Sausage Party: Foodtopia Review: Fiercely Funny, Pun-Filled Filth


As for the animation, the quality mostly on par with the original. While I wouldn’t exactly call it aesthetically pleasing, it does seem to be a bit more colorful and vibrant. There does appear to be more complex textures glimpsed throughout, but there’s something about the overall animation that still feels a bit cheap, even jittery, though that last descriptor could have been an intentional choice to give it a somewhat stop-motion animation feel. Just don’t go into “Foodtopia” expecting to be wowed by the properties of animated water or pores on a human’s skin. Though you will be treated to some nasty nipples, gross hair, and even an animated scrotum or two. Maybe “treated” is the wrong word here, but in “Foodtopia,” every little hideous tidbit might as well be a disgusting treat. Conrad Vernon, who directs the whole series, and the animators certainly do the best they can with the tools and budget at their disposal.

But of course, what makes “Sausage Party: Foodtopia” is the brazen sense of humor on display. You’ll be simultaneously shocked and impressed by some of the things that Edward Norton was convinced to say as Sammy Bagel Jr. This is an Oscar-nominated actor (and notorious Marvel Studios star) spouting off things like, “F**k me senseless. Literally f**k me until I can’t think or feel anymore,” and that’s not even among the strangest dialogue in the series. (I’m also fairly certain Norton lends his voice to another character, a wrinkly, documentarian hot dog named Wiener, pronounced “Vee-ner,” and I’m sure his last name is probably Herzog).

Believe me when I say that “Sausage Party: Foodtopia” has plenty of surprises, both in the absurd, filthy comedy and the repulsive and shocking turns in the story. Yes, it can and does get weirder than an angry sentient douche controlling a human by way of the testicles, as we saw in the first movie, something that carries over into the series as well. 

“Sausage Party: Foodtopia” offers more of the same while also elevating things just enough to make this eight-course meal feel refreshing and hilarious all over again.
