Ben picked Mystery Men as our latest flashback, this time to 1999, and, well, we should have watched The Matrix? Mystery Men came out pre-Superhero boom, and this didn’t help get it going. We dive into behind the scenes drama, shitty direction, horrible cinematography, wasted opportunities, and discuss the merits of dumb humor. Ben stands by his pick, Lauren and Zac stand strong, and Jon waffles. It’s quite the listen!
