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.
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.
This movie is such a guilty pleasure for me, I love everything about it. Over the years I've shown it to numerous people and had a great time laughing at the jokes to the point now when I watch it with people they get mad at me for quoting it too much.
I love DC Pierson, Dominick Dierkes & Donald Glover all in their own regards, but as Derrick Comedy I think they are great. This film features some great cameos from some of todays bigger comedy stars before they were big.
It's a great film to check out if you're looking to have a good time and a great film to watch with friends.
Silly and a bit insane. Along the exact same lines as a "Lonely Island" video/movie. The same type of humor throughout.
The send-up here is of old Encyclopedia Brown investigators, or Hardy Boys or even the Scooby-Doo gang. The comedy is three guys in a state of arrested development completely oblivious to the "grown-up" world around them. Fun stuff.
The tone is a bit sporadic as is the humor. But more of it hits the mark than doesn't. There are numerous laugh-out-loud moments, but there are also several jokes that fall fully flat. Soooo... you get a mixed bag of humor.
However, for me, there is enough funny stuff going on to make it worth the watch.
this movie hits me square in my sweet spot. one of many sweet spots to be clear.
This movie was dumb.
Donald Glover was the only thing that makes it watchable.
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
