When Captain Amazing, Champion City's legendary superhero, falls into the hands of the evil madman Casanova Frankenstein and his disco-dancing henchmen, there's suddenly a chance for the aspiring superheroes to show what they can do. They're the Mystery Men, a ragtag team of superhero wannabes featuring: Mr Furious, whose power comes from his boundless rage; The Shoveler, a father who shovels "better than anyone"; The Blue Raja, a fork-flinging mama's boy; The Bowler, who fights crime with the help of her father's skull; The Spleen, whose power is pure flatulence; Invisible Boy, who's only invisible when no one's watching and The Sphinx, a cliché-spewing philosopher.
Possibly the worst movie in history

On paper it must have seemed like a sure fire winner. Take a group of bumbling group of misfit wannabe superheroes and have them save the city from the evil Casanova Frankenstein. The problem with 'Mystery Men' is that it just isn't funny, sure you'll get the jokes, understand the punch lines, but you won't even crack a smile. It tries to parody the superhero genre of films, (which for the most part don't take themselves seriously anyway), and ends up being the butt of its own joke. The trouble is the creators of this film concentrated too hard on hiring an amazing cast, and then did nothing else. Mystery Men really is nothing more than a two hour endurance test, see how long you can get into this film without wanting to hit the eject button! Quite possibly the worst film I have even seen.
