Mystery Girls


Two former detective TV show starlets brought back together by a real-life mystery. Charlie Contour (Garth) is a suburban housewife and mother, while Holly Hamilton (Spelling) longs for her glory days in the 90's when she was on television. Both of their lives are disrupted when Nick (Pinzon), a witness to a crime and a ‘Mystery Girls' fanatic, will only speak to the infamous duo, and the former friends must reunite and put their TV crime-solving skills to the test.

    We have a hollow, laugh-enhanced comedy in which the biggest draw is Tori Spelling proving she will do anything to remain on television.

    Ultimately, the show is a silly, flimsy, and occasionally fun summer diversion for Spelling-Garth fans. Everyone else can pass on solving this Mystery.

    A few more stabs at 1990s pop culture would go a long way in making this better.

    Mystery Girls has some fun with viewer knowledge of rumors of disharmony on the “90210” set (yes, Shannen Doherty gets a shout-out) even if it all plays to cat-fighting women stereotype. Spelling comes off both worse (she’s mistaken for a prostitute twice in the first 10 minutes) and funnier (she gets the best lines; Ms. Garth plays the straight woman).

  • Gail Pennington

    The show (co-created by Spelling) is standard-issue cable sitcom, with acting that's too broad (Garth is the exception here) and a laugh track that's loud and awkward.

    There is some joy in seeing Spelling and Garth together again, and in some decent bitchy lines (Garth to Spelling: "I see you're still using more makeup than a geisha"). But the only mystery worth investigating is why the series isn't better.

    Mystery Girls is silly, tongue-in-cheek fun where we’re all in on the gag. How long it can be sustained is the question. But for now, at the very least, it’s a much better look for Tori Spelling.

    Most of the show’s meta so far is an expected but amusing sketch of celebrity has-been-ism.

    Spelling and Garth were and are [a real team]. Mystery Girls is silly, with broad humor, but the nostalgic appeal of these two broads being back together is no mystery.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    The pilot is itself uneven, with the go-for-bonkers impudence of a live-action "Family Guy." But without it, Mystery Girls might be just another ABC Family-com for viewers who have aged out of Disney Channel and silly situations with sentimental topping for studio audience uproar.

    The writing is mostly painfully unfunny.
