With Seth Rogen‘s R-rated, animated comedy Sausage Party hits theaters today, the actor and a gang of animatronic delicacies invaded a supermarket to show “the people of New York that our food has feelings.”
Rogen lends his voice to a creepily lifelike cantaloupe that berates fruit shoppers into not eating his nephew, a cantaloupe. “Eat all the grapes you want, they’re shitheads,” Rogen tells one grape-stealing customer. When a group of teens see the talking cantaloupe and then continue on with their food shopping, Rogen barks at them, “Hey, is there something more interesting than a talking cantaloupe over there?”
In addition to temporarily terrifying customers, the food converse with their soon-to-be consumers. In one exchange, a young man buying sausage asks the animatronic sausage whether he’s ever tried sausage. “No, I’m not a cannibal, have you ever eaten a hipster? How many hipsters you eaten?” the sausage wonders.
Rolling Stone‘s Peter Travers gave the R-rated animated comedy four stars, raving: “You leave the fucked-up funhouse of Sausage Party thinking: Did I see this movie or hallucinate it? I mean that as high praise.”
