Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Enjoyably crude and occasionally sharply observed dork comedy by Derrick Comedy, a troupe of young unknowns who have gained a YouTube following.
| Original Score: 82/100
Derrick Comedy would rather be gross and infantile, staging a routine of crass and witless sequences that reduce the film to tiresome cult comedy mechanics, clumsily scripted by the three stars.
| Original Score: D+
A pleasant, charming knockabout with a playfully imaginative sense of wit and a pleasingly assured visual style.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Just because you're a hit on YouTube doesn't mean you should be making movies.
Spectacularly funny and refreshingly free of irony ... Way funnier than The Hangover, more clever than Sherlock Holmes.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Smutty, silly, groan-worthy in many places, inexplicably hilarious in others, Mystery Team is a guilty pleasure -- a deeply dumb movie made by pretty smart people.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
This ensemble-written movie is a weak effort, despite its appealing premise.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
A promising premise ... stricken lame by a complete lack of pacing. But then, every once in a while, a discussion about proper hobo bean-slicing etiquette, or a stripper's hilariously blasÚ scar story comes through and just kills.
The intersection of child-detective literature and a harsh grown-up world is an irresistible concept
| Original Score: 4/5
An outrageous, offbeat comedy that's often preposterous and silly, but nonetheless quite funny and delightfully bizarre.
| Original Score: 6.25/10
If this is the future of comedy in Hollywood, then there's little to fear -- as long as everyone remembers that brevity is the soul of wit.
Not surprisingly, especially for a movie heavy on college humor, the results are hit-and-miss. Some bits fall thuddingly flat, and the characters are rarely more than stick figures.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Does the thought of watching grown men act like socially awkward boy wonders, while everyone tries not to look confused at their golly-gee shenanigans, crack you up?
| Original Score: 2/5
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
Genuinely funny but amateurishly constructed.
| Original Score: B-
| Original Score: 0.5/4
