Fun sendup of super hero films that mostly goes for the low hanging comedy branches when it comes to juvenile and bathroom humor. What could have been a smarter satire of super heroes is still somewhat funny, but could have been much better with smarter writing.

Feels kind of like '97 Batman and Robin film, except it's funny on purpose. More of a satirical approach to the cartoon-y superhero lore that felt ahead of it's time. One of the most underrated movies I know of. I still find it quite enjoyable even to this day.

Funny and cheesy, this movie is so goofy that you can't help but laugh. A band of want-to-be superheros try to stop crime with their useless "talents." Stiller is Mr. Furious who gets furious. Macy is The Shoveler who uses a shovel to hit bads guys with. Azaria is The Blue Raja who throws silverware (forks and spoons -- never knives).

Mystery Men review

A cult comedy that has a few special effects and ludicrous fight sequences. Archenemy of popular Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear), Casanova Frankenstein (Geoffrey Rush), tries to take over the city. Mr. Furious (Ben Stiller) has the ability to have tantrums, Blue Raja (Hank Azaria) is a deadly hand with spoons and forks (but not knives) while Shoveler (William H. Macy) is good with a shovel, Spleen (Paul Reubens) fart has an effect on people, Bowler (Janeane Garafalo) has a powerful bowling bowl and Invisible Boy (Kel Mitchell) can become invisible. Well-casted, had some laughable scenes and soundtrack wonderful. It's weak-point would be the iffy dialogues and somewhat not so menacing antagonist though Rush always delivers no matter the role. Mystery Men is a decent comedy about belie...

Awesome cast, funny film!

This is one of my favorite movies! Right around the time when the various movie companies were trying to start cashing in on the Superhero Genre you get a movie like this. Ben Stiller is funny as always, portraying "Mr. Furious" a man that is supposed to acquire super powers the more angry he becomes, William H. Macy plays "The Shovler" a man that is exceptional when fighting with shovels. Hank Azaria had me laughing at the point of tears a couple times as his character "The Blue Razha". Greg Kinnear is Captain Amazing, a superhero that is so good that he has product endorsements as sponsors. Ganeane Garofalo as "Baby Bowler" is as sarcastic as ever, she and Stiller play off of eachother very well, and they have had a long friendship since their days together on The Ben Stiller Show.
