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.
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.
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.
This bunch achieves peaks of sublime nuttiness.
Surprisingly, this spoof's heart is genuinely warm.
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.
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.
A wacky, silly occasionally hilarious tale of a group of unlikely superheroes who struggle to stay together after their leader, Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear) is taken, and a new villain (Geoffrey Rush) emerges as a legitimate threat to overrun their city with evil. The set designs perfectly match the acting, overdone and colorful, and even when the film veers all over the place, it still remains largely entertaining. However, the running time is much too long, there is no reason for a movie like this to surpass two hours. With that said, it is funny in spurts, and Ben Stiller's energetic performance is often enough to keep the movie watchable. Far from perfect, far from terrible, just an average little weird film.
Not the worst superhero movie ive ever watched however i wouldnt say its that great either! Its amusing in places but not enough for it to be honestly called a comedy! I don't like Ben Stiller as an actor and so he was the one i disliked most in this movie which isnt a surprise! Good cast in my opinion but not a great movie, watchable on a wet sunday afternoon whilst doing the ironing and catching glimpses of the actual movie!
A guild pleasure.
