Bizarre Review: Happytime Murders

The Happytime Murders is possibly the worst movie ever made with a high budget.

Whoever came up with the idea of mixing Muppets with alcohol and sex was a twisted genius. It basically brings to life characters from childhood, and gives them bad habits.

The dark murder mystery gone awry is strangely addictive to watch. Despite there being puppets in the movie, this movie is in no way suitable for children. It’s probably not suitable for most adults.

There is a lot of drama that goes on in the background, adding to the storyline of the film. There’s something reminiscent of Team America, although the puppets are nothing alike. The puppets in Happytime Murders resemble humans most of the time, but come in all different kinds of colours, shapes, and species.

An unlikely partnership between a police officer and an ex-detective puppet takes them on a journey to solve the ongoing murders of characters from a show. They get into predicaments that are completely unimaginable, and end up having to work together to solve the crimes.

There are so many well-known actors in this movie, it is shocking. It is surprising that so many actors agreed to be in this movie, which can only mean there must have been a lot of money involved.

It’s so bad it’s actually kind of good. At first, there was no way I was going to get into the movie. But, after watching for a bit despite my apprehension, the movie pulls you in and makes you start guessing who dunnit.

I didn’t think I could get so invested in a twisted blue puppet. It could be because it is a Jim Henson movie.

So, I’m really confused about how to feel about the movie. I’ll give it six out of 10 popcorns for being so terribly well done.
