Sundance Film Trailer: MYSTERY TEAM

by Joey Paur

'Mystery Team' is one of the movies I am hoping to get to see while I am up in Park City Utah for the Sundance Film Festival. The film looks pretty damn funny. I taste a hint of 'Napoleon Dynamite' in this trailer, which was a huge success at the festival not to long ago launching the careers of both Actor Jon Heder and Director Jared Hess, but this looks a bit more rated 'R', hence the language and strip club. The film was directed by Dan Eckman and stars Donald Dlover, D.C. Pierson, and Dominic Dierkes as the mystery team. Here is the official synopsis of the film:

At age seven, Oakdale's Mystery Team was a band of kid detectives dedicated to solving child-sized mysteries (like who put their finger in the pie, and who stole the tricycle), and the town loved them for it. Now they're eighteen years old, about to graduate from high school, yet they're still storming the playground to bust little kids, and the town of Oakdale is sick to death of it.

When a little girl sees their sign advertising "Mysteries Solved, Ten Cents," she asks the gang to find out who killed her parents. The Team embarks on a mystery that takes them deep into a violent conspiracy that sees their lives threatened, their friendship strained and tests their claim that they're "real detectives."

I think this could be one of the movies that gets a lot of buzz from the festival. Check out the trailer what do you think?
