Are you ready for a new kind of superhero -- a thirty-something virgin in long underwear?

Blankman plays it light and silly but not so broadly that the movie collapses into chaos.
Wayans's attempt to take a bite out of crime doesn't really work. In fact, he's shooting a blank.
Sort of inspired, but really lame, superhero premise.
This isn't the worst superhero parody ever created, it's just one of them.
Blankman's use of the cheesy effects from the Batman TV show, including Polito trying to imitate The Penguin, was initially a good idea but the execution is simply horrible and this is what winds up ruining the film.
Damon Wayans loses credibility in 90 minute movie shocker!
Aims for the most simplistic sort of slapstick ... and fails even at that.
