Happytime Murders, The (15)


Comedy in which two detectives investigate a series of puppet murders.

The critical consensus

Who Framed Roger Rabbit meets Meets The Feebles, in a disappointing adult comedy that never lives up to the promise of its premise.

**(*)(*)(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 23/08/2018

Forgettable, regrettable, inexcusable.

Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 24/08/2018

Overall...this is dismal fare.

Melissa McCarthy investigates a series of brutal puppet murders in a staggeringly bad attempt to add X-rated humour to Sesame Street.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Charles Bramesco, The Guardian, 22/08/2018

If the appealing, strictly for adults, premise runs out of steam, the film still delivers lots of silly wisecracks, absurd, potty-mouthed humour, bodily fluids and detailed world-building.
