Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man franchise takes the dull brunt of the patchy send-up Superhero Movie. In an interview on the extended edition, director Craig Mazin says he wanted to ”get things back to the Naked Gun days.” Alas, the film only rises to Gun heights with Leslie Nielsen’s sublimely daffy turn as superhero Bell’s idiotic uncle.
