Frank (Seth Rogen) is a sausage and Brenda (Kirsten Wiig) is a hotdog bun they are destined to be together and await the day when the gods (humans) will unite them in the great beyond outside the supermarket doors where they can be in perfect union together. Their world is shattered by a near miss with the great beyond and news that everything they have been told may not be as it seems beyond the supermarket doors.
Believe it or not there is some degree of an intelligent idea behind sausage party. A critique of religion, commentary on what it means to believe in something and in conjunction with that the need for tolerance of others.
However this gets somewhat misplaced beneath layers of stereotyping, smut and innuendo that take precedence over the reasonably intelligent concept.
I've never been a massive fan of Seth Rogen and chums style of comedy. Their laddish, stoner humour never really worked for me. In places however Susage Party did amuse me greatly. A sequence depicting the different strands of belief within the supermarket aisles and a vegetable waving a 'God hates figs' placard was enough to raise a hearty chuckle.
Anyone going to see this should be aware that if you are sensitive about profanity or sexual content this is definitely one to avoid. I'm not a prudish person at all but at times I was taken aback by the constant swearing and the final sequences are particularly jarring when all the products are free to party with reckless sexual abandon.
As I said before there is a glimmer of an intelligent idea within this movie but sadly it struggles for breath under the weight of smut, innuendo and laddish profanity. This is certainly not a film for the faint hearted or easily offended.
