Oscar-winning director Peter Jackson implores you to meet his odd Muppet look-alikes, who star in a variety show and revel in offscreen drama. Bletch, the program’s cigar-chewing, walrus producer, could get his big break if they pull good ratings. But with an inept, unnerved fox as director, a rabbit with a burning case of herpes as host and the show’s hippo ex-star packing heat, Bletch has his work cut out. –Netflix

Watching this film was a very uncomfortable experience. It's not that it was overly vulgar or perverted, it was more of the overall feeling it gave. Obnoxious, cartoon-like puppets kind of disgust me to begin with, so watching them have sex and eat feces was quite awful. Salò was much easier to digest than Meet the Feebles.
Not as crazy shocking as most claim to be, Jackson's Feebles is an adequate, muppets gone wild romp. Jackson's direction is much better than expected for this sort of thing. The shock value of the film seems rather tame and the film probably worked better before the South Park/Avenue Q era. Jackson focuses too much on the Muppets nasty acts, rather than his knack for set pieces and slapstick(we do get a bit of both).
