In a world where puppets and humans coexist, two reluctantly partnered detectives, human Connie (Melissa McCarthy) and puppet Phil (Bill Barretta), must infiltrate the criminal underworld of Los Angeles to get to the bottom of a series of murders of former cast members of a beloved '80s kids show called "The Happytime Gang." The case gets personal when hitmen target Phil's brother and his former flame Jenny (Elizabeth Banks). Directed by Brian Henson. Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale and Leslie David Baker co-star.~Kaitlin Elise Miller
Feature Commentary with Director Brian Henson and Bill Barretta
I liked the movie, funny, crude, entertaining. My only gripe is on this home movie release, universal went with iTunes as the only redemption method for the digital copy. Not cool. I do have an iTunes account and redeem it, but I can only watch it on my computer. I am an Android and Windows user, so ultraviolet copies are much more useful. I prefer to drink the Kool-aid of Apple as little as possible. I do not like how their OS and programs are set up, so I do not use them. I hope this does not become a trend.
I love watching funny movies, because there purpose is to make you laugh because of how crazy it is. Movies like 'The Mask', both 'Ace Ventura' movies, 'Sausage Party', etc. Yeah, they're stupid, but that's why we watch them. To laugh!! And with this movie, I couldn't stop laughing. The cow in the adult shop, had me CRYING LAUGHING!! The detective in his office when the FBI came to see him the first time, made me have to pause the player, so I could laugh without missing anything. I'm telling you, this movie is Gold. I hope they make another one, because where else are you gonna see puppets driving around in cars, and doing other questionable things. Lol.
This movie is very funny. I don't know how I missed it when it was out in theaters. If you are into tongue in cheek humor you'll absolutely love this. I haven't had a chance to watch the special features and extras yet, but I'm sure they'll be just as good as the movie. I also love that this package has multiple formats. It's a great value for the price.
I thought this movie was hilarious! It's definitely not for SJWs, Nanny No-Nos, those looking to be offended by something/anything, and members of the modern victim culture. I'm not a fan of Melissa McCarthy, but I thought she did a decent job in the movie. If you like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Meet the Feebles, and/or Team America, then you should thoroughly enjoy this film as well.
A funny movie fron Melissa McCarthy and the Puppets. McCarthy seems to just take any script. The lady is funny and should demand more from her manager and agent. She made this movie and if this would have Tina Fey, it would have been horrible. McCarthy and Muppets, thanks for the low price on my BRay n Digital Copy.
