Benz Eye View: Sausage Party

Sausage Party

Pros:

1?) The movie is aware of its RIDICULOUS plot and premise, and they embrace it with no remorse.  Whether it is a good or bad thing is up to you.

2?) The movie is surprisingly violent in certain scenes.  It is sort of like Mortal Kombat style of violence considering what happens to the food.  Once again, whether it is a good or bad thing is up to you.

3.) This movie is actually funny.  There are plenty of areas where the jokes hit, and they can make you laugh out loud…

 

Cons:

1.) …That being said, many of these jokes are really disturbing and crude.  This is NOT a typical family animated movie; it is an ADULT animated movie, so this movie is definitely not for everyone.  They make so many sexual jokes, the characters themselves are walking sexual jokes.

2.) The animation is not that impressive, particularly on its details.  The environments and characters look stock, and it feels like they did not have time to completely finish their work, so they settled on what they have.  Overall, do not expect Disney/Pixar-levels of animation (to be fair, that probably might be the point considering there is a visual joke with Pixar).

3.) Let’s be honest, when it comes to movies produced by Seth Rogen, most of the actors are usually playing themselves or highly-ridiculous characters.  It is no different with this movie.  You can tell who is playing who with their voices (except one, which I did not recognize until the movie pointed it out).  Also, I do not recall their characters’ names, so I just remember them with either their foods or actors.

 

Overall:

So….Sausage Party.  That is a movie that suddenly exists in this day and age.  The premise of the movie that Seth Rogen stated is this: “What would it be like if our food had feelings?”  Well, we get this movie.  An R-rated animated movie for adults.  An animated movie produced by Seth Rogen.  The guy who produced Knocked Up, Superbad, Pineapple Express, and This Is The End (not a fan of those movies).  What could possibly happen?  Well, here is my overall reaction:

shocked
Sweet Lord in heaven!

I thought I knew what I was going to watch based on its premise (I did my best to avoid watching the trailers), but I never knew to be this…gross.  To be fair, it is not a bad movie.  It is a movie I do not want to see again, but it is not a bad movie.  However, it is certainly a movie that is not meant for everyone.  If you love Seth Rogen’s style of gross humor, this is a love letter to you. If you do not, RUN FAR AWAY!  For those who go to watch, I wish you luck my fellow film-viewing soldiers.
