Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (86 ):
Kids say (165 ):

This animated comedy is decidedly not for kids; it's rambunctiously filthy in more ways than one. And while it's not exactly hilarious, it's at least consistently amusing and has a positive attitude. Co-written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, Sausage Party tells a familiar story, but it does so by using every kind of food joke imaginable, from creative to groan-worthy (as well as jokes about other supermarket items ranging from feminine hygiene products to bathroom tissue).

Often, the jokes simply rely on an overabundance of foul language and sexual innuendo, but many are surprising and worth a laugh. The comedy all-star voice actors are very lively in their performances, even if their characters aren't terribly deep or engaging. The first-class computer animation is swift and colorful, and Alan Menken's music is exhilarating. It's doubtful that this is a movie that will warrant repeat viewings, but it's a "party" worth attending once.
