Hello, fellow moviegoers!
Sausage Party is an R-rated animated film brought to us by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Jonah Hill. When they announced that the team behind This is the End, Superbad, and Pineapple Express were making an animated film, many fans were immediately excited. The story follows food from a supermarket that believes that humans are gods who come and take them to heaven. When one sausage discovers that they are really to be eaten, he strives to warn everyone about the terrible truth. So is Sausage Party any good?
To be 100% honest, I have no idea what I think of Sausage Party. I'm so torn over this movie as a whole. This entire film is a matter of interpretation. Some people are really going to love it, some people will...not. Sausage Party reminds me of some really weird movie that should exist only in the darkest corner of the Internet. There were points where it reminded me of the Youtube-sensation Don't Hug Me I'm Scared. You never really quite understand this movie fully.
If the only job a comedy has is to make the audience laugh, then this film passed in spades. Myself along with the entire theater I was in was laughing hysterically throughout the movie. However, I'm not sure if I was laughing because what was happening was funny or if I was just so shocked by it that I didn't know what to do. There were so many scenes in this film that you cannot believe they got away with.
Sausage Party is, by far, the raunchiest movie I've ever seen. It's as if it saw the line between being funny and making the audience uncomfortable, then treated it as the starting line for the 400 Meter Dash at the Olympics. Surprisingly enough, this film has a lot to say about the different goings on in the world right now. It has themes about war, racism, religion, and so many other things. Granted, sometimes it could have been a bit more subtle, but at least they tried to add more layers to this movie.
The voice cast assembled for this movie is fantastic. It features the likes of Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Edward Norton, Michael Cera, James Franco, Bill Hader, Paul Rudd, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson. They all did really good jobs and they definitely made the film more interesting.
The animation in the film reminded of something that you'd see on a kid's animated show, not in a Hollywood produced film. Maybe they did that on purpose to make it seem more innocent than it is, but that doesn't excuse that it wasn't done very well.
Sausage Party is definitely not a movie for everybody. In fact, I would go as far to say that there is a very small audience that will enjoy the movie. It's the raunchiest film I've ever seen, and you will be offended by the movie at some point. The cast was great, the animation was mediocre, and it actually tried to add a little bit of depth at times. If you're really into Seth Rogen and his raunchy humor, you're going to love Sausage Party. If not, I would say you should probably skip this one.
Because this film is so based upon your interpretation, I don't think I can accurately give it a score. So, I'm not going to give it a set score. I'll say Sausage Party falls somewhere between a 3/10 and a 7/10 and it all depends on how you look at it.
