Not having been a comic book guy, my only knowledge of the never-released Fantastic For film came from the jokes about it in Arrested Development. Now I have a better appreciation for the jokes, and some sympathy for those involved in the film... and while this doc is informative enough, riveting it is not.
Interesting and a bit funny. 8.5/10 Cobain's
