Sausage Party 
A 'Party' for Everyone
3/4 stars

'Sausage Party' sees Rogan and company tackle animation. Their particular brand of sophomoric humor is all over this one, as expected. What's not as expected is the satirical ways in which they use this simple premise to full effect. On the surface we have food puns, crass jokes, and all the sexual references one can make with edible objects. But beneath the self-aware juvenile exterior is a story with actual meaning. Our sausage hero comes to find that the "gods" (grocery shoppers) they worship and believe will one day take them off the shelf to spend a happy eternity, actually just plan on murdering them. Thus proving there is no afterlife beyond the supermarket. He takes it upon himself to warn everyone else, but that's the hardest task. Instead, the film opts to spread a positive message for all that essentially boils down to mediated coexistence. I admire the film for having it's fully fledged story clearly make this point without ever reverting to preaching or talking down to it's audience. The whole metaphor is obvious, but only worth hearing if you want to. This is still a raunchy comedy first and foremost, and it delivers all that you'd want from it. I laughed consistently. Many jokes caught me off guard. The obvious food related gags didn't feel cheap either. I didn't have too many big laughs. That's the only thing lacking to potentially up my score. It's fun and delivers what you'd want. Secretly smarter than your average raunch-fest. I could recommend it to most anyone of the appropriate age.
