No Sesame. All Street.
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.
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 (McCarthy), 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 connoisseur of filth within me is pleased to report how wonderfully nasty much of the felted proceedings here are to behold.” (San Diego Reader)
