Sausage Party - Literal Food Porn

Sausage Party - Literal Food Porn

Sausage Party is a crude, offensive, sex-crazed movie about sentient food - alongside far more thought-provoking material than you'd expect.

How can you have a film with music by Alan Menken and not mention the music once? That is literally the only thing that has me caring about this one.

P.S. Thanks

Wow, like the review of Inside Out, this one just made Sausage Party shoot straight to the top of my "To See" movie list. I'll obviously catch it when it hits home video (I only see horror movies, Star Wars, comic book adaptations and The Raid films in theaters), but this film shares two loves of mine- examination and discussion of organized religion and faith, and dick jokes!

I find it more disturbing that most of Frank and his meat ilk, are themselves the product of the slaughter and dismemberment of other actual living creatures.

I'm also confused by the rule of when the packaging is considered part of the "living" food item, and when it isn't. The pack of hotdogs isn't alive as a whole, but the bag of potato chips is? Shouldn't it be the individual chips that are alive?

I don't think my ocd brain could enjoy this movie.

Shock value for shock value's sake. Then again, not a stonner so stonner comedy does nothing for me.

My brother intends to drag me to this. Glad to know that it might not be so bad. Still not expecting miracles though.

did you even READ it

OT: Ugh. I'm really irritated by this movie, because I'm all about examining pop culture's take on religion and culture, but I really hate crass comedies. I guess I'll skip, but with sadness.

This movie lacked a scene where a "Brave Little Toaster" kills off 2 slices of bread.

Unless you don't like crude humor, Sausage Party is absolutely worth checking out

You forgot the "or have a personal problem with Sony", because I had interest in this regardless of the ratings and critics when the first trailer came out, but then the Ghostbusters marketing campaign came out, and I've now sworn off Sony movies for theatrical release.

I literally just walked out of the movie. It was, something. I can't explain it. I found it to be a pretty average movie. It was entertaining, but I'd struggle to call it good. However, i couldn't recommend this movie with a clear conscience. I while i don't regret seeing it, if i could do it all again, i would wait for it to come out on netflix.

That's not quite fair. I'm not a stoner either, but I found Pineapple Express to be hilarious.

See I found that Pineapple Express was easily 60mins too long. It would have worked so much better as a short 30-45min short film, because they ran out of both plot and jokes by that point.

And I think that's a larger sticking point for me. Seth Rogan would be a genius short film maker, but for whatever reason people think his 30mins worth of jokes can fill an hour and a half movie. Sausage Party, even with the orgy scene, would have been so much better as a short film. Rogan shouldn't do feature length. Its not his style of comedy.

I... did not expect such a high review.

You had one fucking job, guys!

I saw it last night with my brother and, while I personally wouldn't recommend to most people, I will admit that it was a pretty decent movie overall. I was pretty impressed by the social commentary on things like race and religion and the humor was fairly high up there, but I don't see myself ever really wanting to see it again.

I regret watching this vulgar, preachy piece of trash. It replaces wit with the word Fuck, and displaces comedic timing with repetition. Did you like that joke? Cool, man, 'cuz you're going to see it 8 more times. The premise and the analogy are squandered away by unskilled story telling practices. As this review mentions, it tells instead of shows, and yet it fails to even tell in an interesting manner. The writing is lazy and inconsistent. The art style is ugly and the animation half-baked. The movie can't even stick to its premise well. Inanimate objects, in addition to food, become sentient. Packaging for some food is not sentient, whereas for other food it is. The religious analogy falls apart with Barry, who doesn't represent any group of people. The movie attempts to secure laughter through over-the-top obscenity, the kind of humor best enjoyed by shut-ins repressed by their parents, who think excessive use of the word Fuck, and open portrayals of intercourse are edgy, and a worthwhile expression in their own right.

The only good things about the movie is that it sticks to a simple, well defined three act structure so that the juvenile that like this kind of filth can follow along, though any parent who lets their child see this is grossly negligent, and it creatively managed to fit bath salts into the plot in an unexpected way.

Instead of shelling out money to see Sausage party, I would advise you to re-watch The Lego Movie. It's less expensive, and an infinitely more hilarious cartoon than this piece of garbage.

They also did this which is one of the funniest marketing ideas I've ever seen. I wasn't expecting a lot from this movie but the review makes me really want to see it.

If what I've heard about the one of the final scenes is anything to go by, nobody will have to worry about people taking their favourite characters from the film and making rule 34 about them...

Seeing this movie tomorrow.

Wait... Anti-VeggieTales?


Other than that, I would watch this movie in theaters, but I don't want to have the loudest laughs in the theater like when I saw the movie Keanu...

Edit (8/20/16 1:41PM PST): So, I ended up seeing this movie after forgetting that Kingslaive was sold out at the nearest theater near me as well as outvoted 2-1 to seeing Kubo as an alternative and... it's makes me wish that THIS was what Foodfight was suppose to be the whole time... Besides, the movie's plot, give or take some minor/major edits, could totally work as a kids movie...

I saw it today and it's a mixed bag. Most of the plot is in the trailers, but weirdly, most of the actual film follows a completely different group of characters.

Oh, that's the other problem with it. It's basically a comedy film about how religion is stupid. I'm not religious and not personally offended, but making a comedy film about how religion is stupid is like beating up a dead zombie horse with the severed penis of another, even-more-dead horse.

The whole religion angle is played really hard at the start, seems kind of superfluous to the plot, and in general detracts from the more entertainingly absurd comedy based around watching common foodstuffs scream and die in inconceivable agony.

All that said, it's still a pretty funny movie. What's interesting are the reports of incredibly shitty working conditions for the animators working on the film. Mainly because it parallels similar practices in the video game industry (unpaid overtime, "crunch" periods, shitty HR, people being removed from the credits because they quit mid-way). It turns out that in order to make a decent-looking CGI-animated film on a $19 million budget, you need to screw over your bottom-level workers hard.

Right? It makes me angry how people keep talking about this film - even praising it for it's small budget - while completely ignoring how it fucked over so many of the guys who worked on it.

Well, enough reasons for me not to even bother with the movie.
