Sausage Party (2016)

A sausage strives to discover the truth about his existence. (IMDb)

The puns are okay, but the creative anthropomorphic food premise is funniest in its extreme plays on humanity’s physical aspects; namely, death (see the flour shell-shock scene, kitchen massacre) and sex (see the outrageous ending orgy). It swings and misses everywhere else, moving from a promisingly hilarious opening musical number to a swear-overloaded script with nary a clever joke, and a religion-related thesis just as lacking in subtlety. The meta-ending also felt silly and unnecessary.

  1. I didn’t care for this one at all. You’re totally right about the over-abundance of swearing. We get it – they’re cartoon characters cursing. It wasn’t funny, just grating! Excellent review, Joel!

  2. Good review. This was one of the only mainstream movies I did not see. The reason…I don’t know why. It didn’t look interesting me. However, I’m glad that you saw it, so I could read your review for it.
