Sausage Party seems like a fake movie that would show up as a single joke in a real movie. Even having seen it and confirming that it is a real feature film in theaters I still kinda feel like it’s a fake movie. I mean, this is a super raunchy movie about talking food and other inanimate objects, it’s just not the kind of movie we get everyday.

Even having seen it and confirming that it is a real feature film in theaters I still kinda feel like it’s a fake movie. I mean, this is a super raunchy movie about talking food and other inanimate objects, it’s just not the kind of movie we get everyday.

But the big thing about Sausage Party is that it’s a work of true artistic vision. Compared to other big Hollywood movies that have come out recently (Ghostbusters, Suicide Squad, Star Trek Beyond, Jason Bourne [At least the half I was awake for.]) it’s a breath of fresh air frankly. This is a movie that has a very specific idea of what it wants to accomplish and it executes on that idea to the fullest extent.

I mean this is a movie about talking food that’s really a parody movie about religion where humans get murdered. With really dumb food puns. And then there’s the orgy.

It’s worth noting that Sausage Party has a very long and messy production history; including allegations of unpaid overtime for animators; 36 of the 83 animators who worked on the movie are not in the films credits.

This is still a movie with 4 credited screenwriters, 2 directors and made with a huge team of animators behind it, but it also is a movie that never undercuts its own characters or ideas. It just has a cohesiveness to it; it knows what it is and follows through. This movie goes all the way with its dumb idea, it does not hold back at all. It’s also just a testament to the fact that Seth Rogen can make whatever the fuck he wants at this point.

It’s also just funny, consistently. That’s good too. That would pretty much make up for any flaws anyway. So yeah, Sausage Party is a good movie. I laughed. I kinda still don’t believe this is a real movie that exists.
