Forgotten Cinema - Mystery Men

The Mike's (especially Field) are feeling super about this week's Audience Choice episode as they discuss the 1999 comedy film, Mystery Men starring Ben Stiller, William H. Macy, Janeane Garofalo, and Hank Azaria.

This episode of Forgotten Cinema Season 5: Audience Choice! is brought to us by Paul from The Countdown: Movies and TV Podcast.

Listen in as Mike Field bemoans watching this film, and Butler loving every minute of Field's suffering. They'll discuss the disjointedness of the film and the problems on set between the cast members, the director's decision to never work on film again, and the rewrites on set. Butler will concede that though it's not necessarily a great film as a whole, there are many stand out cast members that get some very funny moments. The Mikes will also break down the reasons that the film never really got a chance to succeed in what it commonly referred to as the last great year of movies, 1999.

Thanks again to Paul from The Countdown Movie and TV podcast check him out on social media and wherever you get your podcasts!

So grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits at the front and rear of the auditorium, and settle down for Forgotten Cinema
