Special 2006 81 R 3.5 out of 5 ducks
Les is a lonely parking ticket writer (read, meter maid, minus the maid) who, largely out of boredom, joins a drug study for an experimental anti-depressant. Either because of the drug, his love of comic books and their stores, or the loneliness, Les is convinced he's developing special powers (reading minds, jumping through walls, etc.). The doctor tells him to quit the drug, but Les' telepathic reading of the doctor's mind tells him to continue the drug to strengthen the powers to become permanent. He thinks he thwarts a store robbery, and shows his comic book store pals Joey and Everett how he jumps through walls; we see it, but they just see Les him running into a wall and getting a bloody nose. News reports show Les, in his goofy hero costume, running around and jumping people. The brothers who own the drug lab try to discourage Les running around (he put their logo and name on his costume), and in Les' mind, they're after him, much like everyone else. He retreats to the store where stuttering clerk Maggie works (she was his first "save"), rambling and all banged up (he got into a real, or imagined, fight with the two brothers); she locks him in the restroom for a bit at his request (for his safety). Released and outside, the two brothers hit him with their car a few times, but Les defiantly tells them they can't stop him; he shuffles down the street, bleeding and banged up, smiling. (It's for you to decide how much was real and what was made-up in his mind.) Moving film reel
