Clark (Ben Crutcher) has really never amounted to much ... until he
finds out he can shoot spaghetti from his wrists. And that might sound
like a pretty useless talent unless you want to feed the poor, but Clark
soon finds out he can shoot noodles with such a force he can actually
knock out people - though at the same time he finds out he's a terrible
marksman. Anyways, he soon finds out he can use his powers for good - but
he can also charge those he has saved from whatever - so basically, he
becomes a superhero for hire, charging for his good deeds, even if
sometimes his charge grossly outweighs the crime, plus law inforcement
doesn't appreciate his services very much.
Clark's flatmate Dale
(Winston Carter) is a cop who is tied to a desk at the precinct because he
frequently fails at that one all-important exam to be allowed to do
fieldwork - and he doesn't take lightly to Clark's hero-for-hire attitude
since he's really into making the city a safer place no matter what and
without any benefit in return - but Clark's pretty much deaf to his
arguments ... so Dale decides to become a supervillain go get Clark out of
his money-making routine ...
Even the movie title Spaghettiman
suggests exactly what you might get here: A rather silly superhero movie
with great party flick potential - and this film truly delivers, it's
absurd in humour, properly fast-paced, features some fun fight scenes ...
and heck, the guy shoots spaghetti from his wrists, seriously how much
better does it get?
Awesome party movie, really!
