Meet the feebles meets Who framed roger rabbit
25 November 2018 | by adamcomitoSee all my reviews

I know everyone was hating on this movie, to the point where I wasn't going to watch it. But Im glad I did. It was worth a watch atleast once. It's crude and the jokes are not laugh out loud funny, but it is what it is. Puppets doing crude humour. As stated it's like Meet the feebles+who framed roger rabbit. There is much worse movies out at the moment (like 'The Nun', what a stinker).

Probably helps if you get high first, it's not meant to be serious so don't go into it expecting it to be something it was never intended to be..
