Disney owns the Muppets and thanks to a lawsuit between Sesame Street and Avenue Q, Muppets are legally defined. This is NOT a Muppet movie, however most of the active Muppet performers are working on it. They have freedom to go crazy as Jim Henson intended. This is a must see for me but NOT my kids.
I can’t honestly gather up any interest for The Happytime Murders after viewing the red band trailer on You Tube. Not only does the trailer go out of its way to be offensive and crude, but it’s just not funny or clever. The film will have to rise above its marketing to garner my attention. Thankfully Josh and Adam will do the advance work for me.
As a 90's kid I grew up with The Muppets being pretty popular.
But since I've never really been a big fan of "muppet movies", I never caught on the hype.
I think I've only watched a few movies/sketches which includes : A Christmas Strory, The Swedish Chef (and some other ones that I can't remember the name of.
So it's pretty fair to say that I won't be planning to go see it, but maybe give it a chance when it comes out on Blu-Ray or various streaming platforms.
Thanks for a great show!
As a big fan of Meet the Feebles, that also takes the idea of lovable puppets and placing them in grown up scenarios I have to put a vote in for being curious about Happytime Murders.
