued to atone today.
Clooney is the king of self-deprecating humor. The few times Ive been lucky enough to speak with him, he always pokes fun at Leatherheads, his period comedy. Why? Because he shot it in my backyard -- in Charlotte, NC and Clooney never lets me (or himself) forget that it underperformed.
