In order to generate more endorsement revenue, Champion City's resident superhero Captain Amazing arranges for the release of supervillain Casanova Frankenstein, only to be captured by him. The city's fate rests in the hands of seven loser superhero wannabes: the spoon-flinging Blue Rajah, the shovel-wielding Shoveler, the possessed bowling ball-hurling Bowler, the flatulent Spleen, the only-when-nobody's-looking Invisible Boy, the mysterious Sphinx, and the perpetually-angry Mr. Furious.

Invisible Boy is the only member of the team who has no comic book counterpart. In fact, he was made up as a joke by a drunken Bob Burden. The filmmakers loved the idea, and added him to the script. See more »
During the recruiting scene, the order in which the superheroes are standing in line changes from shot to shot. For example, after The Waffler auditions and walks away, he is seen still waiting in line behind Pencil Head & Ballerina Man. When the two Wonder Women begin fighting, he is no longer present.

I thought this movie was hilarious when I first saw it and even bought it. I'm surprised that there is so much controversy over this film, because everyone did great performances, especially Ben Stiller as Mr. Furious. Quotes like "I need a compass to show me which way the wind shines." are just a small fraction of the hilarity in this film.
Grade: A+(One of my favorite comedies of all time)
