Sausage Party (2016)

A short but honest review of one of the most daring animations of all time.

Directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon, Sausage Party is crude, comedic and certainly different to any animated film I have ever seen.

Despite not seeing this when it was released, I knew the content; a plot based around a sausage (voiced by the hilarious Seth Rogen) seeks to uncover the truth behind what happens in the ‘great beyond’ when food is bought and taken home by customers. filled with naivety, the food believes that it will go on to a better place where it will be loved by people…when Frank discovers it isn’t all that it seems, he attempts to inform the rest of the supermarket of the horrible discovery.

Undeniably its cast is fantastic alongside Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, Salma Hayek and Jonah Hill (to name a few) voice the various foods and although there are boyish jokes a plenty, I quite enjoyed this adult animation. Granted at times the jokes were extremely crude and some of the imagery very questionable, I enjoyed the concept and it brought something new to the cinema; battling alongside the mass number of sequels and reboots which were released this year.

I think this is the type of film you take with a pinch of salt, easy to watch and with obvious use of sex jokes and stereotypes. I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoyed Superbad, This is the End and Knocked up. Harmless comedies which at first could come as a shock for some viewers due to the language and imagery – overall they are easy friday night viewings.

Even though I enjoyed it, I feel I probably won’t watch it again, it was OK, but nothing brilliant.
