    Synopsis


    Mystery Team
    Three would-be Encyclopedia Browns step into the world of grown-up crime in this independent comedy. When they were seven years old, "the Mystery Team" were three kids living in the same neighborhood in Oakdale who played at being precocious preteen detectives. With Jason (Donald Glover) as "the Master of Disguise," Duncan (D.C. Pierson) as "the Boy Genius," and Charlie (Dominic Dierkes) as "the Strongest Kid in Town," they would spend their afternoons getting to the bottom of such crimes as missing tricycles and stolen pies, charging ten cents (or some fruit roll-ups) for their services. However, while their peers have moved on to more mature pastimes now that they're 18 years old, Jason, Duncan, and Charlie are hopeless nerds stuck in preadolescence as they prepare to graduate from high school. Convinced that all they need to do is prove their crime-busting talents to regain the respect of their peers, the Mystery Team step into a new class of detective work when a little girl asks them to find out who killed her parents. The guys are up for the challenge, but it isn't long before dealing with real (and truly dangerous) criminals gets them in hot water. Created by members of the comedy troupe DERRICK, Mystery Team received its world premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      The Newest Cult Comedy Classic

      Posted

      I've watched this movie twice so far. Once as normal to watch it then right after with the DVD Commentary. It is already one of my top 5 favorite comedies of all time and one of the top 5 funniest I've ever seen. An I keep saying when telling other about the movie with more viewings could be my number 1 someday in both favorite and funniest. You will laugh so much watching this, it's so great how it starts out making you think it's a totally different type of comedy than it is, yet really in a way it does keep that element of the beginning through out to. You'll know when you watch what I'm talking about. Derrick Comedy did great with this but what else would you expect from a writer who was a writer on 30 Rock in Donald Glover, and the other 2 writers and stars along with Glover being members of the Upright Citizens Brigade. These guys are the next big comedy group and will be right up there with Broken Lizard. Extras rock, the commentary was nice. Fun to listen to and not a boring one. Get this movie you will not regret it.

      Being a fan of Derrick Comedy i couldn't wait to see this movie, i really didn't know what to expect of a full length film. After seeing this movie i have shown it to everyone i know and not one person disliked it. Definitly for a mature audience but i never could stop laughing. As a film major the cinematography was also amazing, the camera pans are almost as epic as the music selection. Definitly a new cult film, can't wait till their next movie.
