    Just remembered I do have a sense of humour watching it again but still way to long

    I'm still excited but will have to see another trailer

    ''No Sesame. All Street.'' How clever.

    @Old Thunder I wanna know what you think of the trailer.

    I’m disgusted and confused. This is raunch for the sake of raunch. Disappointed. :o

    Yeah I'm interested, but I was hoping for something a little more... horror. I don't think they have to prove their comedic talent but I do think it would be nice to see them showcasing their puppetry skills more in being able to create horrifying things and then use them to the full potential.

    Which is why The Thing is one of my favorite films.

    I'm interested but I'm not setting my hopes up too high. It'll likely be an enjoyable watch no matter what, but I doubt it'll be a masterpiece of cinema.

    I know that they’ve this planed for a while, but if I were them I would adjust some of the tag lines as some might be confused with the Sesame Street nod in the first trailer.

    Still it had good jokes in it for a first trailer. Fantastic way they put it out there.

    Given who’s playing who in the film I was almost hoping for a Pepe cameo appearance since this would fit his “tough guy” appearance a bit. :rolleyes:

    Brian himself said a few years ago that he's been embracing the R rating, so I don't know WHAT you were expecting.

    The Creature Shop, yes, Company, no.

    I did like the FBI joke. FBI -F*cking big idiot

    And bill Barretta was the perfect choice for the main character

    Watched it back and I enjoyed it much more this time around. The odd looking creature at the start was hilarious so was the hookers and @Froggy Fool you'll be happy to know I did laugh at the Silly string cum gag.

    And @Muppy it's a R rated comedy what do you expect.

    The movie really isn't for my type of sense of humour, but if y'all are looking forward to this, more power to you, I guess lol

    I gotta say though, this could have been something really amazing. I guess I should stop automatically comparing it to Roger Rabbit, which had clever humour and provided some great social commentary. Having something like this coming from the Henson Company is rather disappointing.

    But still, who am I to dictate what they do?

    I'm saying this could determine the fate of the Henson Company

    If successful and well liked- it could kick start the henson company into making more movies

    If unsuccessful and panned by critics- I can see it being near enough the end of the road for the henson company

    I mean yeah, but then again, we've only seen the first trailer. Maybe they put all the meh-er stuff in it and are saving the mindblowing stuff for the actual feature.

    I think this quote from Brian Henson shows that we should have faith in this movie.
    Audience member: Are you aware of the R-rated puppet movie, Meet the Feebles?
    Brian: Yeah, I'm not a big fan of it, but I am aware of it. And I've never been able to watch it all the way through, I don't know why. There are some things I like in it, and then there's parts where I go "Aye aye aye." I'm actually working on an R-rated puppet comedy that is also dirty, but it actually tells a really good story. But there are some fun things in Meet the Feebles. It came out at an odd time where I wasn't interested in seeing it. When did it come out? It must have been the '90s?
    Moderator: Early '90s.
    Brian: Yeah. It is very rude and there are times when it's fun and funny, and other times where it steps over the line, as far as I was concerned.

    I had heard that Brian had been trying to get this thing made for years, but no one was really interested in it. Then Melissa McCarthy signed-on & basically re-wrote the script.

    I don't particularly care for the idea of 'Filthy Muppets,' but when I showed the trailer to a couple of non-puppet friends, they laughed their ***** off & said they wanted to see it.

    I have friends who got work out of the movie, so I'm happy for them at least.

    I'm starting to agree with Conor... The first trailer doesn't really show off the actual plotline, but rather shows the viewer dirty muppets and such, which really gives the wrong message.

    I'm also gonna have to wait for a second trailer.

    Looking forward to see this - it looks like fun.

    I am surprised that a China/South Korea Company would fund a movie with puppets:smirk:

    Fingers crossed the film will do well - good luck STX Entertainment films:

    So uh.... Yeah.

    I just watched a trailer for this movie. Looks really funny! I loved when one of the Muppets just sprays semen everywhere. :laugh:
