A HERO WILL RISE.
A hot dog sausage and his bun girlfriend realize that their existence at the Shopwell’s supermarket is based on a lie – those groceries that humans bring out of the store are not saved, but eaten. A 3D animated comedy targeted at adult audiences, a very raunchy, foul-mouthed spoof of Disney/Pixar movies. Filled with the expected stoner and sex jokes that are part of every Seth Rogen comedy. Some of it is funny, and those looking for food-related puns will get their fill… but what makes other Rogen movies more satisfying is an emotional core. This one’s too childish.
