A typical day at the theatre: With the premiere of the Feebles Variety Show only 12 hours away, everything seems to be going wrong, especially with the show's star Heidi the hippo having her umpteenth nervous breakdown that results in the umpteenth eating attack. Despite all of her diva behaviour though Heidi has all reason in the world for a breakdown, since her sleazeball boyfriend, the show's producer Bletch, is cheating on her with Samantha the cat, her chief rival among the chorus girls.

Just 12 hours before the show, Robin the hedgehog enters the scene, to start work as an extra. He soon falls in love with Lucille the poodle, but gets off on the wrong foot with the show's director and is made the assistant of the show's drug-addict knifethrower, which almost costs him his life.

In the meantime, Lucille has caught the eye of production assistant Trevor the rat, who also produces porn on the side - and now he wants to cast her in one of his films, even if that means to drug her first. Eventually, Robert walks in on Trevor shagging drugged Lucille, and not knowing the truth behind this, this leaves him heartbroken.

Bletch and his sidekick Trevor are also big on drugrunning - after all, with quite so many theater performers, they have got the perfect list of customers pretty much cut out for them. Their last deal however almost cost them their lives when they had to realize there were seamonsters among their suppliers. However, they make it back just in time to insult Heidi beyond reconciliation just before the show starts, so they have to do it without her. However, after a catastrophic opening with the host Harry the rabbit vomiting live on stage, and an abysmal song-and-dance number the director of the show tried to save the thing, Heidi appears on stage after all - packing a machinegun and shooting everyone in sight.

So yes, it ends with enormous puppet splatter, but in the finale, Robert proves himself a hero, saves Lucille's life and asks her to marry him, while all the baddies get their just desserts.

 

As much as I hate to describe something as being something else "on speed", Meet the Feebles is pretty much The Muppet Show on speed, meaning it's crude and rude, features sex and violence, blood and porn, foul language and drug abuse, and whatever else you've got, essentially, all in a Muppets-like framework of a backstage drama spoof featuring puppets, interrupted by musical numbers. And when it comes to crude and rude jokes and hilariously over-the-top gore, Meet the Feebles is good fun - but it's not a great film.

Basically, Meet the Feebles is just The Muppet Show on speed, and very little beyond that. True, it's an enjoyably disrespectful hommage to the beloved TV show, but it more or less lacks original ideas of its own, as well as those ingeniously surrealist skits that made The Muppets so endearing to viewers of all ages.

Still, Meet the Feebles is quite some fun to watch and should work particularly well as a party movie, just don't expect some sort of masterpiece ...
