Fan favorite Melissa McCarthy of Gilmore Girls and Mike & Molly fame joined the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show today to talk about her new project!

Melissa's new movie, The Happytime Murders, hits theaters this weekend and she plays the lead role of Detective Connie Edwards. IMDB describes the movie briefly as:

When the puppet cast of an '80s children's TV show begin to get murdered one by one, a disgraced LAPD detective-turned-private eye puppet takes on the case.

That detective just happens to be McCarthy and she stars alongside Elizabeth Banks, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale and more!

Hear what Melissa has to say about her new project and why this movie with puppets is NOT suitable for kids!

Check out the trailer for The Happytime Murders and make plans to check it out in theaters this weekend!
