The tone is stunning with its crudeness
June 23, 2020
The elements are there for a really funny movie -- a Jim Thompson story done with Muppets would be amazing -- so the film is not only bad; it's a huge disappointment.

As much as I hem and haw over the entertainment value of the film, it's clear that there is something here worth exploring. Maybe next time.

The film is basically a string of variations on the not-that-funny joke of cute puppets saying and doing naughty things.

Puppets have sex, kill each other, curse like sailors and abuse drugs. It's not anywhere near as lurid as it sounds.

Even if it's an hour and a half of the same joke, it's tremendously funny. [Full Review in Spanish]

The end credits feature an enjoyable 80's singalong...the most gratifying three minutes of the movie.

The Happytime Murders delivers the bare minimum of what was promised and can't rightly be considered an outright failure for doing so.
June 5, 2019
An empty offering of smut and silliness, with half-baked themes and misfired gags in abundance.
May 15, 2019
The Happytime Murders somehow goes for the laziest possible jokes while also trying way too hard to be crude.

No one will ever praise this film as a prime example of the comedy genre

The Happytimes Murders is sometimes funny... The rest of the time, it's a bad copy of previous achievements in buddy cop comedy. [Full review in Spanish]
March 13, 2019
90 minutes of laughless, mean-spirited hogwash

The Happytime Murders makes that musical look like a Saturday morning cartoon. The level of raunchiness, language and overall tone is off the charts. I kinda loved it!!!

So grotesque, so unfunny and so lacking in anything remotely resembling entertainment...

Unfortunately the movie seems to think that making a puppet show for adults means making a puppet show for adolescents, which might be ok, if it were actually ever the slightest bit funny.
February 12, 2019
the Muppet stalwarts behind it could not develop this into something sharper than the eye-rollingly, predictable sex-obsessed humor.
February 11, 2019
Lazy, unfunny and a waste of comedic potential...You'd be better served rewatching any of the Muppets films instead.

[Happytime Murders] is a weird, goofy, dirty-as-heck comedy. It is unabashedly silly and unapologetically foul. It is broad and base and is content to aim low. And if you've got a certain sort of sense of humor, it is a whole lot of fun.

The Happytime Murders is the kind of movie a bunch of middle school jocks would make after they saw one of the good Muppet movies and were so repulsed by its sincerity they decided to make fun of it in the most mean-spirited, oversexualized way possible.
