Sausage Party

If you’ve seen a trailer for this animated film directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon, you likely know what you’re in for. The raunchy comedy starring and co-written by Seth Rogen includes the kind of humor we’ve come to anticipate from Rogen and co-stars Jonah Hill, Bill Hader and Michael Cera, of Superbad acclaim. Most of the film is set in a supermarket, where Rogen plays a sausage (technically, a hot dog) desperate to find its way into a bun (Kristen Wiig). The two believe they can finally be together when they make it to “the great beyond” after being chosen by “the gods” (grocery shoppers). The sexual innuendos are anything but subtle, and it’s amazing how much the creators get away with simply because their subjects are food items. But there’s more than just sex jokes, including musings on religion and war depicted through the relationship between a Jewish bagel and Muslim flatbread.
