Nine Days Review 'Took me on a journey that is unforgettable'

The Happytime Murders arriving on Digital on November 20th & on Blu-ray Combo Pack December 4th


“Hilarious, wickedly original and crazily quirky” (Neil Pond, Parade), The Happytime Murders is directed and produced by Brian Henson (The Muppet Christmas Carol) alongside producers Jeffrey Hayes, Melissa McCarthy, and Ben Falcone. The film also features an all-star comedic cast including Melissa McCarthy (The Boss), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids), Joel McHale (“Community”), and Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect).

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.

Packed with clever improv and shocking humor, The Happytime Murders on Blu-rayTM, DVD and Digital showcases side-splitting bonus features including deleted scenes, a gag reel, feature commentary with filmmakers and cast, and special featurettes that take fans further into the twisted and scandalous world inhabited by both humans and puppets.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incriminating …
