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.
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.
AND THESE ARE MY SONS, BENNY AND.... THE JETS.
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.
We all choose to watch certain movies for our own reasons; there being an ever-decreasing amount of time left in our lives against an ever-growing stockpile of movies being made, none of us can see everything, though I'm sure every serious movie fan has gone through phases of trying to pull that off (my main one: 2000-2008). So instead we gotta reject a lot of 'em, or put 'em on hold, line 'em up for later in our queues and personal lists, and go after the ones that appeal most immediately to some craving or another. There should be a statistical box in these Letterboxd review squares where people can write in the main reason why they chose to watch…
Dumb characters can be funny. Jane, in 'Firefly' and 'Serenity' occasionally says or does unintelligent things to comic effect, but I think the reason it works is that he's otherwise a fully-formed character. His stupidity doesn't prevent him from functioning and contributing. The characters in 'Mystery Team,' however, are so dumb that it's impossible to imagine them existing in anything like a real world. A disappointing effort from writer/actor Donald Glover.
Only managed to finish this because it was the only movie in my mom's minivan on the way to the waterpark.
This movie is hilarious.
It's about a team of crime fighting kids who grow up and still are child detectives...
I honestly don't know what to think about this movie. I found it pretty funny at times. Donald Glover has great comedic delivery, so without him as the lead I doubt this would have worked at all.
This was filmed in the area I grew up in, so that's pretty cool I guess. Random fact: I used to drive past that strip club all the time on the way to my after-school job.
At times hilarious, at others, not-so-funny, but overall an enjoyable low budget comedy.
Odio ese humor donde tienen que actuar como idiotas, porque el burlarte de alguien que aparenta retrasado es super gracioso...
Pretty average movie I guess, there were a few funny parts but most of the other jokes weren't good, also their acting wasn't good they were supposed to be 18 year olds acting like little kids but they over did it most of the time.
HILARIOUS! That's all that needs to be said. I wish Derrick Comedy would make another movie. This is pure gold! I've shown this movie to so many people and nobody has been disappointed yet! Just a fun funny movie.
The term 'independent movie' doesn't mean anything at this point really, and is certainly not a particular genre. Most of…
