Enjoyably crude and occasionally sharply observed dork comedy by Derrick Comedy, a troupe of young unknowns who have gained a YouTube following.

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.

A pleasant, charming knockabout with a playfully imaginative sense of wit and a pleasingly assured visual style.

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.

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.

This ensemble-written movie is a weak effort, despite its appealing premise.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
January 20, 2010
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 blasť scar story comes through and just kills.

The intersection of child-detective literature and a harsh grown-up world is an irresistible concept

An outrageous, offbeat comedy that's often preposterous and silly, but nonetheless quite funny and delightfully bizarre.
Full Review | 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.

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?

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.

Genuinely funny but amateurishly constructed.
