->''There's a line even ''[Joel]'' Schumacher won't cross, and that line is defending the existence of ''Batman & Robin''. Schumacher spends the entire commentary track by himself repeatedly and earnestly apologizing for what he did. No stars to get in the way. No producers. Just an hour and a half of Schumacher pretty much going "God, I am so sorry -- I just ... [[ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime nipples? What the fuck was I thinking?]] Send me your address. I will pay you your money back." There are very few clever anecdotes, precisely zero joyful reminisces -- just a few feeble defenses that quickly give way to shameful apologizing...

All that was required of him, acting-wise, was to stand there and stare vacantly into the vacant eyes of Kristen Stewart, the vacant confused face of Taylor Lautner, and the confusing wiglet attached to Peter Facinelliís head.

Nearly all of principle actors from the film are here, and none of them are good enough at their job to hide how much they hate that fact. Creator/HarrisonFord in particular will read the lines but you can kiss his ass if you think he's going to ''try''. If Music/KanyeWest's agent booked him on ''{{Hee Haw}}'', he'd perform with more enthusiasm. And for this reason, each segment's Actor Indifference will be measured in Angry Han Solo Heads.

->''"It's hardly a 'hidden' reason considering how vocal Kojima was about it, but [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots Old Snake]] is a reflection of Creator/HideoKojima himself. He's apathetic because Kojima is apathetic; he's tired because Kojima is tired; he gave up on his philosophical idealism because Kojima gave up on his philosophical idealism (in regards to the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series at least). Every major characteristic of Old Snake can be traced back to Kojima's own feelings about the series and his fans. The fact that Snake wants to get it all over with so he can die in peace is exactly parallel to Kojima's desire to end the series so he can move on without restrictions...I can't help thinking this is why he allowed a total Westernization of the controls as well; [[FollowTheLeader just blend in]] and hope for the best."''
