The Happytime Murders is the funniest movie of the year
August 24th, 2018 under Joel McHale, Melissa McCarthy, Sesame Street/Muppets. [ Comments: none ]


When I saw the trailer for The Happytime Murders, I watched it in a loop because I could not get enough of it. I was like did I just see a puppet have sex and ejaculate all over the place for what seems like forever. At that moment, I was in love. However, I was a little hesitant that all of the highlarious moments would just be in the trailer. Boy was I wrong, there are several more moments that you can never unsee. Yet, they will make you laugh until you cry. Thus, you are going to run out and want to see the movie that is in theaters now.

For over 30 years, puppets have lived among us, but now they are starting to get their own identities. Phil Phillips (Bill Barretta) is one of them and he was the first and only puppet cop. One day, when he was out on assignment, something goes wrong and he was fired from the force. Now, he works as a private eye.

Sandra White (Dorien Davies) comes to him for help. She hands him a letter full of cut out letters that someone is threatening to expose her secret sexual life. She cannot let this happen to her, so she asks Phil to help her.

His first clue leads him to an adult bookstore that he frequents. He runs into an old friend, Mr. Bumblypants (Kevin Clash), who denies that it is he shopping at the store. However, Phil is not there to catch up, he needs to solve his case. He goes to the back room to get a file. While he is there, everyone in the front is gunned down. Stuffing and more will fly all over the place.

The cops are called in and his old partner, Detective Edwards (Melissa McCarthy) is one of them. The two of them cannot stand each other. Nevertheless, as more murder count starts to go up wherever Phil is at, the two of them realize they are going to have to work together. Because now the case is personal, they killed his brother, Larry (Victor Yerrid) and Phil’s ex-girlfriend, Jenny (Elizabeth Banks). Humans and puppets get it on; do you have a problem with that?

Back to the case, Phil realizes that they all have something in common; they were all on the show Happytime Gang. Why is someone killing everyone off from this beloved show? That is what Phil and Edwards have to find out before they are all past tense.

Thankfully, they will have some help from Lieutenant Banning (Leslie David Baker) and FBI agent Campbell (Joel McHale). Although, the latter one hates puppets especially Phil.

Just when you think you know what is going to happen next, they surprise you. All leading to one hell of an ending to an epic movie that is your new go-to comedy when you need to laugh uncontrollably.

Brian Henson, Jim Henson’s son, directed this movie. His father gave us The Muppets for kids, and his son gives us puppets for adults. Why can’t we have something that our kids cannot have that makes us feel like kids?

As I said, this is not a movie for kids. There is a lot of raunchy humor, but it is not disgusting. I still have images from the movie; I cannot get out of my head. That is not a bad thing because I laugh when I ever I think of some of the things they did in the adult bookstore and many of the other scenes. It is very creative is all I will say.

Well, that and do not listen to the critics who hate this movie. They love Oscar-nominated movies and those put us to sleep. This movie will make you laugh until you pee. Therefore, bring a towel with you.

In addition, make sure to stay through the credits to see some behind the scenes action. Like how the puppets interacted with the humans and that sex scene. The sex one was so wrong, and yet so right.

Just like the title The Happytime Murders, you will leave having had a happy time and a killer one!

BTWF: Joel McHale in Diagnosis Murder
August 22nd, 2018 under Before They Were Famous, Dick Van Dyke, Joel McHale. [ Comments: none ]


Before Joel McHale was investigating murders in The Happytime Murders, he was the one who was murdered on Diagnosis Murder. He looks younger now than he did when he was 30 in that 2002 episode.

An inconvenient question could have led to an inconvenient joke on Match Game!
July 6th, 2018 under Alec Baldwin, Joel McHale, Laverne Cox. [ Comments: none ]


Match Game is back on ABC and the show had some new first-time celebrity panelists like David Arquette, Michael Ealy and Laverne Cox on the game show yesterday. Even though they are newbies, they showed us humor never gets old when it is unintended!

Alec Baldwin asked the question, “When Al Gore was younger, he made a movie called Inconvenient Truth. Now that he is getting older, he is seeing his doctor about an inconvenient blank.”

Alex was hoping that the celebs would say ache, and he was so wrong. So wrong, the audience rightfully booed him. Joel McHale went with, “constant pee.” Constance Zimmer thought it should be “hernia”. Arquette went with the opposite of McHale because he said, “poop.” Caroline Rhea’s response rhymed with Arquette’s because she thought it should be “tooth”.

Believe it or not, it was tame until then. When Alec got to Ealy, he wrote down “penis.” I guess he forgot who was sitting to his left. Before Baldwin even had a chance to say anything, Cox warned him, “Don’t go there Alec!” She then added, “No comment on that!” In case you have been living under a rock and a hard place, she previously went to her doctors for an inconvenient penis. Oh the jokes they could have made, but ABC’s censors would have Arquette’s answer if they did.

In case you were wondering, Cox went little higher with her answer. She thought of what most older men complain about and that is prostate.

When it comes to the newbies, I think all of them would make great repeat panelists. In fact, Cox was so funny, she deserves her own game show.

A Futile and Stupid Gesture looks potent and brilliant!
December 22nd, 2017 under Joel McHale, Netflix, Will Forte. [ Comments: none ]


Before there was Saturday Night Live, there was National Lampoon. Several of the people who worked with the National Lampoon, went on to SNL. A Futile and Stupid Gesture is the story of the people behind the magazine that changed comedy forever with their magazine and their films.

Will Forte leads the wacky group of people who made the ’70s even funnier. Plus, who doesn’t want to see how Joel McHale plays his former co-star Chevy Chase. That has to be an Oscar worthy performance if I ever heard one.

Therefore mark your calendars for January 26th because that is when retro humor will be current again.
