Mystery Men : Friday, August 6, 1999

Mystery Men a parody on the super hero genre, is said to be funny only to those that laugh at anything. So, if you find yourself laughing at SNL skits the go nowhere, you'll probably enjoy this movie. That's right boys and girls two whole hours of SNL skit for only $9.00. Wow! What a deal! Some of you out there are probably going to say we just didn't get the whole spoof thing. Well, maybe not. You go and check it out and tell us what you think, but according to the Film-o-meter below you should go at matinee!

The People's Review of Mystery Man

 

Movie Knight
It's a mystery why this cast of very talented and funny people took this rather dull script. It could have been and should have been funnier than it was. It's no worse than the 3rd Batman movie, but what does that really say about Mystery Men. The best part is the return of Paul Ruben (PEE-WEE) as the master of flatulence, the Spleen. This is a video rental at best. But if you really want to get the best value for your buck go to a friends house who is stealing cable and watch it for free on PPV.
