NSFW ‘The Happytime Murders’ Clip: Sugar Addict Offers to Suck Melissa McCarthy’s…

Published

The world has turned on STX’s The Happytime Murders, their R-rated puppet-themed comedy that started off with such Blair Witch-esque hyperbole that we thought it was going to be better than Peter Jackson’s Meet the Feebles. It made some bold promises and we were all on board – until last week. The second trailer was deflating, carrying barely any new footage and failing to up the ante. It’s 2018, we’re both desensitized, while also walking on eggshells around every single thing that could be deemed offensive. How do you release a movie like the Happytime Murders in today’s climate? You don’t? Proof comes in this NSFW clip, which hopes to change the narrative going into opening weekend. Sure, it’s vile, but it’s also not funny nor shocking. It should be, but it’s not and I can’t explain why there’s no life in this puppet film. I suspect it’s going to be DOA upon release.

The comedy is set in the underbelly of a Los Angeles where puppets and humans co-exist. Two clashing detectives, one human (Melissa McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together to figure out who is brutally murdering the former cast of The Happytime Gang, a beloved classic puppet show.
