Hey now, Jerome and Brian are all-stars this weekend as they discuss the 1999 borderline cult classic Mystery Men. It's an interesting archive of the late 90s, especially when you look at the cast and the fact this helped turn Smash Mouth into huge stars for a hot minute. Will this oddball film be good enough to get into the pantheon? Find out.
