hard to find but worth looking for
30 August 2004 | by (Superior, WI) – See all my reviews

This movie is not for every taste...but if you're a fan of Firesign Theatre and Mystery Science Theatre...this may be right up your alley. It has some of the most brilliant puns and plays-on-words ever assembled. It can be compared to Woody Allen's "What's Up Tiger Lily?" The difference is "J-Men" was crafted from a number of scenes from different '40's era serials and tied together with several contemporary scenes shot in period looking b/w. I've found 2 reactions to this film. People either love it..or they don't get it. There is so much broad humor in this one...you might miss some of the sly subtle lines..of which there are a ton. It's a hard one to find...but well worth the search (if you're one of those that love it). There's another film called "Hot Shorts" which Proctor & Bergman made utilizing most of the same clips but with different story lines that I believe predates "J-Men". It is also worth seeing...but "J-Men" is the funnier one for my money.
