This spoof on the superhero genre takes on such films as "Spider-Man," "Batman Begins" and "Fantastic Four." Screenwriter Craig ("SCARY MOVIE 4") Mazin directs from his own script. After being bitten by a genetically altered dragonfly, high school loser Rick Riker develops superhuman abilities like incredible strength and armored skin. Rick decides to use his new powers for good and becomes a costumed crime fighter known as "The Dragonfly." However, standing in the way of his destiny is the villainous Lou Landers. After an experiment gone wrong, Lou develops the power to steal a person's life force and in a dastardly quest for immortality becomes the supervillain, "The Hourglass."

Someone ought to explain to filmmaker Craig Mazin that in Hollywood, you have to respond quickly to audiences' changing tastes. It's vital to strike while the iron is hot, especially with vast sums of money riding on the opening weekend box office. So writing and directing a spoof of Spider-Man, complete with a smutty recreation of the upside down kiss in the rain, some six years after the web-slinging superhero first swung onto the big screen is completely pointless.
