Maybe it's no mystery how they did it, considering the aggregate comic talent, but this bunch achieves peaks of sublime nuttiness.

Austin Chronicle
Gleefully, goofily over-the-top.

They're a ragtag assembly for sure, and the results aren't pretty. But on a simple mission of entertainment, they get the job done.

ReelViews
At long last, someone has crafted a worthwhile superhero spoof.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
This spoof's heart is genuinely warm.

Entertainment Weekly
This hip send-up of the superhero lifestyle has a bunch of great comic bits from a group of great, eccentric talents, but not enough bourgeois discipline to see the story through.

This loving parody is steeped in comic book trivia and lore: The more you know, the more heartfelt your response to the film is likely to be.

At least the studio hired enough likable scene-stealing actors and comedians to carry the bloated carcass of this film over the course of two hours.

Chicago Sun-Times
It's a long, shapeless, undisciplined mess, and every once in awhile it generates a big laugh.

Christian Science Monitor
The movie will disappoint people expecting a genuine superhero epic or an over-the-top spoof. But those in the mood for an offbeat satire with a gifted cast will have a surprisingly good time.
