The Specials is a 2000 American comedy film about a group of ordinary superheroes on their day off. According to the film, the Specials are the sixth or seventh most popular group of superheroes in the world. Unlike most superhero films, The Specials has almost no action and few special effects; instead it focuses on the average day-to-day lives of the heroes. The film was written by James Gunn, directed by Craig Mazin, and produced on a small $1 million budget, which is unusual for a superhero-themed film. The MPAA gave the film an R rating for strong language.
