I saw it in 1992. I was 12. It was my first exposure to Batman.

There was nothing "gross" about his body language or the way he used his mouth. That's the first time I've ever seen anyone label it like that.
DeVito's Penguin was disgusting, and he was supposed to be disgusting. It was intentional. He's a freak that lives in the sewers. He was meant to be grotesque. That disgusting freaky nature of the character is probably one of the things that had the soccer moms up in arms in the backlash the movie got.
