Perfect and laugh-out-loud funny with great performances
You have to see this movie.
“Mystery Team” is a parody of a phenomenon that was never itself a film: The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, and especially Encyclopedia Brown.
They manage to walk the line — like the first Austin Powers film — so that it’s neither too wacky so you can’t believe it and don’t care about the characters, but not too boring that it’s not full of subtle interplay.
The main gag is the innocence of the boys, who are thrust into adult situations continually. It’s all about the acting in this film, and kudos especially to “Donald Glover”. Dressing like an outrageous hobo, for example, could come across as really stupid in a film with Jim Carrey or Rob Schneider, who play up their roles too much. Donald manages to do it consistently.
On top of that, there are a several delightful plot twists that you won’t see coming. The film tries to balance the boys basically being incompetent with allowing them to succeed in a way that isn’t too corny.
It’s laugh-out-loud funny throughout, a genuine must-see if you like intelligent edgy comedies. Note, it’s not really meant to be a kids film. There’s a lot of raunchy humor.
I’ll give Mystery Team a well-earned 9 out of 10. It just missed a 10 because the ending was good but not quite a classic.
Derrick Comedy strikes on the big screen!
This movie had what many movies today do not.
It was funny.
It was well worth my money.
It had heart.
A genuinely funny movie that had me and the rest of the theater rolling at every joke, Mystery Team is the first of what I’m sure will be many feature length films completed by Derrick Comedy. The trio of actors easily compliment each other’s comical timing to the point of perfection, not to mention the very visual style it was shot. I love the camera angles and moves, and over all it keeps the energy flowing throughout the story. This movie was not made on a big budget, nor was it done in the glamor of Hollywood. This movie is a portrait of legitimate hard work and dedication that culminated into a hilarious movie. I recommend seeing Mystery Team as soon as it becomes available to you.
