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
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 »
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 »

Where did you find this?
It's a... long story.
No it's not. A stripper peed it into a toilet.

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.
