The late 90's/early 2000's was an interesting time for comic book movies. Batman and Robin pretty much made people not give a crap about superhero movies. Then came Mystery Men which despite it being based off a comic book, the marketing made it seem like an original idea that was parodying the genre. On one hand the movie does make fun of superhero tropes and on the other hand its silly at the root of it. It has its moments where you'll get laughs but its definitely a weird movie to say the least.
