Muppets Made Malevolent

Peter Jackson’s Meet the Feebles is “a hilariously offensive film,” the Muppet’s exact reverse,” writes New York Times’ blogger Lia Miller. “As I began researching this article,” Miller writes, “I was reminded of the most fantastically warped Muppet-style movie ever made: Meet the Feebles, Jackson’s second full-length feature. “If you have a strong stomach, enjoy B-grade soaps or think you might enjoy suicidal Vietnam Vet drug-addicted puppets, puppet pornographers, puppet Maury Povich-style accusations of paternity (between a chicken and elephant no less), and you tolerate a general level of foul humour and malevolence in cinema, then you might enjoy this movie.”
