Honest Trailers hilariously takes on the wacky mess Batman Forever

It's that time again for Honest Movie Trailers to do the cool guy thing and snark all over something you love — because the worst place on Earth, aka the YouTube comments, section begged for it. The next victim is Joel Schumacher's box-office success and McDonald's cash grab: Batman Forever. You know, the Bat flick millennials love to hate thanks to Seal's "Kiss From a Rose" and bat-nipples.

It calls out all the character flaws, cheesy lines, and hilariously notes that Val Kilmer has the emotional range of an oil painting with his mouth open for the duration of the film. Honest Trailers also provides some trivia that you might not have known before. Apparently, Jim Carrey went on record during a Howard Stern interview confessing that Tommy Lee Jones didn't keep his hatred for Carey a secret. "I hate you. I really don't like you," Jones allegedly told Carrey while hugging him on set.

The best part is how it perfectly explains how Nicole Kidman's character Dr. Chase Meridian is so terribly written. "She's got brains, brawn, and she's not using either of them because all she does is perv out on a stranger in a rubber suit," Honest Trailers narrator Jon Baily jokes.
