Filled with crude content and foul language, Sausage Party has a strong pagan, immoral worldview marred further by a strong pro-atheist, anti-faith message.
Central to the plot is the discovery by an array of food items that the world beyond the supermarket shelves is a pretty dangerous and frightening place.
While conceding that the movie “looks great and has a style that’s truly unique to animated films”, it goes on to tell its readers:
Sadly, however, the movie uses its animated status for an unbelievably gross and graphic array of sexual jokes, both verbal and visual. There is also a lesbian taco, who tries repeatedly yet unsuccessfully to woo the female hot dog bun. Later, a male bagel and a male lavash bread wind up having a homosexual relationship during an orgy among all the store items.Add in wall-to-wall casual profanity of every stripe, and Sausage Party is definitely not a wholesome animated comedy.
Even worse, perhaps, is the entire movie’s a thinly veiled endorsement of atheism and humanism. For example, the human ‘gods’ that the groceries prayed to for freedom, and the Great Beyond of the outside world, are both proven false and repeatedly mocked.
Any sense of faith is made to be a joke, and the message is to stop believing in any sort of a god and live in the now, for yourself. This unnecessary and callous stab at people of faith mars Sauage Party beyond redemption.
Here’s the trailer:
No prizes for guessing what guessing what’s next on my “must see” movie list.
