Movie Reviews: Sausage Party
This movie pushed so many buttons and crossed so many lines. I’m surprised it was allowed in theatres it was so raunchy. Do not watch if you are easily offended or cannot handle being offended multiple times throughout the movie. It gets intense during some scenes, so please I’m begging you DO NOT bring your kids to see this. This movie makes South Park look like a kids show. Overall, it wasn’t good, but it wasn’t bad either. No score because I honestly can’t decide how to rate it.
The strange thing about Sausage Party is that when I saw this movie the first time, I was in shock because many of the characters were food and it just seemed strange. When I saw it the second time, I saw the characters as people, and it became much less shocking. Funny how that works. I remember working during this movie’s theatrical run and we had so many teenagers trying to sneak in.
It’s hard to say whether this movie is good or bad. It’s good because it has a decent storyline and the shock value is high, but some of the jokes are incredibly tasteless and not that funny; not to me anyway. I know some people enjoy that kind of humor and that’s perfectly fine. Then this movie is perfect for you.
The tricky part is determining whether or not it’s worth seeing in the theatre and my humble opinion, the answer is no. For someone like me, who chooses their movie carefully now that I have to pay full price for the tickets, I would have waited for the DVD to come out and either purchase it or check it out from the library.
