Sausage Party is every bit as raunchy and politically incorrect coming from the minds of Seth Rogen, Johan Hill, and Evan Goldberg. If not for the sheer amount of F bombs and sex jokes this would fit right in with any Pixar movie. The basis of the plot is very similar to some of the Toy Story films taken to the extreme with a focus on sex while skewering organized religion and various other topics along the way. It’s pretty easy to get lost in all the raunchy fun but the script does a great job of satirizing a lot of big themes. Even with it’s headier themes mixed into the plot the film accomplices it’s primary goal of being laugh out loud funny for the better part of it’s runtime. The trek through the grocery store is a cornucopia of set pieces which are incredibly impressive and fun all leading up to a final scene that will either make you laugh uncontrollably or shake your head in disbelief.
