You all kind of have to watch this video of Ben Affleck talking to Jimmy Fallon about his kids—and singing Frozen's "Let It Go" horribly. (Contrary to what some critics say, he should actually stick with his day job!) Poor Ben's trying to be his kids' superhero, since now's his chance because he's the new Batman in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice; but, they even like the way Jimmy Fallon sings "Let It Go" better than he does.

Ben appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his new flick, Gone Girl, which everyone's talking about. In addition to making an adorable mess out of "Let It Go," he talks about how his two-year-old son, Benjamin, loves Frozen more than Batman, thanks to daughters Violet, 8, and Seraphina, 5.

“If I was doing the sequel to Frozen, I would be a hero. My two older daughters could give a sh*t about Batman and they've now passed that affection onto my son. He's always like, 'Papa, can I watch Frozen?' And I'm, like, 'No, dude, it's not on again!'"

Ben also talks about being an intense sports dad. "My oldest daughter started playing basketball," he says, "and I'm already that guy. You remember in Parenthood, Ron Howard's brother was yelling at the kid from the sideline? That's me. I'm like, 'Bend your knees!' I don't even know if you should bend your knees; I’m terrible at basketball!" Ha!
