Dark Knight fails for the lack of stubble on The Joker

In The Dark Knight, what was with The Joker never having any stubble? At the very least, during the interrogation scene he should have had some, since he had been an entire day in makeup. Instead he is as clean shaven then as he was at the beginning of the convoy assault.

This totally ruins the movie for me and now I regret ever seeing it.

Also the same thing goes for the non burnt side of Two Face/Harvey Dent.

You should also regret cluttering the Movie area with your mundane thread, rather than posting your keen observation in the months-old existing Dark Knight thread.

Clearly The Joker lost his ability to grow facial hair when he fell in the vat of chemicals that turned the color of his skin to white, red, and black. Duh.

A guy on another forum I go to felt the film fell apart because the Joker told Dent he didn't have a plan, when obviously he did have a very well thought out plan.

The Joker never said he *didn't* have a plan. He was just mocking everybody else's.

The lack of stubble proves the Joker is actually a woman.

Perhaps the facial scarring damaged the hair follicles.

Maybe it's because having him grow stubble would humaninze him and make him less threatening, which of course would conflict with everything he stands for in the movie.

My brother said the film failed because Joker wasn't handcuffed after Batman's interrogation. They just let him sit there with broken shards of glass all around him. And on top of that, they put a cop in with him... For what reason? Well to further the plot you fool!

Gillette wanted too much money for product placement.

There goes any chance of an Oscar for Heath now. He'll be lucky if he gets a MTV Movie Award after this scandal.

I heard the Batman licked the stubble off of his face and that's why he talks so funny.

Obama: "I Can't Grow Facial Hair"

Just sayin'. He's undoubtedly not the only one.

Nah. He's too busy being a Mario Brother for that.
