After the success of Toy Story, animation is now a profitable movie to create. By this kind of film, the creators can do almost anything. From absurd to warm-touching, any genre of film can be animated. However, most of the animation films are for family. Children are allowed to watch this anytime they want. But, Sausage Party is none of them. It is not for children and adults are prohibited to watch this when their kids are still awake. Why? You will know the reason at the last part of the film.
Sausage Party follow the sweet love story between a sausage named Frank and a bun named Brenda. They are different, really different but love makes the it nonsense. They live in a aisle in a supermarket along with other foods. All of them live in peace with only one purpose: to be chosen by God aka Human aka us. All foods in store believe in a beautiful place named The Great Beyond, but Frank don’t. He doesn’t believe what he doesn’t see with his own eyes. And the testimony from a Honey Mustard support his believe. Honey Mustard warns everyone in the store but he got ignored by them. He tries to commit suicide by then but Frank and Brenda save him. Both Frank and Brenda failed and create a chaos. This accident lead a ordinary douche to mad. He got damaged very badly and demand Frank for revenge.
Frank then look forward Firewater, just like the last words from Honey Mustard. He, Brenda and other groceries named Karim and Sammy start their journey to find the truth. Frank finally locates Firewater. Frank asked for the truth and Firewater confess that he and his friends invents the Great Beyond. The Great Beyond is not real. After knowing the truth, he feels nothing but terrifying. Outside the shelves, foods and groceries are meals to be eaten. For us, human, it is OK and natural. But for them, it is very scary. After knowing the real truth, Frank asked every grocery and food in the store to fight back. Frank inspires everyone to take control of their life from an evil false God named us. For the first, other groceries ignored and bullied him (and Brenda, Karim and Sammy). But, Frank does not give up on them. By his last speech, he could influence others and since that, all groceries are united to beat humans out of the store.
This film promotes radical story. Instead of making sweet and funny story, Sausage Party is a gore. This film shows many unethical food murder or genocide in real. Also, dirty words are everywhere. “Fuck” and “Shit” are commonly said along with the 1.5 hours duration. I don’t mention the sex jokes, and ethnic-stereotype gags because those were too clear to hide. However, those elements make Sausage Party different with other innocent animation Hollywood ever made. It is funny but remember, inappropriate for kids in the same way.
