DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Comedy - Mystery Men is an action comedy likely to appeal most strongly to teenagers and young males fond of super-hero films. The characters in situations are a bit more eccentric than the typical action film, however, which may appeal more to older viewers. The unique visual style could be too much for those older viewers, leading to a film which doesn't have a natural target audience.

Critic's Review Heading
Above Average
Of all the reasons to be frustrated by a film, I'll take the one MYSTERY MEN provides: it's just too clever and original for its own damned good. The super-hero action film has become such a predictable package of action sequences, limp quips and bland characterizations that it was screaming for a satirical treament. To fill this need, along comes MYSTERY MEN, spinning out a dozen different ways to turn the genre on its ear...which turns out to be at least a half-dozen too many. A cast like Stiller, Garofalo, Macy and Azaria guarantees more oddball enjoyment than most films could deliver, but they could have been part of a cult classic.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Here in Champion City, superheroes are taken for granted, you'd be mocked only if you were a lame superhero. The 'Mystery Men' are just likable, normal guys who want to be superheroes and fight evil. . . Ordinary Champion City citizens."

Their big chance comes when Champion City's beloved real superhero/protector, Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear), disappears. The wannabe heroes square off against the vile Casanova Frankenstein (Geoffrey Rush) and his beautiful sidekick, Dr. Anabel Leek (Lena Olin), as they try to thwart his dastardly plot to take over the city. But the biggest obstacle the Mystery Men must overcome is themselves; their powers are not exactly imposing by normal superhero standards.
