|It's happened before, and it's about to happen again|
In a beautiful grocery market, the aisles are full of shelves that have thousands of cognizant foods that are waiting to be picked for eternity by the gods (customers) that come strolling through with their carts. Seth Rogen (Paul) is part of a pack of hot dogs and is in love with a bun just across the way. When fate steps in and has a god grabbing his pack and hers together, they make plans for a glorious link once they've reached their destination. All seems to be going to plan until an eye covered potato is the first who's subjected to the horrifying truth; That they are all food for the gods! What comes next is a series of bloodless carnage (unless you count Mrs. Jelly) strewn with profanities. There's even a flour-clouded reenactment of Saving Private Ryan that will make your skin crawl! Or leave you laughing hysterically. Rogen and company (a collection of many other foods and even a roll of toilet paper) realize that they must fight back and save their fellow grubbage before they're eaten or their expiration dates arrive, whichever comes first. Take the plot of Toy Story, make the characters into food items, and slap on an R-rating; That's what Sausage Party is.
My Prediction- This movie looks funnier than shit. It's about time that we got an explicit animated film that doesn't pander to perverts and pedo's (hentai and innuendo filled animes). (country accent) This is for every red-blooded American that loves a good wiener joke (end accent). With a large cast of mainly comedians, this should be good. I only hope that it doesn't run out of steam by the third act and the novelty wears off. Sausage Party will not be a Piece Of Shit. Hopefully, they won't put a pair of legs on that as well. What am I saying? That would be funny too.
Mike's Take -
Sausage Party. The name says it all. This is an animated film that most of Hollywood's studios passed on because it was too raunchy. The trailers make this film look really good, even with the animation being average looking. Seth Rogen seems to make movies that he wants to watch and if others happen to like it, it's a bonus. In this day and age of movies that basically cut out character development for bigger action sequences and Hollywood studio executive tampering to "make the film better because they have a great idea, R-rated" it will be interesting to see what Seth and company can do with an R-rated animated movie.
As far as this movie goes, it's nothing new and exciting. The credits list 5 different writers for the screenplay and that's a red flag to me, but it should be a fun time. Not A Piece Of Shit.
