    The strongest comedic cast in history has united to become the strangest superhero team ever in Mystery Men. They're a ragtag team of superhero wannabes that includes Mr. Furious (Ben Stiller), The Shoveler (William H. Macy), The Blue Raja (Hank Azaria), The Bowler (Janeane Garofalo), The Spleen (Paul Reubens), Invisible Boy (Kel Mitchell) and The Sphinx (Wes Studi). When Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear) falls into the hands of evil madman Casanova Frankenstein (Geoffrey Rush) and his disco-dancing henchmen, there's suddenly a chance for the aspiring superheroes to show what they can do in this hilariously funny and thoroughly original misadventure.

    0/10 ..that bad?. I have it on DVD which I got in a charity shop for 50p, and thought it very funny with the weird mystery powers, especially 'invisible boy' LOL. OK there are bits that are crude rude, with gruesome deaths and a bit slow in places, but still worth a few points, say 3/10. For a science fantasy spoof on super heroes that gives some laughs, it is still worth the 50p. Second thoughts: Better spending the money on mel brooks 'spaceballs' for wacky laughs.
