Yup. It happened. I saw it. Now let’s talk about it.
“Sausage Party” is a movie about a whole bunch of food finding out what really happens when the leave the supermarket. The movie stars a plethora of stars from Seth Rogan’s set of groupies including Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, Chris Robinson, Edward Norton, ect.. You get it. There are a lot of famous people.
First. I remember seeing this trailer for the first time and like most other people, I went from horrified to rolling on the floor laughing in a matter of seconds. I was really too excited to see this movie after seeing the red band trailer. Did it live up to the hype though?
I would answer that question with a hesitant “yeah”. The movie was just about exactly what I expected from the duo of Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg. Lots of f-bombs, weed, and sex jokes. To me that’s definitely not a bad thing. I think that if you are a fan of the humor in other Rogan/Goldberg films, then you will not walk away from this movie mad. There are some killer scenes with shock value that will have you dying. There are also some scenes that I felt drag on too long or are just not as funny as they thought they were.
Really there is not much more to say. Salma Hayek and Bill Hader were stand outs to me with their work on the secondary characters as Teresa Del Taco and Firewater. All of the voice actors did a fine job. I would just say that if you like movies like “Superbad” or “This Is The End” you will enjoy this movie. If jokes about hot dogs and buns touching tips don’t get you going, then this might something to skip.
