Sausage Party is a 2016 adult computer-animated comedy film directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan and written by Kyle Hunter, Ariel Shaffir, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg from a story by Rogen, Goldberg, and Jonah Hill. A parody of Disney and Pixar films, the film's animation was handled by Canada-based Nitrogen Studios. The film's rough cut premiered on March 14, 2016 at South by Southwest, followed by its general theatrical release in the United States and Canada on August 12, 2016 by Sony Pictures Releasing.

Plot

Life is good for all the food items that occupy the shelves at the local supermarket. Frank (Seth Rogen) the sausage, Brenda (Kristen Wiig) the hot dog bun, Teresa Taco and Sammy Bagel Jr. (Edward Norton) can't wait to go home with a happy customer. Soon, their world comes crashing down as poor Frank learns the horrifying truth that he will eventually become a meal. After warning his pals about their similar fate, the panicked perishables devise a plan to escape from their human enemies.

Bad Qualities

  1. The biggest problem with the movie is that while the CGI animated adult film is fine, it is sadly didn't do well. Another biggest problem with the movie is that it tries way too hard to tell the viewer it is an adult animated film, making in the film being littered with unnecessary profanity and sexual jokes. Unlike South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut, which uses the swearing spree in a satirical manner, this film uses profanity just to be hip, cool, and vulgar.
  2. Incorrectly characters depicted; for instance, inanimate non-foodstuff objects such as the Douche, and the condom, are anthropomorphic, but many objects (such as the various blades) are shown throughout the film as having no anthropomorphic features.
  3. There are several main problems with the characters:
    • Frank is a-
    • Brenda is a-
    • Douche is a-
  4. The infamous orgy scenes at the ending.
  5. It does says it is a parody of Pixar films by uses inanimate objects as characters, like Toy Story and computer-animated. But this isn't what makes Pixar movies. They do have emotion, likable characters, and unexpected and subtle observations of humanity. Does this movie have any of this? No.
  6. Too many unnecessary pop-culture references, including references of The Wizard of Oz, West Side Story, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and Bride of Chucky.

Good Qualities

  1. The storyline is surprisingly thought-provoking; it's about how people leave religion and truth unchecked and how religious people can be closed-minded and unaware of the truth of their beliefs.
  2. The animation is beautiful to look at by Nitrogen Studios, who also animated Happily N'Ever After, and four Thomas & Friends direct-to-video films of Hero of the Rails, Misty Island Rescue, Day of the Diesels and Blue Mountain Mystery.
  3. Not all the voice acting is bad.

Reception

Despite Sausage Party receiving fairly indifferent reviews from critics, who particularly praised its humor and screenplay, it was shown to be a disappointment from the audiences. On Rotten Tomatoes the film has an approval rating of 82% based on 234 reviews, with an average rating of 6.80/10 and the audience approval rating of 50%.
