Synopsis


Mystery Men
Can seven not-so-superheroes save a city of the future? Based on the comic book series created by Bob Burden, Mystery Men is set in the teeming metropolis of Champion City, where noble superhero Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear) keeps the peace and sees that justice is done. When Captain Amazing mysteriously disappears, his archenemy Casanova Frankenstein (Geoffrey Rush) sees his opportunity to seize power and bend the city to his evil will, with his associate Dr. Annabel Leek (Lena Olin) at his side. However, Casanova will not succeed without a fight, as the The Mystery Men leap into action. The Mystery Men are not your ordinary Men of Steel; in fact, they're barely superheroes at all. Mr. Furious (Ben Stiller) has one gift: throwing tantrums. Blue Raja (Hank Azaria) is a deadly hand with spoons and forks (but not knives). Shoveler (William H. Macy) can dig with superior speed and force. The Bowler (Janeane Garafalo) rolls the ball with superhuman precision. Spleen (Paul Reubens) has a gaseous problem that he's turned into a weapon against evildoers. Invisible Boy (Kel Mitchell) is convinced he can become invisible at will, but he hasn't actually done it yet. And The Sphinx (Wes Studi) does have an unusual power: he can cut metal objects with his mind. Aided by addled gadget master Dr. Heller (Tom Waits), the Mystery Men make their move against Casanova and Annabel, who feel just threatened enough to make things personal by kidnapping Mr. Furious' girlfriend Monica (Claire Forlani). Mystery Men marked the feature directorial debut of Kinka Usher, who previously directed such ads as the Taco Bell talking chihuahua and the Dairy Association's "Got Milk?" ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Ben Stiller as Mr. Furious do I need to say more?? This is a movie made before its time. If it come out today, it would rock the box office based on the over production of those superhero movies!! Oh yeah, Paul Rubin as the spleen equals GENIUS!! You will have to see it to find out his superpower. We will just say it is intoxicating.

    This movie remains entertaining no matter how many times I watch it; some of the jokes even get funnier. It is a great vehicle for an interesting ensemble cast - even actors I don't care for, like Ben Stiller. One of Hank Azaria's best roles, and makes great use of Tom Waites' unique style and talent. Superheros for people who don't like superheros ... "The Shoveler is hammered!"

    It's too bad this is in the $5 bin these days, but customers are lucky for it and have no excuse for not owning it. A great movie, very quote-worthy.

    I was expecting a bit more with the great cast, but it was still a fun film. It's worth watching just for Tom Waits. Tom Waits!

    Ben Stiller can get mad, like nobodies business. Hank Azaria deserves so much acclaim.
