There isn't nearly enough substance to sustain 90 minutes of a movie and before long it all begins to feel a bit repetitive.

It's refreshing to once again see a lowbrow comedy that can [simply] be lowbrow without declaring itself a hero just for existing.

A fun combination of live-action and puppets, "The Happytime Murders" is an outrageously raunchy look at what life may have been like on a certain "Street" if that show had taken place in the worse part of the worse town ever.

The only audience that might conceivably be amused by The Happytime Murders is too young to buy tickets.

Henson and company attempted something different here. It didn't always succeed, but enough of it works to warrant a mild recommendation...

There's not enough invention or material for 91 minutes of this and the only performance that feels particularly inspired here is Maya Rudolph who works her usual 'how-is-she-this-hilarious?' magic.

There's plenty to laugh at and indulge in The Happytime Murders and I think the voice-work by Barretta is a sensational highlight. Proving there's a solid comedy lurking beneath a script that struggles to find beats and moments when necessary.

This is easily the worst film to play in theatres in years.

The Happytime Murders turns out to be a place where good ideas went to die.

Filthy, funny, far-out and from the seedy side of the street.

There's no way I can recommend this movie. [Full review in Spanish]

The film has some decent gags at the margins, but its central conceit is never especially funny,
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
September 24, 2018
A stitched-together film that can't survive on a rote noir storyline, some human energy and too many gags about puppets gone wild.

One needs to have a very dark sense of humour to genuinely enjoy it.

It's amazing how much wasted space there is in a movie that's rolling credits at 81 minutes.

"Muppets, but they curse and ****" really just isn't enough to cut it. There needs to be something more to it, and what's frustrating is that the film has that something.

Grossing out your audience isn't going to solve your problems and make your film work.

Often though, the film feels mean-spirited. Phil is self-hating, characters yell and scream at each other and there is a fair bit of misogyny, even though McCarthy's Connie gets to challenge some of it.

It's fun for a while but once the novelty wears off, you realise The Happytime Murders has a thin, limited storyline.
