Described as a ’’filthy comedy’, this is a murder mystery set in seedy Los Angeles where humans and puppets co-exist, but puppets are viewed as second-class citizens. When the puppet cast of an ’80s children’s TV show begins to get murdered one by one, a former cop, who has since become a private eye, takes on the case.

FPB Report (SA)
GenreComedy, crime
LanguageFrequent, very strong impact, glamorized and demeaning.
NudityInfrequent, low impact, brief and seductive.
SexNone (sic)
ViolenceStrong impact, minimal blood letting, fairly frequent.
PrejudiceFairly frequent gender based prejudice directed and belittling women.
BlasphemyNone
Drug abuseNone (sic)
CommentsThe material contains complex and mature themes presented in a comedic context, where humans and puppets are set in a realistic world. Themes include crime investigation, blackmail, extortion, death, being framed, escape from custody, deception, lies, loyalty, friendships, conflict and reconciliation, revenge, betrayal, seduction, psychopathic behaviour, seduction, partnerships, teamwork, vengeance, guilt, prejudice against puppets and women. The central theme in the film is that of revenge, crime investigation and innocent killing. Although themes are comedic, but they are not sufficient enough to reduce the overall very strong impact elements which includes very strong adult sexual content, very strong frequent language which is sustained through out the film. The incorporation of themes and elements is likely to be disturbing, inappropriate, distressing and will prematurely expose children under 18 to very strong adult experiences.
