Mystery Men (1999)

Roy (Ben Stiller) has a dead-end job at a Junkyard that constanly tests his ability to control his violent temper. Jeffrey (Hank Azaria) lives at home with his mother, where he spends his time locked in his room, burning incense and throwing forks and spoons at pretend attackers.

He desperately longs for support from his family, but instead is teased by his children and scolded by his wife. By day, they are blue-collar workers. By night, Roy, Jeffrey and Eddie become Mr. Furious, The Blue Raja and The Shoveler, combing the streets in search of any villains to be found. They are soon joined by The Spleen (Paul Reubens), the victim of an old Gypsy woman's curse, who is now the purveyor of noxious fumes; Invisible Boy (Kel Mitchell), who after years of being overlooked has developed the power to turn invisible-only when no one else is looking; The Bowler (Janeane Garofalo), daughter of the late Carmine the Bowler, whose skill with a bowling ball leaves criminals shaking in her path; and The Sphinx (Wes Studi), a mysterious crime-fighter from down south, who has the power to slice guns in half with his mind.
