Michelle's TAKE:   In the #HappytimeMurders mystery, murder, sex and more come together in this hilarious film based in an alternate world where puppets and humans coexist, but not so harmoniously. And it’s no Sesame Street. Grade/A-

It’s the puppet show you never thought you’d see, but kinda glad you did.
Melissa McCarthy delivers her usual brand of quick wit as the lead and the supporting characters fit like a puppet, I mean glove. Not suitable for children.  (Guest reviewer - Michelle Tennis)

Directed by Brian Henson

Starring Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, and Elizabeth Banks

THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS is a filthy comedy set in the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist.  Two clashing detectives with a shared secret, one human (Melissa McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together again to solve the brutal murders of the former cast of a beloved classic puppet television show. - STX Entertainment

MPAA Rating: R for strong crude and sexual content and language throughout, and some drug material
