I had lots of work during the weekend. I’m beat, but I will leave you with a VERY underrated comedy movie recommendation:
Mystery Men (1999)
Over 20 years ago, before the Marvel and DC cinematic universes, there was Mystery Men.
Look, I’m not gonna overhype it, nor write a whole criticism on it. Gonna stay 100% personal opinion on this post to avoid a long technical review (maybe in the future I’ll do it).
In the meantime, check it out. Laughs are fucking guaranteed. It’s top tier satire hitting every comic book and superhero cliche with an avengers like 90’s star studded comedic cast executing PERFECT onscreen comedic chemistry. No, for real. These people were at the top of their game, delivering super ridiculous lines throughout the movie.
Credits: Ben Stiller, Hank Azaria, William H. Macy, Greg Kinnear, Janeane Garofalo, Paul Reubens, Kel Mitchell, Wes Studi, Geoffrey Rush, Lena Olin, Eddie Izzard, Claire Forlani, and Tom Waits.
Fun fact: the movie introduced us to Smash Mouth’s “All Star.”
