Mystery Men

They’re the other guys.

Possessing a certain set of slightly-impressive skills, the sort-of superheroes assembled by Ben Stiller are called upon to save the day after their universe’s top dog (Greg Kinnear’s Captain Amazing) gets fried during a botched rescue.

That sets up a battle royal where the bad guys are disco fiends and the heroes feature at least one guy whose power consists of “Hey, pull my finger.”

A bomb at the box office, this has endured and still delights.

In a world where most comic book movies look the same, this is a refreshing change of pace.
