HKFanatic's rating of the film Mystery Team

I rarely watch comedies (I get enough humor out of straight-faced action flicks) but even I have to admit this is a damn funny movie. An earnest send-up of junior detective squads like the Hardy Boys, with an endlessly quotable script ("I don't know, Jason. According to his shirt, he has 'no fear.'") and an appearance by indie darling Aubrey Plaza. Has a similar vibe to the 90's comedies I grew up with.
