“The Happytime Murders” (2018)

I was interested in seeing R-rated Muppet film that was a film noir. The problem? This film is meant to be a comedy, and there’s basically one joke; Muppets swear and tell crass sex jokes. That’s it. Most of these jokes are so bad that even Chuck Lorre would reject them. The problem with this film is that it wants to be a film that’s entirely shock comedy, but you can’t make a film made up entirely of shock humor consistently funny. The characters are awful, the mystery is stupid and doesn’t hold up to scrutiny, and the film’s attempts at social satire are honestly pathetic. What a waste of a good set-up and potential.
