The highly anticipated comedy/thriller ‘The Happytime Murders’ has been built as a raunchy, offensive comedy that is sure to entertain, and this weekend it had it’s chance to leave a lasting impression on audiences as it was released on Friday.
While the film, which stars Melissa McCarthy, Elizabeth Banks, Bill Barretta, Joel McHale, Maya Rudolph and Leslie David Baker, certainly left an impression, it wasn’t a good one.
“Detective Phil Philips is a down-on-his-luck puppet who used to work for the Los Angeles Police Department. When two puppets from an old TV show wind up dead, Phil suspects something is afoot and rejoins the LAPD as a consultant. Reunited with Connie Edwards, his former human partner, the bickering duo soon find themselves in a race against time to protect other former cast members before the killer strikes again.”
The film centers on the tension of the two former partners, and their disdain for one another, as they try to crack a case that forces them to reunite despite their mutual animosity. The laughs are few and far between, and when they don’t nail one of their many attempts at jokes, the movie is left floundering in a dull story, with cliches and a flow that won’t do anything other than put you to sleep.
The Happytime Murders doesn’t just disappoint, it flat out doesn’t show up, giving the viewer a complete waste of time, and aiming more to put the audience to sleep than to actually entertain them, or conjure up anything more than a few rare chuckles.
