For some unknown reason the characters in Sausage Party have no idea they are consumables. It's the first dumb premise in a long line of F-Bombs, sick jokes, and outright grossness.

Lewd and lascivious Frank the hot dog (Seth Rogen), and Brenda the bun (Kristen Wiig) actually believe paradise lies outside of the supermarket shelves. Everything begins to devolve at this point making this movie one long and boring ride. For an hour and a half we are subjected to an overly extended drunken frat party.
 
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg must have been really high when they wrote this screenplay. Besides appealing to the lowest common denominator, this film has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Any message it tries to convey is quickly undone by another layer of cheap vulgarity via 'El Douche' - (use your imagination).
 
'Sausage Party' is one long sight gag that doesn't know how to resolve itself. The last thirty minutes are one huge food orgy of bisexual tacos, horny hot dogs, gay bagels, and sexually frustrated fruits and vegetables. After relieving themselves of all this pent-up frustration, the exhausted supermarket inhabitants escape through a space-time portal to freedom. Amen, and good riddance to you all. Sausage Party belongs in the garbage disposal.
