Movie Info & Cast
In a seedy underworld where flesh meets felt, crime isn’t cute. It just looks that way. Melissa McCarthy stars as a disgraced LAPD officer-turned-private investigator, who’s working with her partner on a dangerous new case: a murderer that’s targeting the stars of a hit kid’s show from the 80s. Only the victims, and her partner, are all puppets. Can she put a stop to the violence before somebody else loses their stuffing? Death, drugs, and debauchery – this is the naughty R-rated puppet movie you didn’t know you needed in your life. Directed by noted puppet expert Brian Henson, the film also stars Elizabeth Banks, Joel McHale, and Maya Rudolf.

Amazing. Anyone upset that they can’t take their kids should’ve read the title and watched the trailer.
OK WHEN I SEE SOME DUMB PARENT SAY THAT "DONT TAKE YOUR KID TO THIS MOVIE" 1. ITS RATED R! 2. ITS RATED R!! AND 3. ITS RATED RRR!!! SO DONT GIVE A MOVIE A BAD REVIEW BECAUSE YOU COULNT DO A LITTLE RESEARCH AND KNOW THAT THIS MOVIE IS NOT A KID FRIENDLY MOVIE! I HATE WHEN PEOPLE GIVE MOVIES A BAD REVIEW BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN PROBLEMS AND INSECURITY
It has its moments, several of which are provided by Ms. Rudolph, putting a spin on the girl-friday role. She has one scene of utter hilarity that shouldn’t be spoiled, and can’t be printed anyway, but may lead to “pilafing” becoming the word of the year on Urban Dictionary.
It's more than funny enough, packing lots of genuine, if frequently tasteless, laughs into its relatively brief running time
While the actors and puppeteers are committed to The Happytime Murders’ surreal reality, they almost do too good a job: This world’s authenticity is so complete that you’re left mostly slogging through how inanimate most everything else about the movie is.
