    Listening to your review when you talked about how from the advertisements, it was clear that this was not a childen’s film, made me think about what I thought when I saw the film. Two women with their your young children walked into the theater with me and all I could think was, “What the hell is wrong with you, the film is called Happyyime Murders, and the commercials were as explicit as you can get on tv.” Not surprisingly, about fifteen-twenty minutes in the women get up and walk out with their kids.

    Even though their was litigation against the release of this film, I found that absent the adult content, it really did adhere to the spirit of Jim Henson’s Muppets. I don’t know how Brian’s dad would ah felt about the adult content, but the depiction of marginalized people’s was right in line with The Muppets I grew up watching.


    I liked the fact that this film was short, because, for me, I couldn’t watch two hours. Imagine seeing 3-4 cumshot jokes in the same film, for example. It can get a bit old, to be honest. The Pilofing bit was the funniest part of this film by Maya Rudolph & Melissa McCarthy did a good job with this role. The Puppets were the real star & seeing how the work came to be from the creators at the end of the movie was cool to see. Not a movie I’d rush to see again, but it’s good for a matinee or the eventual rental.
