Have you ever felt like a movie would be better with puppets?
Happytime Murders Movie
The Happytime Murders, starring Melissa McCarthy and a slew of felt-covered friends, arrives at O’Neil Cinemas this week. The Rated R comedy is about the investigation of the murders of the puppet cast of an ’80s children’s TV show.
Warning: This is NOT a movie for kids. Watch the TV spot below.
In July, Cory Taylor posed to Twitter:
You can replace the cast of any movie with The Muppets, but you keep one of the human actors. What movie and which human do you keep?

Here are some of the funniest ideas from that thread!
Now I am thinking Die Hard with muppets and Alan Rickman

The Matrix, but keep Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith. His annoyance directed towards Muppets would be hilarious. Plus, Kermit as Neo would be perfection.

Talented Mr Ripley – Keep Matt Damon. He kills and assumes the life of Kermit, hoping nobody will notice.

When Harry Met Sally, keep Bruno Kirby, because I want to see Jess fighting with muppets about the wagon wheel coffee table and baby fish mouth pic.twitter.com/tDT53Sblyl

Castaway – keep Wilson

Ferris Bueller, keep Cameron.

Groundhog Day, keep Bill Murray.

Basic Instinct, keep Michael Douglas. And, of course, Miss Piggy takes the Sharon Stone role.

Hunger Games keep president Snow
— Heather M (@sweetgeekmomma) July 16, 2018
Forgetting Sarah Marshall, keep Kristen Bell, but make the puppets humans on strings.

What movie would you want to add Muppets to?
