| Sausage Party: An Observation of the Modern World
Observation manages to combine all of the stereotypes shared by different cultures of one another, intertwine this with raunchy humor, ultimately painting a portrait of how intolerable this the planet is becoming.

A few facts (for those whom would prefer NOT to hear the ramblings of a long- time film fanatic): The film has been estimated to have been built on a $19- million budget, grossing about $34-million opening weekend (USA). For your comparison: Finding Dori (2016) cost an estimated $200-million bringing in about $135-million opening weekend (USA). Whether a fan or not, there is clearly something to be said regarding the brilliance that is Seth Rogen.

One thing is clear: this was hand-crafted by Rogen and therefore filled extensively by his observations and humor from start to finish. The script was something he had in the works for nearly ten years!

I suspect many will turn away from this due to religious affiliation. I am an atheist but would stress that with all of the violence, racism, sexism, and every other "ism" in the world, that this was an attempt to address the way that many denominations and organizations are misunderstood by one another.

A female coworker at my office came by on Monday morning to exclaim that it was indigent humor, and I quote "racist." To those who would even have the slightest inkling of accusing this work racist, you have completely misunderstood. In fact, one of the messages that could be drawn from watching this would have to do with the necessity for removing the "racist" culture and indirect racism that can be created through attempting to group individuals by religious affiliation or any other characteristics.

DO NOT take your children. The entire run-time was packed with bad language, a ton of sexual innuendos, so you've been warned.

Enjoy the film, appreciate the message, don't take anything personally. It was not the intent of Rogen or any other Directors/Writers.

Oh, and just to make this "review-worthy"... the film uses various Super Market foods, drinks, and items to represent humans incorporating the different stereotypes often heard of for numerous Religions, ethnic groups, and sexual preferences/identities. By using such simple characters, it attempts to put some of the world's problems onto the simplest of stages for the world to see and take in for themselves.
