The List: Top five Arnold Schwarzenegger puns in Batman and Robin

It's on ITV2 tonight, so let's have a pre-emptive chortle at Mr Freeze's one-liners

It’s a slow news day, so let’s make the best of things and have a look at what’s on the box tonight. Hurrah! Batman and Robin’s on ITV2 this evening. While the world seems unanimous in proclaiming Heath Ledger the best big-screen Batman villain ever, I disagree. It’s obvious that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s unique performance in Joel Schumacher’s 1997 festival of camp has dropped out of the public consciousness. Shaven-headed, painted blue and playing a character called Mr Freeze, whose superpower has something or other to do with the cold, Arnie’s near-constant barrage of ice-related puns has to be heard to be believed. Here, check out five of his best Christmas cracker-fillers below:

Also, while this can’t be embedded, the sight of blue Arnie in a bathrobe conducting a singalong is, quite simply, mind-blowing.
