What is Sausage Party About?
‘Sausage Party’ tells the story of a supermarket that is filled with anthropomorphic grocery items. Unknown to humans, these items worship them as Gods and are convinced that humans take them to the Great Beyond. Among the grocery items is a sausage named Frank, who dreams of this utopia. Frank wants to get there with Brenda, his hot dog bun girlfriend, as well as his friends Barry and Carl.
Frank and Brenda’s packages get purchased by a woman named Camille Toh. When they are on their way out, they meet a returned bottle of honey mustard who tries to warn them that the Great Beyond is a lie. Nobody but Frank listens, but the honey mustard commits suicide, which causes an accidental collision of two carts. As a result, Frank, Brenda and some other items fall out, including douche, whose nozzle is bent and swears to take revenge on Frank for the troubles.
Following Honey Mustard’s instructions to talk to Firewater, a liquor, Frank leads the others to the liquor aisle. Firewater offers some marijuana and tells the group that along with the other non-perishables, they made the white lie of the Great Beyond so that other foods would not live in fear of being eaten. Frank vows to reveal the truth to other groceries. He is encouraged to go beyond the store’s freezer section in search of proof. Brenda and the others are taken to the Mexican aisle of the store, by a bottle of tequila who turns out to be working for the Douche. However, Teresa del Taco, a lesbian taco shell in love with Brenda, helps them escape.
Meanwhile, Carl and Barry discover to their great horror that the Great Beyond is a lie, in Camille’s house. Carl is sliced in half, but Barry manages to escape and meets an addict who can talk to the groceries by injecting himself with bath salts. However, when the salts wear off, the addict prepares to cook Barry, but an accident allows Barry to escape with the decapitated head of the addict. In the store, the action heats up as Frank’s friends do not accept his skepticism of the Great Beyond. In response, Frank shows them a cookbook where the groceries are stated as ingredients for food. This causes immense panic, until Barry returns, telling them that humans are not gods.
An epic battle begins as the groceries begin to control humans with toothpicks laced with bath salts. Frank and his friends have to face Douche, but he is trapped in a pail filled with explosives and launched out of the store, where an explosion kills him. The victory of the groceries is celebrated with a store-wide orgy. Later, Frank and his friends meet Firewater and Gum. The latter is a wad of chewing gum that resembles Stephen Hawking. Gum claims to have had a psychedelic experience, realizing that their world is not real and they are cartoon characters voiced by famous actors in another dimension. Intent on meeting their creators, the groceries decide to step through a portal that Gum has created for the purpose. Now, let us tell you where you can watch this funny, layered movie.
