Storyline

Three clueless high school nerds, best friends for years, call themselves the "Mystery Team" and solve neighborhood crimes - such as who poked a finger in a pie cooling on a window ledge - cute at seven but foolish at 18. Then, one morning, a young girl pays them a dime to find out who murdered her parents the night before and took her grandmother's ring. Using inept methods, the team lucks onto the trail of the bad guys. Can they bumble to success and a renewed reputation? And what about coming of age? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

When Jason, Duncan and Charlie are in the strip club investigating the guy who got the ring, in the background you can hear a song playing. It is "Fire" off of Childish Gambino's (Donald Glover's artist name) mix tape Sick Boi. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where the Mystery Team debate whether to take the murder case, Briana is missing from the background when the camera spins 360 degrees. In the next shot, she's back again. Similarly, when Kelly and Briana walk away later in the scene, the next shot shows the street they should be walking down, but they're already gone. See more »

So super phenomenal!!!!
3 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved it. Loved it all over. I was on the edge of my seat, but I kept falling over with laughter. It was written in a way that was perfectly suited to the comedic voices of Bobby Moynihan, Matt Walsh, Jon Daly, Aubrey Plaza, etc but still maintained a really strong voice in and of itself.

Gun to my head, if I had to criticize it, I would say I could have used more Ben Schwartz. But I feel that way about EVERYTHING........

So so so good. I cannot say enough good things about this movie!!!! I feel as though any negative reviewers on here probably wanted to see a simple, straight-forward comedy and that it is not. It is an ethically challenging movie with really artistic choices and deep belly uncontrollable laughs.

Enjoy.
