Even though I enjoy any kind of movie, I would still say that Sausage Party is not the type of movie I’d usually go see in theatres. I’m partial to horror films, thrillers, that kind of thing. But something about Sausage Party just told me to do it and thus, I did. And I went with my mother. Luckily, my mom is not a prude because if that were the case, it would have been a suuuuper awkward hour and a half of my life.
It was… it was probably the number one most raunchy film I’ve ever seen. That’s right, even raunchier than the atrocity that is Good Luck Chuck. The difference between the two is that Sausage Party was actually funny (sorry, not sorry, Dane). I really don’t know what I was going into the movie expecting. I had seen the trailer and yet I was not fully prepared. I don’t know if you can ever actually be prepared for food orgies.
It was a smorgasbord of Seth Rogen (and clan’s) best, most racist, most sexual jokes, directed by Greg Tiernan, previously known for his work on Thomas & Friends (yeah, that’s what I said…) and Conrad Vernon, previously known for Shrek and sequels, Madagascar and sequels, Bee Movie, Flushed Away, and probably some other stuff. The jokes were hilarious and absolutely, truly disgusting at times. I think they literally covered every single food joke ever uttered.
The plot made sense (in a disturbing, cartoonish, pornographic sort of way), the animation was on point, and it was a lot of fun. Certainly not for the poised, and definitely not for children (although there were a few in my theatre…), but absolutely worth watching. I don’t know if I’d pay to see it in theatres again, but I would give it a rewatch while kicking back with some friends and some drinks!
