QuickHit: ‘Sausage Party’

The movie never really moves beyond its one central joke – inanimate food items walking and talking like real people! – and maybe if the execution of this one joke was funnier or implemented more cleverly I’d be more forgiving. But I just didn’t find it that consistently funny or interesting. The movie also attempts to make some half-hearted point about the dangers of singular devotion to organized religion? Okay, sure, whatever. There are some decent sight-gags and occasional lough-out-loud moments, but just not enough for this to feel worth the time.
