Mystery Team (2009)

A trio of friends (Donald Glover, DC Pierson and Dominic Dierkes) who specialize in solving grade-school level crimes, are thrown into a real murder mystery – and hilarity ensues.

Being funny in a short video is easy. Say something outrageous or get injured and you’re a hit. Being funny over the course of a full feature film is something much more difficult. You now have to have interesting characters, sustain a story arc AND be funny. Though making the transition from short-form to long-form has crushed lesser talents, the men of Derrick Comedy were able to produce one of the five best comedies of the decade.

Though made by/for people who follow the “alternative comedy” scene, I guarantee this film will make ANYONE laugh because it has everything you want from a great comedy. It’s funny, it’s quotable and most importantly, you actually give a fuck about the characters. If this film somehow doesn't make you laugh then there is something really really wrong with you and you might want to seek professional help.

Look for it on Netflix Instant!
