Mystery Men is about a group of misfit up-and-coming wannabe heroes who, when a real superhero-whose a bit of a louse-goes missing shortly after the release of a master villain-have to try to band together and rise to the occasion despite their lack of formal training, mediocre abilities and struggle to believe in themselves! Can spoon-throwing, toxic farts, faulty invisibility, a possessed bowling ball-like sphere, a shovel, unbridled rage and being mysterious help?! These guys (and one woman) think so, and there's the show-silly powers and wacky bad-guys collide as the fate of the city they live in hangs in the balance. This should have been funnier, and could have been, but it remains OK and spoofs a great many superhero tropes! A great cast tries hard, but the writing and direction just needed some more attention.

Continuity mistake: During his interview, the waffle iron held in the Waffler's right hand switched positions. At first it was being held by one side of the iron, then he was holding it by the handle, then it went back to being held by one side of the iron. His other hand had an oven mitt on it so there wasn't any way that he could have just simply switched hands.

Trivia: Listen to what the Blue Raja says when Captain Amazing has finished beating up the Red Eyes, he says something like: "With the punching and the hurting", this is a reference to the Simpsons, Professor Frink (voiced by the person who plays the Blue Raja) talks just like that.

More trivia for Mystery Men

Question: Just interested, but when the Mystery Men are rescuing Captain Amazing, how did Amazing know the sequence for the release mechanism and where it was if he was unconscious when he was put there?

Chosen answer: In a previous scene with Casanova, Capt. Amazing and he have done this (capture & escape) a lot! So much so that Capt. Amazing would have been in that situation before enough times to already know the sequence code from previous times being captured (and escaping).
