SAUSAGE PARTY

R rated

The title is a warning. A sausage party is another term for an orgy and this film has one. I have rarely seen a more vulgar film. If this wasn’t a cartoon it would be considered pornography.

A sausage strives to discover the truth about his existence. All the items in a grocery store think once they are purchased by “gods” they are going to the “Great Beyond” and describe it like Heaven. When a jar of Honey Mustard is returned and tries to tell them the truth, the sausage starts to question the “Great Beyond.”

“Sausage Party” screenplay was written by Seth Rogen, Kyle Hunter, Evan Goldberg, and Ariel Shaffir based on a story by Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, and Evan Goldberg.

The screenplay feels like a bunch of immature teen-age boys got drunk or high and came up with the story then got high or drunk again and wrote the script.

To be truthful, there were some funny lines and gags but it was so gross that I can’t believe that any studio would seriously distribute this film.

Do not let your teens see this. It should have had an X rating instead of an R rating. The audience I saw this with laughed a lot but older people I talked with were disgusted.

Of course, it is a Seth Rogen film and he doesn’t seem to do anything without foul language and sex; and, he thinks it’s funny and he makes tons of money doing it, but I am sure his parents are mortified when they go to see his films, if they go to see his films.

I am sure the millennial audience will find this hilarious but the over 50 crowd will hate it!
