The sexual innuendos are churned out like a string of chipolatas in an adults-only animation where Seth Rogen gives voice to a hot dog.

Twelve years after the late Anthony Minghella bought the rights to adapt Liz Jensen’s bestselling novel, her story of a boy who cheats death finally hits the big screen.
