its opening moments Sausage Party, the absurd R-rated “Toy Story with talking food”
adult animation film from 2016, seems to be laughing at its own audience for
buying into its absurd premise.
flick never really explains its central conceit and uses the idea as a
launching board for some sophomoric humour and puerile set pieces. But Sausage
Party takes this approach up a notch when proceedings culminate in an extended
sex scene which is designed to amplify how stupid we all are for even watching
the movie in the first place.
It could have all been delightfully dumb, but between
allegations of the filmmakers never paying animators for the flick and some
seriously tasteless analogies for the ongoing Palestinian occupation, this one
really leaves a gross taste behind.
