Superhelden übrig. Sie verfügen über die skurrilsten Fähigkeiten, sind aber alle etwas
unterbelichtet.Länge: 118 MinutenBen Stiller (Something About Mary, Permanent Midnight), Hank Azaria (Godzilla, The Birdcage), William H.

A Lawrence Gordon/Lloyd Levin/Dark Horse production, Mystery Men is being directed by commercial-veteran director Kinka Usher, who makes his feature film directorial debut.
Based on the Dark Horse comic, Mystery Men casts Stiller, Azaria, Macy, Reubens, Studi, Garofalo and Mitchell as seven lame superhero wannabes, who are called upon to use their dubious "powers" to save a bustling metropolis when Champion City's beloved real superhero-protector, Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear), is kidnapped. The wannabe heroes square off against the vile villain, Casanova Frankenstein (Academy AwardÒ winner Geoffrey Rush), and his beautiful sidekick, Dr. Anabel Leek (Lena Olin), as they try to stop Casanova's dastardly plot to take over the city.
