      60% Tomatometer 105 Reviews 57% Audience Score 100,000+ Ratings Champion City already has a superhero, the appropriately named Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear), but that doesn't deter the city's seven quirky amateur crime-fighters, who use the Captain's capture at the hands of villain Casanova Frankenstein (Geoffrey Rush) as motivation to prove themselves. The only problem is that their strange powers -- silverware hurling, bowling, shovel skills, incompetent invisibility and deadly flatulence -- aren't doing them any favors.

      Nell Minow Common Sense Media Witty comic-book story is edgy, with lots of potty humor. Rated: 3/5 Dec 26, 2010 Full Review Lisa Alspector Chicago Reader 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. Jul 15, 2010 Full Review Derek Adams Time Out Usher's amiable spoof of superhero movies takes a brave stab at rewriting the mythology from the inside out, with lots of witty, mildly subversive stuff. Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies Mystery Men is admirable for its effort but falls short of the standards that we've come to expect in the spoof genre. Rated: 3/5 Feb 20, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A colorful but flavorless dud. Rated: 2/4 Nov 25, 2022 Full Review John Lui The Straits Times (Singapore) A story that sparkles with emotional warmth, strong jokes and great performances from Hank Azaria, Janeane Garofalo, Lena Olin, Eddie Izzard, Greg Kinnear, William Macy, Geoffrey Rush and Ben Stiller. Rated: 4/5 Apr 2, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Robert C There are some laugh-out-loud moments in this film...but too much!! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/16/24 Full Review Jonathan S This movie was way ahead of its time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/02/23 Full Review Dave B It has a great cast, an ok story, but final cut is tough to watch. The cinematography is a mash of the late 90s Batman movies and Dodgeball. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 09/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
