Occasionally fun, but mostly unfantastic, superhero movie based on the Marvel comic-book series about four scientists endowed by cosmic rays with superpowers -- the elastic Mr. Fantastic (Ioan Gruffudd), Invisible Woman (Jessica Alba), self-combustible Human Torch (Chris Evans) and superstrong rocklike "Thing" (Michael Chiklis) -- who come together to stop the villainous Dr. Doom (Julian McMahon). Despite ham-fisted dialogue, bad acting, chintzy sets and, at times, cheesy special effects, director Tim Story's film has a goofy campiness but doesn't take itself too seriously, and manages to impart a positive message about teamwork and accepting those who are different. Intense comic-book action violence, some sexual innuendo and brief mildly crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
