OUR RATING: ★★☆☆☆
Puppet crime action comedy directed by Brian Henson. The story is set in a world where puppets co-exist with humans as second class citizens. When the puppet cast of a beloved classic puppet television show, The Happytime Gang, begins to get murdered one by one, a former puppet cop, Phil Phillips (Bill Barretta), who has since become a private eye, takes on the case and is forced to work with his ex-partner, human cop, Connie Edwards (Melissa McCarthy), to solve the brutal murders.
As the killings continue, Jenny (Elizabeth Banks), Phil’s former flame, is next on the list. It’s up to Phil and Connie to find the culprit, but as bad blood and old resentments resurface, the clues start pointing to the only viable suspect: Phil himself. Now he’s on the run with only his wits and hard-headed determination as he and his partner attempt to solve the Happytime Murders.
