Fructose, Fluff and F-bombs are flying in the new Adult puppet comedy “The Happytime Murders”

THESE ARE NOT YOUR KIDS MUPPETS!

Brian Henson, son of the Muppet creator Jim Henson, assembles a group of comedians to star opposite a new group of stuffed puppets in the new “who dunnit” film “The Happytime Murders”. Modern day Los Angeles and puppets live and work along side humans. The relationship is not totally harmonious as humans ridicule and torture puppets, while dogs treat them like chew toys.

Private Investigator Phil Phillips, a puppet and former police detective, walks into his office and into a new case. Bubbles (Rudolph), his secretary tells Philips he has a new client in his office and did he…. Sandra, a knockout puppet who is receiving threatening letters. Phillips takes the case and the clues in the letter lead him to a porn shop where he runs into a familiar puppet, Mr. Bumblypants (voice of Kevin Clash) , who claims not to have a porn addiction and is lost. Phillips questions the store owner only to be interrupted by a crew shooting puppet porn in the back room with an alien milking a cow in bondage and milk is spewing all over the store. Phillips goes in back to check the store purchase receipts as a mysterious figure with a shotgun and kills all the puppets in the store. Phillips emerges from the back to see the fluff floating everywhere.

Mile 22

Starring:

Mark Wahlberg- James Silva

Lauren Cohan- Alice Kerr

Rhonda Rousey- Sam Snow

John Malkovich- Bishop

Wahlberg, Cohen and Rousey lead a CIA black ops crew against terrorists in the new action flick “Mile 22”

Peter Berg brings together an all-star cast including Mark Wahlberg, Lauren Cohan, Rhonda Rousey and John Malkovich in the espionage action film “Mile 22”.

James Silva (Wahlberg), an orphan after his family are killed in a car accident. James took the path through the military and became one of the CIA’s best operatives. Silva is high adrenaline and a bit of OCD that he controls by snapping a band on his wrist.  Silva’s crew lead by Alice Kerr (Cohan) and Sam Snow (Rousey) goes by the code name “Overwatch”. The government handles espionage by first using diplomacy, then option 2 is the military and option 3 is OVERWATCH!

 

Mile 22 opens with Overwatch moving in on a house in the suburbs that has been identified as a KGB safe house and according to the cyber crew led by Bishop (Malkovich) there are 5 hostiles in the house. Overwatch descends on the house and captures all 5 Russian agents and begins processing them and searching for information on the computer drives. Bishop finds a sixth heat signature in the house and turns out to be another Russian agent in a hidden room. Bullets start flying and Russians start dropping but not before they release gasoline to torch the house. Silva is the sniper watching the back of the house while his team clears it. A young Russian that was burned badly makes his way out of the house and comes face to face with Silva. Bishop orders James to eliminate the agent so Silva shoots him in the head.

THE EQUALIZER 2 review
