The HappyTime Murders Trailer

There has been a movie that I have been wildly curious about for a whole year now. That movie is "The HappyTime Murders"

I wrote about this almost a year ago. Brian Hensen, the son of the legendary Jim Hensen was following in his father's footsteps. Well, in a way at least. He has a knack for puppeteering like his old man, but instead of making kid-friendly fair, it looks like Brian will be into much darker things. This trailer proves that this is going to be a twisted little detective comedy.

I'll be honest, I'll never look at silly string the same way again.

As much as I have been looking forward to this trailer, I can't help but think that maybe the script is trying a little too hard? I definitely didn't laugh as much as I thought I was going to laugh. While the silly string scene was a moment of hilarity, it does push itself a little too far. Sometimes Seth MacFarlane overdoes his jokes every once in awhile on "Family Guy." There was definitely a vibe similar present. Alas, despite a few flaws, I am a huge fan of "Family Guy," so maybe I'll end up liking this too. It was bound to happen sometime, an adult version of "Sesame Street," I just hope they don't blow a great opportunity.
