ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Even with its super cast, the slow-moving 'Mystery Men' falters in its attempt to spoof comic book heroes.

It is good that the film has charm, for after a certain point it doesn't necessarily have anything else.

Witty comic-book story is edgy, with lots of potty humor.

Hugely entertaining -- especially for those with a thing for superheroes.

The characters have been designed to make fun of themselves, disguising the craft of writer Neil Cuthbert and director Kinka Usher in getting us to laugh at them.

Fails to come up with worthy gags and one-liners for the able cast.

An instant cult comedy that doesn't walk or talk like anything else out there.

How many laughs can you get out of a handful of one-joke characters? Well, if your ensemble contains the talents of Janeane Garofalo, William H. Macy, Hank Azaria and Ben Stiller, the answer is: a lot.

Usher's amiable spoof of superhero movies takes a brave stab at rewriting the mythology from the inside out, with lots of witty, mildly subversive stuff.

So much time is spent in getting to know everyone, the jokes are few and far between when they should be fast and furious.

If as a kid you ever put on a costume and imagined you were a superhero, you should have a perfectly good time with this movie.

Mystery Men is like its hapless heroes. It's a wannabe that has the best intentions -- including a pronounced anti-gun stance -- but none of the knack it takes to save the day, or itself.

The movie is so slow and so obsessed with its own jokes that it is ultimately disappointing.
