One might expect me to respond to the BBC list currently being discussed by releasing my best of 2000 and…
No case too hard. No case too tough.
A group of former Encyclopedia Brown-style child-detectives struggle to solve an adult mystery.
This is like Community: The Movie, minus some characters but this reminds me a lot of Community's humor and it's just as hilarious. The only thing that would make this better is if Abed was somewhere in this. Hell, I'd pay to see that....
Troy and Abed in the MOOVIE!
The cult of this film needs to be bigger.
I can't tell if the acting was purposely bad or not, but goddamn this movie is fucking hysterical.
Frank! Sometimes I wish you didn't beat that cancer. I really do.
I found this on Hulu by complete fluke. I don't even remember what I was searching for as I added this to my queue months ago just because Donal Glover is in it. Going by the poster I thought this would probably be a bad movie, but maybe fun regardless. I had no damn idea what I was in for.
I had never heard of the comedy group Derrick Comedy before except for being familiar with Glover, but now I'm really going to have to check out some of their shorts. It plays like an R rated Community, no surprise that Dan Eckman would later direct an episode (the "Subway" episode).
It's basically three adult children that think they're the Scooby Gang solving a murder in a town filled with mostly dirty people and a very questionable convenience store clerk.
AND THESE ARE MY SONS, BENNY AND.... THE JETS.
Always one of my favorites to watch with friends.
A highly slept on comedy that I wish was seen by more people. Everyone that I've shown this to has loved it.
A fun and quirky comedy lead by Donald Glover. The Mystery Team is a group of three high school guys who are stuck in a young schoolboy team that solves small and unimportant local problems. They are then tasked to solve the murder of two people which they are highly unqualified for.
There are plenty of laughs to be had throughout but it definitely could have been more consistent. Though, it's a lot of fun and a nice, easy watch on a rainy day.

This is one of those weird films that I really like, while disliking it at the same time. It doesn't do anything to make me mad at it or ruin itself, it's just there, with funny moments and ideas I like, and most of the execution of it as well. But it the end it still isn't that good no matter how much I like it.
I guess my overall problem with it is that joke plays itself out for me almost instantly. You get that moment where you chuckle and say, "haha they are like scooby doo kids that never grew up, while everyone around them is foul mouthed and angry, just like in real life!" Then it goes…
Mystery Team struggles to find its footing early on, but eventually settles into something that is most certainly not for everyone. The jokes are way too wide-eyed and naive for my taste, but even I'll admit I laughed so goddamn hard at the last gag, that it earned a pass from me overall.
That being said, Aubrey Plaza was woefully misused as the romantic interest, knowing now how excellent she is as a comic herself. They'll use her properly later down the road, but she was not utilized well here. There were enough straight foils in the film already without her.
This movie is funny, and it's sad that people might never watch it because they haven't heard of it.
Number 46... You would think I would have internet by now.... This film is actually pretty fun. I'm a fan of Donald glover because of community and this film has Troy's childish nature. It feels like a kids film but it 100% isn't one
There's a mystery afoot and only one team of crack private detectives can solve it. Comprised of Jason: the master of disguise, Duncan: the boy genius and Charlie: the strongest boy in the world, the Mystery Team are ready to solve any crime big or small. All while contending with the reality of no longer being ten.
During childhood, Jason, Duncan and Charlie spent their summer days solving crimes around the neighborhood mostly ranging from the nabbing of baseball cards to stealing a taste of windowsill pie. Now on the verge of graduating high school, the plucky trio's antics have become stale and out of place with a world that's leaving them behind. Things change however when they are hired…
"When I was fifteen years old, when I got this job, I said to myself, 'I am going to work here until the day that I kill myself.'"
Despite losing its steam in the second half and Aubrey Plaza being as meh as ever, this is by far the weirdest and most quotably hilarious comedy I've seen in awhile.
I've been on a bit of a Found Footage tear recently. There are a few similar lists on here, but…
