Mystery Men - 1999
Mystery Men - Released August 6, 1999. Directed by Kinka Usher
Bob Burden's counter-superheroes on the big screen receive a big budget treatment from director Kinka Usher. Their unusual adventures fighting crime lord Casanova Frankenstein (Geoffrey Rush) is treated with mock-superhero importance and stands somewhere between parody and heroism done with a unusual, and goofy, approach.
Mystery Men contains superhero team disaster histrionics as The Shoveler (William Macy) and Mr. Furious (Ben Stiller) assemble a dysfunctional group to replace Champion City's missing protector Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear) and prevent the city's destruction. The plot moves like a standard hero-team story, but these characters do not at all fit the usual template.
