I didn’t find Sausage Party offensive. In fact bar a couple of scenes I found it pretty boring. Not my expected reaction.
Hidden amongst the racial stereotypes are some pretty obvious takes on religion and hedonism but even at under ninety minutes I found it dragged.
The film’s biggest problem however is its profanity. Swearing itself isn’t a problem at all. Some well placed cuss words can really elevate dialogue. Here however it’s used so much it just becomes noise.
On one hand I’m so pleased we have ‘out there’ films like this. On the other I’m hoping for better.
