Cape Town – Put the kids to bed because they shouldn’t watch this.
This new puppet flick is zero Sesame but 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.
The film - which also stars Katherine Heigl, Elizabeth Banks, and Maya Rudolph - releases in South African cinemas on 31 August 2018.
