Mystery Men ★★★★½


"You must lash out with every limb, like the octopus who plays the drums."

Absolutely preposterous, but incredible nonetheless. A two-hour Schumacher Batman riff that features caped crusaders such as 'The Shoveler' and 'Spleen'. Sublimely silly. I bet all of these actors keep evidence of Mystery Men locked away deep in their subconscious, but I cherish it. Filled to the brim with fart jokes and stupid slapstick and yet entirely more engaging than most superhero movies this decade. Shoutout to Tom Waits, master builder of non-lethal weapons.
