Yet again, Tom Waits rules.

Open Culture shares this deleted scene from Mystery Men.



      1. “See now, this is why mad scientists are generally less desirable than your common or garden variety scientist.”

  1. Still one of the greatest superhero movies ever made, just from the sheer amount of fun it had with everything.

    Mystery Men is on my short list of movies I watch when I’m feeling like crap, because I know it’ll make me feel better.

      1. Maybe Mr. Furious is too close to his real personality. He doesn’t exactly radiate light and joy when he’s out of character. He’s not quite Victoria Beckham, but he’s getting there.

  2. This was the only movie I ever bought from iTunes. I don’t care for Ben Stiller movies but this one shines despite him. Dammit, now I gotta go watch it again.    “You must lash out with every limb, like the octopus who plays the drums.”

  3. At a theater a couple guys were trying to remember who William Macy is, so I said “The Shoveler” and they were like “Oh yeah!”  And I thought “That’s probably not what he wants to be known for.” 

    1.  I hope he appreciates it, he was hilarious. Obviously he’s not the main character, but he really played that part well. Of course, he Is William H Macy, so that’s pretty much a given.
