Storyline

The products at Shopwell's Grocery Store are made to believe a code that helps them live happy lives until it's time for them to leave the comfort of the supermarket and head for the great beyond. However, after a botched trip to the great beyond leaves one sausage named Frank and his companion Bun stranded, Frank goes to great lengths (pun intended) to return to his package and make another trip to the great beyond. But as Frank's journey takes him from one end of the supermarket to the other, Frank's quest to discover the truth about his existence as a sausage turns incredibly dark. Can he expose the truth to the rest of the supermarket and get his fellow products to rebel against their human masters? Written by halo1k

Trivia

If one pays close attention the film seems to go in a 'cycle'. For example Darren is seen opening the store to customers twice and is seen in a running gag pushing the waste bins. Likewise a corn on the cob starts the infamous 'Great Beyond' film twice while the rest of the foods join in when it is their cue such as 'Hitler' singing they will 'exterminate the juice'. This is a parody of the Bill Murray film Groundhog Day where Bill Murray's character was locked in a time loop, in which the characters do the same routine again and again. See more »

Carl: Shit, Frank! We can't miss the song!
[to Barry]
Carl: Barry, wake up!
Barry: What? I'm up, I'm up!
Frank: This song is such an awesome way to start every morning.
Carl: It's just a super nice way of showing the gods how much we appreciate everything they'll do for us, once they take us out those doors to the Great Beyond.

Crazy Credits

On the receipt during the end credits, Seth Rogen's name appears next to 4.20. A reference to cannabis. See more »

Alternate Versions

On FX's TV broadcasts, all the swear words are censored just like a censored bleep. For example, Darren says "Bye-bye, sausages" instead of "F*** you, weenies" when he throws a package of sausages into a garbage can. However, in the Spanish dubbed version via SAP, nearly all the swear words (in Spanish) are retained. See more »

Weird, obscene and just plain out offensive but quite enjoyable to watch.
17 September 2016 | by gxgabzSee all my reviews

Okay, to start this off: this movie is definitely NOT for kids. It definitely deserves its R-rating. Sausage Party is one of those movies that will make you say: what the hell am I watching?

To be frank(see what I did there?), this movie fulfilled every bit of expectation I had, no more and no less in its "well, I think I've seen enough" factor. What I mean by that, is that this is the most vulgar and xenophobic animated movie I've ever seen but in a good way. As obnoxious as this movie is, I can't help but giggle half the time when I'm watching it, even though how disgusting and indecent some of the scenes are, especially at the end. And mostly because of that, I will never see food the same way ever again(the animation is pretty good though).

Maybe my only true complaint about this movie was the ending, since it seems it was just tacked in there "just because" but to be fair, the movie was already weird as it is. So yeah, the ending for me felt kinda random and I feel that it should've ended in that particular scene before it but overall, I don't think it won't affect what most people thought about this film. Though I expect that this movie will offend a lot of people but to hell with that! let your immature side take over for a while and enjoy this film about food getting it on and on and on..... and on.

If you like humor that is both weird and outrageously crass but still remotely funny, then look no further since Sausage Party is the movie for you.
