Review Wanted: The Specials

I was wondering if anyone has seen this movie or has the DVD. It kinda looks like Mystery Men to me (yes, I actually liked that movie). Any reviews would be appreciated before I actually purchase. Thanks in advance.

I have seen the movie but do not own the DVD. The movie was a lot better then Mystery Men. There are a lot of big laughs in this one. The movie felt a little too long though. It was not good enough to pick up on DVD.

This movie is low budget and looks it. I found the humor to be a little smarter than Mystery Men, but for me there were few laugh out loud moments. There is no action to speak of and little in the way of effects. It's more a mockumentary in the vein of Spinal Tap.

Despite being such a low budget film, the extras are solid and I would classify it has a true SE.

I would put this in the one-viewing rental category.
