Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (11)
Seth Rogen described this film as a dark take on Disney films, saying, "People like to project their emotions onto the things around them: their toys, their cars, their pets . . . So we thought, 'What would it be like if our food had feelings?' We very quickly realized that it would be fucked up."

Seth Rogen developed the idea of the film in 2007. It was based on something he and Jonah Hill would joke around about. While promoting Superbad (2007) and Knocked Up (2007), people would ask Rogen what his next project will be, in which he jokingly replied, "It's called 'Sausage Party.'"

According to writer Seth Rogen, in order to get the movie its desired R rating (and not a commercially undesirable NC-17 rating), the directors purposely submitted a version with several raunchy scenes that they expected the MPAA to take issue with. This is quite common practice, because such scenes often draw the attention from the MPAA, and allow other, comparatively less offensive scenes to pass almost unnoticed. However, to their surprise, the MPAA only insisted that hair be removed from Lavash's genitals in order to keep its R rating rather than NC-17.

Due to the graphic content, the MPAA did not know what to do with this film. Seth Rogen made an argument to alleviate the trade association's confusion, whose standpoint was, "It's an unprecedented area." Rogen replied, "Well is it a dick if it's food?"

The license plate on Druggie's car is A113, which is an Easter Egg that Disney and Pixar hide in all of their feature films. This movie, the first CGI-animated movie to receive an R-rating by the MPAA since Terkel in Trouble (2004), is neither a Disney nor a Pixar film (it is made by Sony Pictures Animation, Annapurna Pictures, Point Grey Pictures, and Nitrogen Studios Canada, and released by Columbia Pictures).

Perhaps due to the intention of making this R-rated comedy as cheaply as possible, working conditions for the animators were said to be very bad. According to anonymous sources who worked on the film, the studio forced them to work unpaid overtime, working days and weekends, if they wanted to keep their job, and then refused to provide food for those who complied. A few animators claimed that their reputations were threatened when they left, and the studio purposely did not include a lot of people in the final credits. After a while, so many animators left that the studio was forced to hire recently graduated students to fill their places. The exodus was only stopped when the production company stepped in, and provided food and paid overtime. The studio denied all allegations.

Once physical production did get started, co-director Greg Tiernan frequently abused the animation staff forcing them to work overtime 7 days a week without extra pay due to the films small budget and threatened to backlist them and remove their names from the credits if they stood up to him (only half of the artists whose work is in the final film show up at the end) because there's no animation union in Vancouver, where Nitrogen Studios is located, the artists could only either comply or risk never working in the business again.

A lot of things were shuffled around, altered, or removed altogether between the original script and the finished movie, including the following * instead of opening with Frank and the other sausages preparing to sing the film's theme song, the story begins with a corncob and a mushroom arguing over who will be chosen by the gods. Furthermore, the lyrics for the "Great Beyond" in the original script are very different than the ones in the finished version. * Barry was apparently supposed to be the main character of the story instead of Frank, in the original script there was a mural with a picture of Barry on it and it said he's supposed to be the chosen one. * The food massacre happens much earlier in the original script. *The song "The End" by The Doors was supposed to play during the scene where Honey Mustard commits suicide * There was a scene where Douche is fighting off a group of rats when he encounters a piece of cheese stuck in a mousetrap taking advantage of this, he sacrifices the cheese to the rats and becomes their leader in the process. * the orgy scene happens before the climax in the original script, and it was supposedly much longer and more graphic than in the finished movie. Also it was mostly restricted to the main gang instead of the entire store. * instead of ending with the foods going through the portal that Gum built into the real world to take on their real creators, the original script concludes with the foods leaving the store after the climatic battle as they set out into the outside world ending the story with a Fade to White. *Darren wasn't going to be controlled by Douche during the film's climax this was probably added into to coincide with an earlier film Paul Rudd was in. *Vash was intended to die near the end of the film in a heroic sacrifice due to the fact that he had reached his expiration date. However this was changed so that he instead becomes the boyfriend of Sammy Bagel Jr. this was most likely due to the fact that expiration isn't shown to be fatal in itself to foods and they only die when Darren throws them out.

The Green Band trailer removes most of the profanity from the Red Band trailer. For instance, Carl's line is redubbed with him saying "They're eating children! THEY'RE JUST CHILDREN!" Additionally, the toilet paper's line of him saying "You don't want to fucking know" is redubbed with him saying "You don't want to freaking know." Brenda, attacking the human woman in the trailer, had her "Stay away from my sausage, you skank" line redubbed with her saying "psycho" instead of "skank". Nearly a minute's worth of film has been cut out for its Latin American release. The food orgy in particular suffered the most edits, with some of the more questionable moments removed from it. Time will tell whether these edits will be carried over to the home video release in that region.

The orgy scene was planned to be eight minutes long, but writers Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen encouraged the animators to be as creative as possible. The full sequence that they came up with was an astounding twelve minutes long, and featured so much graphic debauchery that it almost shocked Rogen and Goldberg. Needless to say, the scene had to be heavily revised to be "consumable". The flash frames by the end of the orgy shows more graphic acts that were in the original screenplay.

At the SXSW screening, which was an unfinished cut, there was an additional live-action scene with Seth Rogen, Edward Norton, and Michael Cera sitting in a diner eating, as the animated characters watch them in horror. The scene was cut, due to little response from test screenings. There is speculation that it is being saved to be used as the opening scene of Sausage Party 2.

The scene where Gum is shot by the store manager, then reassembles the hole in his body, is a nod to the T-1000, of which the Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) theme can be heard in the background.

In the final battle of food vs humans, Darren goes into his lower drawer for his firearm, for incase of a store robbery like most store clerks do now. If you look real closely, it is in a small but very close comparison of a Smith & Wesson 500 revolver.
