Sausage Party Review: A New Kind of "Food Porn"



A Point Grey production "Sausage Party"; Columbia Pictures and Annapurna Pictures

If you have ever seen a Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg film, then you know they have created some of the world's most outrageous, inventive, and hilarious comedies – from Superbad, Pineapple Express, This Is the End and The Interview. Now, they have taken it one step further by partnering with Columbia Pictures and Annapurna Pictures by creating the world’s first R-rated CG animated comedy, Sausage Party. Sausage Party is about a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens when they're chosen to leave the grocery store.

“There’s an old tradition in animated films – especially the CG ones – about the secret life of the things around us,” says Goldberg. “We’ve seen cars, we’ve seen toys… we love all of those movies. And eventually we realized there’s an extremely comedic version of it in the secret life of food.”

Sausage Party cleverly takes on racism, prejudice, violence and religion in a surprisingly intelligent fashion because it all comes from animated food.

The film takes place at Shopwell's supermarket where food wakes up every morning and sing a song about their hopes of the gods (humans) choosing them to take to the "Great Beyond" (outside of the supermarket) where they believe "nothing bad will ever happen." Frank (Seth Rogan), is a sausage (really a hot dog) who awaits the moment when he can finally be inside his girlfriend Brenda Bun (Kristen Wiig), a hot dog bun, once they are together in the Great Beyond. After a series of unfortunate events, Frank learns from a group of non-perishables that the Great Beyond is a bunch of bologna. Now, this sausage is forced to lead a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens when they become chosen to leave the grocery store. The film features the vocal talents of a who’s who of today’s comedy stars – Michael Cera, James Franco, Salma Hayek, Jonah Hill, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Danny McBride, Edward Norton, Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Kristen Wiig.

Parents, although this movie is animated, we advise for you to not take your children to see this insanely bawdy, animated film.

The last few minutes of the film ended on a strange note, as viewers were left with dropped jaws, spinning heads and bright eyes during a disturbing 10-minute climax that redefined the phrase "food porn".

The best way to sum up this movie in a nutshell is to quote the character,Twink (the twinkie, voiced by Scott Underwood) who said , "Once you see it, it will mess you up for life."

Sausage Party has been rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for strong crude sexual content, pervasive language, and drug use. The film will be released in theaters nationwide on August 12, 2016.

Warning: Video contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children)
