THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS Comes On Blu-ray This Christmas… If You Care

STXfilms and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment have officially announced that Brian Henson’s The Happytime Murders, starring Melissa McCarthy, Elizabeth Banks, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, and Leslie David Baker will be coming onto Blu-ray (waka, waka, get it?) this December.

The movie got horrid reviews and audience reactions were not much better. I’m thinking I might save this one for a rainy day. Like a super-hurricane rainy day.

The Happytime Murders is directed by Brian Henson from a screenplay by Todd Berger and stars Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, and Elizabeth Banks. Henson, McCarthy, Jeff Hayes, and Ben Falcone produce. It’s rated R for “strong crude and sexual content and language throughout, and some drug material.”

It will be available on December 18.


The Happytime Murders is a raunchy comedy set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist. Two clashing detectives with a shared secret, one human (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. A hilarious buddy cop murder mystery comedy at heart, the film is unapologetically bold and keeps audiences entertained from start to finish.
