Rated: R (For strong crude sexual content, pervasive language, and drug use)
In 1995, a little studio called Pixar wondered what it would be like if toys were alive. This resulted in the much loved classic, “Toy Story,” which was a joyful experience that families still enjoy to this day. In contrast, when Seth Rogan thought about what it would be like if food was alive, he realized it would be terrifying. After all, the whole point of food is to be bought and consumed by humans. “Sausage Party” thus aims to be the anti-Pixar movie, where food comes alive, long to be taken to the great beyond, and sing an Alan Menkin song that sounds like an R-rated version of “Be Our Guest.” They also swear, make numerous sexual references, and have an obsession with “inserting” with one another. Needless to say, “Sausage Party” is highly offensive and graphic. It is also very funny at times and even oddly clever during other times.
Parents, there is strong language throughout, drug references, sexual content, violence, and a climax that is just...there are no words for it really. Recommended for ages 18 and up.
