The Happytime Murders is a muppet comedy for adults where Melissa McCarthy teams up with a muppet detective to solve a mystery. Directed by Brian Henson, who’s also directed a couple of regular muppet movies, this trailer makes it look like the movie is too obsessed with the fact that such a movie even exists to do anything interesting with its promising premise. The jokes are all of the “oh look, a muppet just said fuck!” variety, and I’m not expecting anything better than the average raunchy Hollywood comedy.

The Happytime Murders will release in theatres on August 17.
