Movie of the week: Sausage Party
Contains a minimum of 80% pork
Parts of this animated comedy have to be seen to be believed – a shame, then, that it’s not quite as clever as it thinks it is. Seth Rogen co-writes and stars as a sausage named, of course, Frank, a key player in a Toy Story-esque world of sentient supermarket foods, convinced that being bought sends them not into a stew but into a nirvana-style afterlife. Once Frank picks up that this may not be the case, he, and a few friends, embark on a quest to escape. This is frequently very funny, but the sweary comedy has been done better by South Park, and the crazily meta climax is a tad irritating. Times & trailer
