It's Pandora...Don't correct me, it sickens me!

We'll uncover the comedic gold of this cult classic as we meet the ragtag team: Ben Stiller as the rage-prone Mr. Furious, William H. Macy as the shovel-wielding Shoveler, and Hank Azaria as the fork-flinging Blue Raja. Plus, who could forget the spleen-splattering Spleen, the bowling-ball-toting Bowler, and the invisible (but only when no one's looking) Invisible Boy?

Join us as we laugh our way through their bumbling attempts to save the day, their hilariously bad training montages, and their epic showdown with the flamboyant villain, Casanova Frankenstein, played by none other than Geoffrey Rush. We'll dish on the behind-the-scenes shenanigans, from the film’s outrageous costume designs to the surprising number of A-list cameos and the epic debate over whether the Blue Raja’s accent is genius or just plain bonkers.

Prepare for plenty of chuckles as we dissect the film’s over-the-top humor, its quirky characters, and its surprisingly heartfelt moments. We'll also talk about how Mystery Men poked fun at the superhero genre long before it was cool and why it remains a beloved (if slightly obscure) gem.
