Meet The Feebles - Movie Reviews and Movie Ratings | TV Guide
The Feebles are a troupe of sleazy show business types trying to mount a song-and-dance show they hope will launch them on the road to TV fame and fortune. But they're not human: Naturally, in this simultaneous parody of "The Muppets" television series and the backstage dramas of yore, everything that can go wrong, does.
The movie opens as the randy host, Harry the Hare, discovers that he has a loathsome sexually transmitted disease could it be AIDS?
The stage manager is a worm. Wynyard the frog--who does a knife-throwing act--has Vietnam flashbacks. Sandy the chicken has filed a paternity suit against Sid the juggling elephant, who swears the child isn't his.
The show's director, Sebastian the Fox, is a frustrated performer and eventually gets to do his big number, a ditty called "Sodomy" "You might think it odd o' me The show's really big star, Heidi the hippo, is smarting from her romantic betrayal by disgusting producer Bletch the walrus, who's taken up with a purring Siamese pussy named Samantha.

Meet the Feebles | Reelviews Movie Reviews
To be frank, this is a pretty funny movie, but it relies on shock value almost exclusively for its punchlines. But the shock value is usually high enough to get away with this one of the "milder" cases of shock value is a frog that has PTSD from being in Vietnam and is now addicted to every barbiturate known to man, this was the mildest gag I could think of in the whole film, it only gets worse from there.
It's a fun experience. I don't recommend watching it by yourself though.
Or with your parents around. Jacob Ethington Super Reviewer I was just looking through some bizarre movies on the list of today, and then one caught my eye.
- Meet The Feebles Review
If you've seen my Eraserhead review, or my other reviews you'll notice that I like bizarre movies. After reading about this movie, I took an hour out of my day to watch it.
I've never seen anything like or even similar to this. The plot is, well, very flexible.
Absolutely ever puppet you see has a disturbing, bizarre, or traumatizing back-story. This means that, technically, there ARE no minor characters. These back-stories range from being in the Mafia, to having a drug addiction, to even fighting the war in Vietnam. The movie is very interesting, and the only boring part I'd say would be the first 15 minutes, were you're getting to know most of the characters.
