The Happytime Murders is directed by Brian Henson and stars Himself, Melissa Melissa McCarthy, Elizabeth Banks, and more.
In this world, puppets and humans live together but they’re treated bad. Detective Phil Phillips is an ex-cop but when two puppets from an old TV show wind up dead, Phil suspects something is up so he rejoins as a consultant. Reunited with his former human partner, the 2 have to put the past aside and protect the remaining cast members before the killer strikes. At first, I found this concept really funny. R rated Puppets living with humans?? Sounds like it could be a dumb fun movie made just for laughs but once I saw the reviews and the score it was getting I knew it had flopped. I still wanted to watch it though. Maybe I went into it with really low expectations, but I didn’t find the movie to be that bad. It wasn’t good, but I did get some entertainment out of it. The biggest reason this movie flopped was because of the comedy. The movie didn’t need a good story or well developed characters, whoever wanted to watch this movie wanted to watch it to laugh but the jokes don’t really work. Most of them suck and the jokes that did work are the ones that we already saw in the trailer so it really wasn’t any surprise. I’ve never really liked Melissa McCarthy, I don’t find her funny but she was alright. I HATED Joel McHale in this, Ive never hated a character so much in my life, HE SUCKED!! Other people’s acting in this was also bad, you could tell they didn’t care, they just wanted to get paid and dip. Being honest, I really just wanted to watch some R rated puppets. This movie could have been 100% funnier and way better but at the end, just like the acting and the jokes and pretty much everything.... it was alright, I wasn’t bored. 🤷🏻♂️ Grade: C
