 “Sausage Party” could well be the funniest thing you’ve ever seen all year. This film’s stuffed with laughs and is so darn filthy that you’ll want to sanitize your fingers right afterwards.  Not for the faint of heart, it's loaded with laughs, explosive expletives, sprinkled with stereotypes and puts a subversive twist on some of our favorite animated movies.

A story about a horny hot dog named Frank (voiced by Seth Rogen) whose one goal in life is to be lodged within a big bun named Brenda (Kristen Wiig), this R-rated CG animated movie is easily the raunchiest film of 2016.

Frank (Rogen) is in love in Brenda (Wiig), and believes for the July 4th festivities that they will both be picked, and getting out of the supermarket is their version of what they believe to be heaven. He will finally get to “slip his sausage in her bun.” But when Honey Mustard (Danny McBride) spills the beans on what actually happens to the food that gets to leave, Frank sets out to discover the truth. Along the way, he encounters other produce that include a Jewish bagel, a Lesbian Taco (voiced by Salma Hayek), and a Middle Eastern lavash, while being arduously hunted by a very pissed off vaginal douche.

Bawdy and littered with extreme profanity, food orgies and juvenile gross-out gags, other notable characters include Sammy Bagel Jr.,  (Edward Norton), Mr. Grits (Craig Robinson) who hates crackers and James Franco who plays a human character called Druggie.

Directed by Conrad Vernon (“Madagascar 3,” “Shrek 2”) and Greg Tiernan (“Thomas & Friends") and produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the masterminds behind “Superbad,” “Pineapple Express,” “This Is the End” and “The Interview,” it's not for the easily offended. But once you look past the astoundingly crude dialogue and sexual gags, “Sausage Party” is consistently funny and enjoyable. There are some excruciatingly funny moments, as you would hope for given the filmmaker’s comedy pedigree.

It’s absolutely filthy, but in an intelligent kind of way for this outrageous, anything-goes animated movie is simply about the raunchy life of our food.
