The Happytime Murders will undoubtedly be at the bottom of every worst film list of 2018 and with a high pedigree of potential flowing through its wings and significant names attached to the project, both behind and in front of the camera, it comes as quite the disaster. Trailers looked ludicrously dull and unpragmatic, leading to mixed responses, to say the least, that featured little to no positive response. The film itself, the final product, a production of almost a year is undoubtedly, unequivocally, a total complete disaster. Not in the sense of filmmaking merits, but contextually within plot and definition.
To sell yourself as a comedy, it needs to be funny and full of humour.
