Ok I obviously know I’m a late bloomer at reviewing this film as everyone around me in the film critic world seems to have nothing better to do but sit on their ass and watch films while people like myself work for for a living but that’s besides the point and better late then never…

‘Sausage Party’ was directed by Greg Teirnan and Conrad Vernon and in the wake of R-Rated madness since I believe Hell and Back onto Marvel’s Deadpool and the like set out to create one of the most controversial Adult animated comedy films turning it into one of the most loudest unfunny films of the decade.   If you really have to swear every other sentence in a comedy moment it really just says your a poty mouth and have no respect for others since you can’t find a way to communicate with the English language as consistent swearing is a virtual pet peeve of mine that shows low brain capacity in the story line scripting but here goes nothing…

Life is simple in a local shopping mart, when the shop closes the food in the mart come alive.  As the film begins we are introduced to a package of buns and a package of hotdogs.  Every morning the all food products sing a song of a dream of getting to the “Great Beyond”.

Well as we find out Frank (Seth Rogen) Seems to be lead Hotdog in his package and his buddy Barry (Michael Cera) a somewhat deformed Hot Dog both dream of this great beyond as Frank and Brenda, a hot dog bun and lead lady seemingly of her package also dream of going together into this so called ‘Great Beyond’… well… that day comes..,

Both Hot dog and bun packages are chosen together by a customer but on their way out the door a jar of Honey Mustard comes back returned… with stories of that which the great beyond is just a myth, causing a commotion where Frank and Brenda get Seperated from their packages and fall from the cart entirely.

When this happens a desposable deuch gets angry and vows vengeance while Frank and Brenda end up going on a journey in the mall meeting up with a Bagel,  A humus and eventially a lesbian taco… (Salma Hayek) meanwhile…

Barry has gone out to the great beyond and to the home of the customer and watches as Carl and his other hotdog package buds are murdered before his eyes and barely escapes… meets up with a shopper of the place he’d come with whom is a druggy and a fat slob.

Only while sniffing crack is this human able to understand everything Barry’s and the injured food lying in the dudes place are saying, including a chewed up piece of gum that speaks like Stephen Hawkins.

The climax of the film is not the plan to have a food fight to fight back with the humans even though it’s a little fun to see but is in fact in the orgy that is afterwards which was the whole reason why this film was even talked about.

Like I said in the beginning I wonder if they went too far with the senseless swearing and the insulation of making fun of a man that is a genius in his own way Stephen Hawkins.

Now I have to admit that I did laugh in bits and can see how it kinda sort could have been a cute movie but as it has some sicklish perversion bits added you can see that Seth Rogen and Crew have their influence in the animation as some of the humor seems unscripted and adlibed which is possibly why it works to a somewhat degree.  Also I too feel that Toy Story influenced this mad fiasco into being  but a hell of a lot more dirtier.

The other thing of not I absolutely believe the way they marketed this films trailer in some of the theaters was bad for the film makers as apparently young children were allowed to see the trailer before actual animated events so I feel it could have been marketed way better they should have known better.

Did I enjoy this film? I guess ultimately I did but there is so much fucked up about this film…
