Sausage Party

In this quasi-spoof of Toy Story, items in a big-box supermarket believe that being purchased by one of "the gods" will lead them to "the great beyond" outside the store; then a sausage (given voice by Seth Rogen) and his hot-dog-bun sweetheart (Kristen Wiig) are told by a jar of honey-mustard sauce (Danny McBride) that they're worshiping false idols, and they set out to discover the truth. Rogen and his frequent collaborator Evan Goldberg dreamed up the story with actor Jonah Hill, and though it might sound like a critique of religion, they opt instead for a lowbrow, sporadically funny celebration of hedonism. It's not Pixar, but when was the last time you saw a taco giving cunnilingus to a hot dog bun while other foodstuffs watch and masturbate? Greg Tiernan and Conrad Verdon directed; with Hill, Salma Hayek, Bill Hader, and Edward Norton.
