The specials features a hilariuous look at the lesser seen side of superheros. When they aren't saving the world, they do battle with financial squabbles, love affairs, backstabbing, public relations, and the pursuit of the ultimate honor--an action figure line!
Editor's Note
Director Craig Mazin's self-mocking debut film follows the members of the Specials, "America's seventh best superhero team," documenting the drama of their pathetic daily lives. Possessing more flaws than superhuman powers, the egomanical Strobe (Thomas Haden Church) and his misfit group--including the Weevil (Rob Lowe), Amok (Jamie Kennedy), Ms. Indestructible (Paget Brewster), Deadly Girl (Judy Greer), Minute Man (James Gunn), and new recruit Nightbird (Jordan Ladd)--must contend with their sub-par status as they fight amongst themselves. However, hope for some sort of dignity arrives when a toy manufacturer agrees to produce action figures of the team. Will the toy company save the Specials? Will the figures even look like the heroes? Tune into THE SPECIALS to find out....
