An earlier effort from the director of "Heavenly Creatures," this puppet film is the Muppets by way of the Marquis de Sade. A motley crew of puppets about to go on-air for a major TV special are hiding all manner of peccadilloes. Once you get past the X-rated puppet concept, there's not much to "Meet the Feebles." It skewers showbiz cliches the innocent neophyte, the temperamental diva, the screwed-up headliner but all to little end. Directed by Peter Jackson. Written by Danny Mulheron, Frances Walsh, Stephen Sinclair and Peter Jackson. Produced by Jim Booth and Peter Jackson. A Greycat release. Satire. Unrated. Running time: 97 min.
