CHICAGO – First things first. Don’t let the fact this is animated fool you, “Sausage Party” is most definitely, absolutely NOT FOR CHILDREN. This is a hard R-rated Seth Rogen raunch fest that may induce nightmares into more sensitive viewers and contains images of animated debauchery that can not be unseen. But it is inventively profane, with more on its mind than just animated f-bombs.

HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 4.0/5.0
Rating: 4.0/5.0

Rogen stars as the voice of a sausage named Frank. He lives in a grocery store where all the various products sing together dreaming of being picked by the gods (aka shoppers) who will take them to the great beyond outside the automatic doors. He’s also in love with a hot dog bun named Brenda (Kristen Wiig) with more curves than a mountainside highway.

When a jar of Honey Mustard (Danny McBride) is returned to the shelf, he’s acts like a soldier with PTSD just back from the battlefield. He tries to warn the other foods that the great beyond is a lie before jumping to his death, and that sets off a shopping cart mishap that sends Frank and Brenda onto a trip through the back aisles of the store to find the truth.

”Sausage Party” opens everywhere on August 12th. Featuring the voices of Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, Paul Rudd, Craig Robinson, James Franco, Edward Norton, Danny McBride, Nick Kroll, Salma Hayek and Michael Cera. Screenplay by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Ariel Shaffir and Kyle Hunter. Directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon. Rated “R”

  • Everybody, Brown Paper Box Co

    CHICAGO – When is the last time a stage play, based in an intimate setting, made you think about your life, death, and the destiny inherent in both? “Everybody,” staged by Brown Paper Box Co. (BPBCo), is such a play, and the energetic aura and sense of surprise that the show contains is soul soothing wonder. The show has various evening/matinee performances at the Pride Arts Center in Chicago run through August 12, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Not One Batu

    CHICAGO – The State of Hawaii may be one of the most misunderstood in America. Because of its reputation as a tourist mecca, the fact that native peoples live and work there like any other place is hard to imagine. Also unimaginable is the drug use of island residents, but playwright and Hawaiian native Hannah li-Epstein wrote about it in her stage play “Not One Batu,” now in its Premiere Chicago run at the Berger Park Coach House through July 28th, 2018.
