Shut Up. Kick-Ass.
What's wrong with wearing pajamas?
This satire of the superhero genre has had mixed reviews and reactions. Not for the faint-hearted, the story concerns an ordinary teen with delusions of becoming a superhero via his costume. The costume fails to produce any magic, but luckily (?) he gets hooked up with an eleven year old girl and her dad, who are both well-trained in killing arts. Together they find themselves up against the local mob, and the body count soon goes through the roof.
