“How about slippery when wet”


I’m surprised they were able to get into a PG-13 the line “how about slippers when wet” in reference to Poison Ivy talking about how she is lubricating from her vagina and wanting to have sex with Robin. Their hands are off screen in the same shot but it appears they are touching/rubbing each other’s crotch. I wonder if there was more to the makeout scene between Ivy and Robin than what ultimately appears in the film.

There's this YouTube reviewer named Captain Logan, who runs a channel called Geekvolution. And in his "Superhero Rewind" review of Batman & Robin, he said that the biggest reason why this movie is so despised is that it couldn't decided who it's supposed to be marketed for. It's meant to be more kid-friendly to counteract the criticisms that Tim Burton faced from parents when he did Batman Returns. And yet, Joel Schumacher seems to want to still appeal to adults. So he has Uma Thurman in scenes spouting these sexual innuendoes/double entendres just so the movie could still maintain a "naughty edge" to it. Captain Logan compared this to giving a traditional girls toy like a My Little Pony doll and pairing it with a Lightsaber.

Double Entendre?
I didnt know this phrase actually existed. I do it all the time but nobody gets me.

That's nothing that a 13 year old shouldn't be able to handle.

They should have had a sex or intimate scene with Uma’s Ivy.
