Sausage Party (2016)
The Animated Film that was the Laugh I needed
My thoughts on Sausage Party :D (spoiler free as always unless it was in the trailer then it is fair game)!
The short answer: Brightly animated, jokes both visual and verbal come a mile a minute, pulls NO PUNCHES, you will be offended, you will be grossed out, but you will laugh your a$$ off XD go see this movie!
Oh and I know that you guys are smart cookies :3 but if you were thinking of bringing your kids, nieces, nephews, etc. to this thing DON'T!!! IT IS NOT A KIDS MOVIE!?!?!? I am dead serious....... o-o oh but if you are too young to get into this movie just tell your folks it's the latest from Pixar/Dreamworks :D no no don't do that....... but only if you really want to ;D
The long answer: Sausage Party if the latest haze of smoke from the drug enhanced minds of Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and their usual crew; that is a bit of a spoof on the Pixar/Dreamworks animated films (The opening song is composed by Alan Menken even :D yeah the guy behind the songs from The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin just to name a few :D)!
It tells the tale of Frank the Hot Dog voiced by Seth Rogen and Brenda the Bun voiced by the lovely and funny Kristen Wiig and their adventure in their society that is the supermarket Shopwells. They live in a world where every food item views humans as Gods and to be selected to leave the store is a great honor because "The Great Beyond" awaits them. However, Frank and Brenda find themselves stranded in the supermarket and trying to find their way back to their aisle in hopes of being "chosen" again while unraveling the truth of what happens when food leaves the store and meeting some colorful characters along the way :D
And when I mean colorful I mean this film covered it's bases and effectively makes fun of I think every single race in the book (Irish, German, Native American, Black, Asian, Latino, Muslim, Jewish; I might have missed some) several religions and several communities and to tell you the truth; with how serious, depressing, and for lack of a better term PC the world has become in recent years this was a breath of fresh air that was just the laugh I needed XD
Was I offended and think they went too far sometimes; yes. Did I find some jokes more crude and disgusting then funny; yes. Is it immature; yes. But, those things didn't ruin the movie for me because they went all the way with their humor. My philosophy is that you make fun of everyone; or no one at all and that there is a time and place for humor and a time and place for no humor (but a movie is sometimes the perfect place for humor; it's escapism) and this film understands that. So the fact that some parts got to me showed that it worked; at least from my point of view :3
So if you are someone who is offended easily, doesn't like sex humor, crude humor, swearing humor, immature humor, you will probably have a bad time with this feature film :3 but the fact that we live in a time where an animated R film is possible is fantastic because there hasn't been one is a while (yeah there are more look them up I dare you o_o).
But, to wrap up guys Sausage Party is a brightly animated spoof on the typical Pixar/Dreamworks formula (think Toy Story but with food) fused with a stoner comedy, whose creativity comes from it's gloves off offensive jokes and great visual gags, and strangely has a few messages that might just ring true and resonate with some folks :3 Also, the last third act of this film might go TOO FAR like REALLLLY TOO FAR. I thought they would stop at some point; but NO they keep going and going and it gets MORE and MORE CRAZZZZY; I was stunned, horrified, confused, and laughing all at the same time XD the fact that last third is in this movie just might be worth the price of admission alone!
So for this wild ride I liked it better then expected and I gotta be honest I'm gonna give Sausage Party 41/2 stars out of 5. Or 9 out of 10 by IMDb so maybe 8.5 on there scale I'll just round up :3
As always thank you guys so much for reading my silly reviews it really brings a smile to my face to know you took the time to at least hear my opinion :) I look forward to doing more of these and who knows if enough people request something I might just have to see it ;)
