Movie Info

In this black teen comedy, a young man (Ethan Hawke) is thrilled that his kindly older brother has arranged for him to date the bombshell next door. To further impress her, little brother takes his sibling's shiny sports car. If he had known that there were a pair of corpses in the trunk though, the youth may have changed his mind. Matters get really messy when the cops pull him over and check out the trunk themselves. Soon he and his date find themselves pursued by the police, the tong and an irate florist.

Critic Reviews for Mystery Date

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

It's one of those movies where the setup is unbelievably complicated, and involves a chain of mistaken identities, and we sit patiently in the audience and wait while the writers get all of their ducks in a row.

The screenplay is immature at best, although with some cutting and embellishing, it might have been a far better entry into the genre.

Laughs, Romance and Dead Bodies....what a treat!
