Synopsis by Kaitlin Elise Miller
In a world where puppets and humans coexist, two reluctantly partnered detectives, human Connie (Melissa McCarthy) and puppet Phil (Bill Barretta), must infiltrate the criminal underworld of Los Angeles to get to the bottom of a series of murders of former cast members of a beloved '80s kids show called "The Happytime Gang." The case gets personal when hitmen target Phil's brother and his former flame Jenny (Elizabeth Banks). Directed by Brian Henson. Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale and Leslie David Baker co-star.
