YMMV / Batman: The Movie

  • Anvilicious: The shots of Batman and Robin fastening their seat belts; Robin's "Support Your Police" line, the alcohol speech mentioned above
  • Ass Pull: Batman's Everyone's "Deductions" sure sound like are this. See "Bat Deduction" on the main page for the crowning example of this. The fact that he's right about just about everything, no matter how absurd, makes it all the more hilarious.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Catwoman has always been shown to be attracted to the Caped Crusader. It's possible that this is why she doesn't fight him during the submarine battle.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
  • Ho Yay:
    • Robin seemed less embarrassed about listening in on Bruce and Kitka and more irritated/jealous.
    • The Riddler almost sounded like he had a bit of a crush on Batman.
    Riddler: Oh, but I must, I must! Outwitting Batman is my sole delight, my heaven on earth, my very paradise!
  • Memetic Mutation: "Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb" and "Shark-Repellent Bat Spray", in addition to all the other memes from the show.
  • Moment of Awesome: The movie, while for the most part cheesy, has Batman's stunning rebuke, "You. FILTHY. CRIMINALS!" He puts so much hate into that one line it puts Christian Bale to shame.
  • Narm Charm
  • So Bad, It's Good
  • What an Idiot!: Batman's reaction upon learning that The Pentagon sold a pre-atomic submarine to a man named "P.N. Guin", who was at least kind enough to leave a P.O. Box address.
    • It could also overlap with a subtle case of What the Hell, Hero?. He's polite about the news, but Batman is clearly not happy with the fact Penguin has a submarine.
    • Commodore Schmiddlapp takes the cake though. How do you not figure out something's wrong when you're on a boat yet not allowed to leave your own room?
      • And the only service is a clown in a purple suit?note
