Sausage Party Movie Review:

Think Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs with all the food high on weed (or should I say with high sex drives?), that’s basically the synopsis of this film. I was invited to a real sausage party (yes, with real hotdog and bun with a bottle of beer) by Sony Pictures Singapore and they successfully made me feel like a monster “God” halfway through the film. Yes, I lost my appetite for the poor hotdog which was drenched in caramelised onions. No wonder they gave us beer, I think numbing ourselves and thinking this is all a nightmare will be a good thing.
Sausage Party Hotdogs and BunsThe sex talk was hilarious initially. I spent quite some time with my jaw down as it was pretty ingenious to be drawing parallels between food and human, sex and food through the use of an enclosed world of a supermarket and anthropomorphic groceries. But I’m not exactly a fan of profanity and it was excessively used here, resulting in jokes sounding weird halfway through the film. If you are trying to picture it, just imagine listening to a conversation within a group of people high on drugs.

949846 - SAUSAGE PARTYI know comedy is pretty subjective. There were several interesting moments – when the Honey Mustard returned to the super mart to share the horror of “The Great Beyond” followed by the suicide and collision; the dumpster adventure as well as the druggie’s hallucination with the groceries. Other than that, it’s really a mess. Sausage Party is really a “crazy party” film just for laughter, definitely not suitable for kids (it’s R21) so don’t be expecting a great tear-jerking morale.

What didn’t work for me might just work perfectly for the rest, so go catch it if you are in need of some tickles.

Do You Know?

pixar-easter-eggs-in-sausage-party-more-to-ruin-childhood-memoriesAs the first animated film written by Seth Rogen, he developed the idea of the film in 2007. It was based on something he and Jonah Hill would joke around about. Seth Rogen described this film as a dark take on Disney and Pixar films. While most Pixar and other animated movies cost about $100 million to make, Sausage Party only cost under $20 million to make.

949846 - SAUSAGE PARTYSausage Party has been in the works since July 23, 2010. Because of the dark nature of the story, Seth Rogen worked for eight years to get it picked up by film studios. Sausage Party was originally going to be released the summer of 2015. This was changed due to the fact that since no studio had picked it up, the animation process was delayed.

LavashThe MPAA didn’t know what to do with this film, as it’s an unprecedented area. According to Seth Rogen, the MPAA requested the film to remove hair from Lavash’s genitals in order to keep its R rating. It is the first CGI-animated film to be rated R by the MPAA.

Sausage-Party-TwinkieThe names “Twinkie” and “Tea Bag” already have sexual connotations. A Twink is a young gay man without a lot of body hair, while “teabagging” refers to oral stimulation of the scrotum. Seth Rogen’s character is Frank, “Frank” is also a slang term referring to the male genital.

Director Greg TiernanDirector Greg Tiernan, before this movie, had only ever directed Thomas & Friends movies, videos and TV shows.

  1. It’s cool to watch the voice over of the characters. The sausage looks so cute. I wonder if the lines will also get me laughing. 🙂 Not sure if this is something I can relate to

  2. The animated characters are so cute-looking. At first glance, I definitely didn`t expect this to be R-18. The synopsis makes me laugh. I think it would be very entertaining at the same time thought-provoking to know the perspective of foods. Hehe. However, I wish the movie was simply about the quest of foods finding their identity and how they got to the grocery stores. It would be really fun to watch such movie with friends and family.

  3. I was initially excited when I scrolled through my feed and saw the trailer thinking it would be an awesome animated film about food, well, it is about food but completely not what I had in mind! I think it’s going to be a hit with a certain group of people and not really everybody.

  4. I Love Paars by: Lee

    I thought we can watch this film with my 5 yr oldnkid but when I checked the movie house rhisnis R18. Didnt realized that this film is a littlenkinky somehow, lol
    Maybe I can watch this alone? Haha

  5. I haven’t seen this movie yet. And I don’t think this is still available in the cinemas here. But I really would love to. Cool movie to watch with friends.

  6. I’ve seen this featured in different platforms. Was about to watch it one time but was interrupted. Maybe, this is a sign, I should watch this. 3.25/5 not that bad. And this is rated R. 🙂

  7. R-21!!! In our country, it was a more generous R-18. Funny at parts, but not really my cup of tea, hence I rated it lower. I will post my own review in a future thread.

  8. That was a low rating for something good. But I have to agree, it is kind of a weird story and I love weird story, but this didn’t appealed to me. It was a nice review.
