Super Capers
A wannabe superhero joins a team of bumbling heroes-in-training on a time-traveling mission to thwart an evil plot in this high-flying comedy featuring Clint Howard, Adam West, Tom Sizemore, and Doug Jones. Ed Gruberman (Justin Whalin) may not possess any actual superpowers, but his passion for fighting crime rivals that of even the greatest comic-book do-gooders. When Ed becomes a member of The Super Capers, an oddball team of aspiring superheroes, it seems as if his dream of fighting crime for real is about to come true. Upon discovering evidence of an evil plot involving gold bullion, an alluring femme fatale, and a powerful criminal mastermind, Ed travels back in time to prevent a disaster the likes of which the world has never seen. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    passably amusing


    This spoof of, you guessed it, superheroes, isn't a classic like The Incredibles, but it is better than Superhero Movie. A nebbish (Justin Whalin) who is an aspiring superhero gets sent to a halfway house with other would-be caped crusaders, some of whom have powers but none of whom exactly come across as superheroic material. Nevertheless, he sees a chance to prove himself to his new friends when a crafty judge (Michael Rooker) sets his evil plans in motion. Some appropriate casting, especially Adam West as a cabbie who was once 'ManBat,' makes up for the inevitable barrage of superhero & (of course) Star Wars jokes which constitute most of this film's attempts at humor.
