Suckit, Big Bird
THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS is a silly buddy-cop, film-noir, puppet-porno. If Jim Henson's son doing naughty things to his father's toys is your thing, this is the comedy for you. The jokes range from mildy funny to "What the Hell did I just"... Not for the squeamish, there are several instances of explicit puppet on puppet/human action that will make you laugh as much as cringe. The mystery is intriguing, yet predictable. At first entertaining, the constant foul language does eventually become tiring. "I get it. Your puppets cuss." You leave having had some chuckles, but maybe in need of a good, hard bath. There is a fun behind-the-scenes, mid-credits blooper reel. The cast appears to have had more fun making it than you might have watching it. I give this a Solid, "Suckit, Big Bird" rating.
