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.
July 15, 2010
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.
August 25, 2008
An instant cult comedy that doesn't walk or talk like anything else out there.

An exuberant, hugely enjoyable romp.

There should be no mystery as to why this movie is so funny.
January 1, 2001
It isn't quite a good movie, but I do admire the effort, and the spirit, that went into it.

Mystery Men winds up paying clever but vaguely sincere tribute to the idea of superheroes -- that marginal talents can come together for the greater good. Their actual talents being far greater, the filmmakers make it look easy.

Hip and consistently funny!
