Supermarket shelf cheering: A big holiday is coming up and that means that people are doing their grocery shopping. For the groceries the big chance to escape from their desolate existence in the supermarket and find the great happiness in the world outside. Especially for Frank sausages and Brenda hot-dog buns, which are immortally in love with each other, the opportunity now presents itself to be freed from their packaging and finally united. Oh, what would that be nice? But then Frank has doubts that paradise is really waiting beyond the supermarket checkouts. When he finds out the truth about their fate in the outside world together with a troop of other food, a merciless fight for survival begins for sausages, rolls, potatoes and the like…
Oh, an animated film with funny talking sausages - well, I'm going right in with my dear little children. No way!!!!! Because "Sausage Party" is a lot of things - just not a children's movie! In the USA, the tough fun was the first computer animation film to receive a rating. And for good reason. Because in the story invented by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Jonah Hill it goes quite to the point. Always below the belt, often politically incorrect and also damn brutal. The fact that the authors consumed certain substances when thinking about and writing down the story, which also play an important role in the film, is out of question in view of the completely crazy story. However, between countless ferkeleias and scorn, the script also has some really original and enigmatic jokes to offer, which at the end, however, don't necessarily stick in the viewer's mind.
Because towards the end there is a sequence that no viewer will ever forget. It will be difficult for many to go through a supermarket with pure thoughts afterwards, let alone eat things like hot dogs. And those who still believed that a film with talking food was only for children, will be taught a better lesson. Believe me: you don't want to have to answer the questions that would arise here with small spectators! And nobody wants the little ones to be traumatized by the sight of a sausage.
Jokes aside: "Sausage Party" is a movie, which is actually only really fun in a bigger, well laid out group. In addition, one must not be too delicate when it comes to sex, drugs and violence. A penchant for late pubertal humor should also be present. Then, but only then, this grotesque animation strip is a lot of fun. If you have a general problem with the films of Seth Rogen and his ilk, you will desperately leave the movie theater after ten minutes at the latest.
It is a pity that the great potential behind the story was only marginally exploited in favour of countless sex jokes. The movie would have had what it takes to become an absolute cult movie if the makers had paid more attention to the satirical aspects of the story. These are available, but are largely lost. Nevertheless: even if many gags are set too low below the belt line, simply do not ignite or are too flat, the fun factor is still very high. It's just a pity that many of the word jokes cannot be translated into German, so that some additional jokes were lost during synchronization. But if you get involved with it, you get something here that you won't forget again so quickly. And for that there is a deserved one: Worth seeing!
