    Here is a bit of interesting news about this movie.

    The company behind "Sesame Street" is suing the makers of Melissa McCarthy's upcoming raunchy comedy, "The Happytime Murders," for referencing the popular kids show in its marketing campaign.

    The R-rated film follows "two clashing detectives" -- Melissa McCarthy and her partner, a puppet named Phil Phillips -- in Los Angeles as they work together "to solve the brutal murders of the former cast of a beloved classic puppet television show," according to its website.

    But it's not the film's use of profane puppets that "Sesame Street" is upset about. It's the tagline used in the film's marketing campaign -- "No Sesame. All Street."

    Yeah all they need to do is to get rid of the No Sesame in their Ads and they'll be fine. Just saw the Trailer and damn I'm going to see this night one, the first Scene and last Scene had me dying.
