I saw this freakin' movie like four or five years ago. It was ok as far as puppet fare goes. But it got such a hype from friends of mine that I was expecting the absolute most hilarious, sickening movie of all time. I do remember this: the next day I missed the bus to return the flick and I smacked the tape on my noggin. I f%ckin' cracked that b***h. Oh well. If I saw it now I would probably apreciate it so much more. Definately a sick sick film and worthy of a screening.

Addition:  Dead Alive Production released the current DVD of this.  Wait for Anchor Bay to do it right!  Read here - - that the new version will be released before the year is out!  :)  Man I can't wait!!

What can I say othere then wow!  The muppets on Crack with a twinge of a bag porno and rambo mixed all in with STDs.  Man I love the movie.  Saw it with friends on a whim once cause we were bored.   Its bad enough that once we were done with the movie, we actually sat back and watched it again, just to get drunk the next time and try to figure out who was what in there.  

anyway, the Plot was decent and the way it ran was good.  Granted, White powder that makes you look like you just inhaled some flesh eating virus, ewww.  After all, where else would you take something that would make even Jim henson turn in his grave for the thought they use puppets that look like muppets some.  

Aahh, the joys of sarcasm,  the finers points of life.  eh, well..  my 2 bits are down,  see everyone en Infernam.

I love this movie. I managed to see it at my art college back in the summer of 1995. I love every bit of it except the part when barry gets killd, 'cause he was my favorite character.

we first saw this about ten years ago, and found it f**ked up but funny, best moments were "u may be wobert to your friends..." and the rabbit coming out of the carrot and going whoopee before vomiting everywhere.
This movie needs to be seen by all.

The Muppets on Acid, Crack, heroin, everything.  This movie is one of those movies that you should see just once during your life.  I've had a copy for years and just recently i found this website so i decided to post a message.  I have had like 50 people flock to me because they want to see this movie and as thye watch it they get both grossed out and laugh hysterically.  I have to say that the movie rocks and it was just recently that i realized that it was a Peter Jackson movie which makes it even better.   I can say that i am glad that i came across a copy of it.  It is a cult classic film now in my book.

I didn't know what to make of the movie the first time I saw it.  It was like witnessing a murder.  You don't want to look at it but you can't look away.  So I had to get the tape and loan it out to everyone I know... so that they could loan it out to everyone they know!  A decade later and I still don't know what to make of it...  But the "Things I Learned From This Movie" on the previous page had me literally rolling!  Can you name another film where you see a puppet singing about the pleasures of sodomy?  I thought not.

When I first saw this film, at an all-night festival, a friend of mine walked out because he found the business with the rabbit offensive, claiming it was making a joke of AIDS.
I was surprised, as it hadn't for a moment occurred to me that the bunny was supposed to have AIDS. It's interesting that nobody here seems to think this either; at any rate nobody's mentioned it. Does anyone out there think it's about AIDS?
Another thing: how can a man who makes wonderfully incorrect and subversive films like this, and other of Jackson's early work, come up with the monumentally pretentious and solemn Lord of the Rings crap - the most overpraised books of the Twentieth Century made into what will probably remain among the most overpraised films of the Twenty-First?
End of rant.

I've recently discovered a video store near my current place of employment that features a great "camp and cult" section, and this was one of the first things I checked out. Mostly I can't think of anything not already said in the review or in other comments, but I do have two things to bring up:

1. As for the STD-stricken rabbit, AIDS is probably what most people think of when they hear "the big one", but in what I guess is a rare show of taste, the disease is never specified, so it could be a fatal case of hepatitis c or something.

2. The version I saw was the one distributed by Dead Alive, and I can attest to the crappy video quality, which is a shame; ant-eaters melting from snorting borax and flies digging into rabbit feces with a spoon deserve to be seen in full digital quality. However, almost making up for this were the previews for other dvd's put out by the company: Seemingly every other release of theirs is low-budget direct-to-video horror shot on camcorders, and each preview featured the same incredibly laconic narrator. There's just something about lurid copy about "blood-curdling terror" and the like being read by a guy who sounds like someone just woke him up seconds beforehand.

   I AM a diehard LOTR fan and I STILL think this is damn funny! peter Jackson is a genius! (I loved Heavenly creatures too!) My only complaint, a minor one is that the "nice" characters are boooooooring. BTW, am I the only person who vaguely remembers a little kids tv show called "Sebastian the Fox"?

A movie I believe Peter Jackson himself is embarassed by. even on the night when 'Return of the King' racked up over 11 oscars; he personally thanked the academy for overlooking 'Meet the Feebles'.
Well said Jackson. Now get back to work on the 'Halo' movie!

I actually felt filthy after watching this movie. Deeply filthy.

I remember watching this gem way back in the days in Art School and it became a monthly staple for our little group - good times...

BTW, anybody know if there is any proper DVD version available that is worth seeking out?
(proper as in "better video and audio than a cheap VHS copy"....)
