America's 7th Best Superhero Team, the Specials, are a group of geeks and oddballs. We get to see one day in their lives as fan and new member Nightbird joins the group, just in time for the group to get a new line of action figures. But the members' extreme personalities and personal issues threaten to rip the group apart.Written by
I've been a humongous fan of the Specials since I was knee-high to... something for sure. All my friends would make fun of me because the Specials were not a "cool" group like the Amazing Trio or the Crusaders. But, you know, screw that. I also liked Winger better than Bon Jovi. I still do. I don't care what the critics say.

During the end credits we see an "In Memory: 1970-1993" reference and picture of Mr. Stretch, an original member of the Specials that we are told died of mouth cancer in one of interview segments. See more »
A lot of people are saying how this movie was halarious, but I almost fell asleep in the middle of the movie. It's not the total lack of action which bothers me - it's the fact that it wasn't even funny. Many people compare this to "Mystery Men" but say that the script was better... I think it was worse - I actually liked mystery men - I though it was more polished than this one... The Specials was more like a festering open wound. Of course, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong...
