I was one of the few people lucky enough to see MYSTERY TEAM in it's very limited theatrical run.  One of my favorite comedic films of 2009 saw its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival to much critical acclaim.  MYSTERY TEAM, the first feature film from the Derrick Comedy crew is finally coming out on DVD on May 25th and we've got a few clips to help you get an idea of what you are in for.

If you don't know about the Derrick Comedy crew, let me school you right quick.  Formed at NYU, Derrick Comedy is: Dan Eckman, Dominic Dierkes, DC Pierson, Donald Glover, and Meggie McFadden.  The comedy group quickly rose to fame with over 100 million hits to their hilarious video sketches on YouTube.

The film features the likes of Donald Glover (Community), Aubrey Plaza (FUNNY PEOPLE, Parks and Recreation), Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live), Matt Walsh (THE HANGOVER), and Dominic Dierkes (Parks and Recreation, Community), and DC Pierson (Community).

MYSTERY TEAM follows the adventures of three high-school virgins who are stuck solving childish whodunit mysteries in their neighborhood. But when these bumbling boy detectives are tasked to investigate a real murder, they see the ultimate opportunity to prove themselves once and for all.

The DVD comes packed with hilarious bonus features, including: audio commentary from Derrick Comedy, deleted material, “The Making-of Mystery Team” featurette, a preproduction test scene and more!

Check out three clips from MYSTERY TEAM below!

Interrogation scene (AskMen.com exclusive):  The Mystery Team uses the standard "Good Cop, Bad Cop" on a little girl.  (God that sounds so dirty.)

MYSTERY TEAM Interrogation Scene

Jason's Father: Donald Glover takes a meeting disguised as his own father but the only person buying it is him.  He is being reprimanded for kidnapping an elementary school child as part of one of the Mystery Team's ongoing investigations.

Bathroom Scene: the Mystery Team is running out of time to retrieve a ring from a less than desirable location.  With time of the essence, they must act fast so that they can escape pursuit on their cruiser bikes!

And because we love you oh so very much, we're also including this link to the new and ever so funny sketch entitled "Gink" available at College Humor.   This video takes aim at website feature competition and the bizarre lingo that goes along with it.
