Dan Eckman‘s Mystery Team is a comic gem that I love showing to people who haven’t seen it. The best way I’ve ever heard it described are “PG characters in an R-rated world”. Co-written by and starring Donald Glover, D.C. Pierson, and Dominic Dierkes, the story centers on three teenagers who haven’t mentally matured past the age when they were adorable kid sleuths. However, they decide to investigate a murder so people will take them “seriously” again. The film (which also stars Aubrey Plaza) never got the theatrical distribution it deserved, but it’s found its way on to just about every available streaming platform around. If you can’t find Mystery Team on some kind of VOD service, you’re just not trying. But if you’ve been cheaping out and missing the comic greatness, you no longer have an excuse not to see the flick. Mystery Team is now streaming for free on Hulu.
