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>

Derrick Comedy strikes on the big screen!
5 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
