Our Score
In what was billed in America as the first R-rated feature-length animation (though there are some precedents), food and other comestibles take on a life of their own. It's a ribald, resolutely outrageous tale set largely in a supermarket where a horny hot dog (voiced by Seth Rogen) and a pretty bun (Kristen Wiig) dream of being together in a utopia they believe lies beyond the sliding doors. But a jar of honey mustard returns to the store, rattled, with a different story to tell. So begins a journey across the aisles to discover the truth about their real place in a gluttonous world, while a crazed (and quite literal) douche bag (Nick Kroll) is in hot pursuit. A scene riffing on Saving Private Ryan - where a can of spaghetti tries to scoop up its insides - encapsulates both the horror and the hilarity. There are flashes of real inspiration, too, such as the character of a New York bagel voiced by Edward Norton channelling Woody Allen. But the concept is stretched thin over 85 minutes and at times the heavy use of foul language can feel like a substitute for witty dialogue. Some viewers may find the risqué humour hard to digest as well, but if you like your jokes raw and saucy, Sausage Party hits the spot.


When he hears life after the supermarket isn't much fun for groceries, Frank the sausage investigates. Animated comedy, featuring the voices of Seth Rogen and Kristen Wiig.
