So I finally broke down and rented sausage party. I went in with pretty low expectations because it's a stoner film by Seth Rogen and even the concept is kind of dumb. That said it pretty much delivered exactly what I thought it would with an extra layer of disappointment.
Yes, it's full of nothing but dick jokes and excessive cussing (like literally saying fuck with almost every line) and some obligatory weed references, but it's also really inconsistent and lazy. The message of the whole movie is for the food to put aside their differences and join the fight against the humans and stop making fun of each other's differences, but that's a little funny when the entire movie spends over an hour making stereotype jokes like making the bagel a whiny Jewish guy or making the flatbread an angry Arab guy or making all the fruits gay people or making the literal only black guy in the movie a box of grits.
Then, to top it off, they couldn't decide where they wanted the sentience to begin and end. At first you think it's going to just be food that is alive, but then a literal douche comes to life (to become the main villain ), and then later on a roll of toilet paper. But never any cars, or knives in the kitchen appliance section, or really any other inanimate object. It is never made clear where the sentient objects begin and where they end, instead it seems to just be random or whatever is funny.
They also very purposely tried to make people mad with this movie. The whole end of the movie is basically over 2 minutes full of a grotesque food orgy that mostly involves male food fucking other male foods like the bagel and the flatbread, and you could tell they were just pushing the envelope with their rating and doing whatever they could to make the film Dirty. I guess a lot of people might like that, but I like my filth strategically placed and well-timed instead of just splattered all over the wall like a monkey throwing feces.
It does have some funny moments, especially when it gets really dark towards the end, but it's still hard to swallow all the lazy, lowest common denominator humor. Like I said, I wasn't really expecting much more from a movie like this, and I certainly wasn't expecting the next fucking Citizen Kane from Seth Rogen, but I wanted the movie to be a little better than this and it really wasn't. Maybe it would be funnier if you are absolutely baked off your ass or something but it certainly only got a couple of laughs out of me watching it mostly sober.
So basically, I give it about a five out of ten. Worth pirating to watch with some stoned or tripping friends, but not worth paying for and not worth watching with a clear State of Mind.
