    A genuinely funny but amateurishly constructed laffer from Derrick Comedy, a troupe of YouTube-savvy NYU grads with promising writing careers ahead of them.
  2. The twentysomething talents behind Mystery Team are still in the comedy minors, but this nerdy, nutty, perfectly pitched first swing suggests there are major things to come.

    Mystery Team is a guilty pleasure - a deeply dumb movie made by pretty smart people.

    The results are hit-and-miss. Some bits fall thuddingly flat, and the characters are rarely more than stick figures.

    This slapdash parody will simply inspire shrugs.

    There is only one joke here, milked endlessly.

    Hilarious. Destined to be a cult classic and funnier than 95% of mainstream comedies coming out these days.

Critics will hate it for its low cinematography but this movie not only hits the bar for funny but incremently raises it. Donald Glover is impeccable, hilarious, and yet does not take his role too seriously which just adds to the film's bravado. The jokes are endless, and the chemistry is on-point. I could not stop laughing. A movie to watch at any time of the day whether sad or happy. A great choice for an easy laugh. Expand

WhileWith a great cast, this debut film from the classic comedy troupe, Derrick Comedy, gives everything a Derrick Comedy fan would want. While this was not meant to win an Oscar, negative reviewers either fail to see the success of this style of comedy, or have never seen (or enjoyed) their previous internet sketches. For what it is (and for what it tries to be, which is just a fun, clever comedy), "Mystery Team" is a wonderful movie with a brilliant cast. Expand

I was expecting them to be another dumb group of wannabe stars, but I was pleasantly surprised with there clever writing and amazing timing. My favorites include "Bro Rape" and "Jerry". If you enjoyed there videos, you will be laughing on the floor from some scenes in this cult comedy. the laughs never stop and these three (DC Pierson, Donald Glover, and Dominic Dierkes) have an immense amount of talent. Strongly recommend to anyone who enjoys breathing. Expand
