One needs to have a very dark sense of humour to genuinely enjoy it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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.

Like watching a one-note joke die a horrible, painful death.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
September 7, 2018
For years, the failed cop looking for redemption storyline has been overused, and no amount of puppets can put in the originality that would be required to invigorate it.
September 6, 2018
This wannabe crime comedy barely limps along as passible entertainment.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
September 5, 2018
Zero out of five stars for unparalleled, iconic perversity and destroying a legacy.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/5

McCarthy is still great, and the human cast is supported by the brilliant and unappreciated Maya Rudolph, and the talented and subtle Elizabeth Banks. [Full review in Spanish]

The simple facts are that Todd Berger's screenplay is not clever enough, funny enough or classy enough to entertain a wider audience - shortcomings that Henson's lacklustre direction cannot conceal.

Where The Happytime Murders excels is in its humour, because it's very, very funny. But more than that, it's filthy. Utterly, gloriously, unapologetically, deeply, darkly, sexually filthy.

A soulless film that takes the concept of a one-note joke to new heights.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

A film that is not only unfunny in every way, it is downright annoying, inept, and embarrassing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

As those cranky old Muppet men in the balcony, Statler and Waldorf, once said, "I've seen detergents that left a better film."

The connoisseur of filth within me is pleased to report how wonderfully nasty much of the felted proceedings here are to behold.

A huge disappointment and a wasted opportunity. [Full review in Spanish]

The Happytime Murders is not fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Many should shoulder the terrible burden for this poor effort, in particular Brian Henson, son of Muppet marvels Jim and Jane, for sullying his family legacy and Melissa McCarthy for listening to either her agent or wallet too closely.
