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”

  • Little Women: The Musical

    CHICAGO – The story of “Little Women,” by Louisa May Alcott, has been an American institution since its publication in 1869. The story of four girls-to-little-women during the American Civil War, with their indomitable mother holding down the household while their father is away in the war, was a perfect candidate to become a Broadway musical. The Brown Paper Box Co. (BPBCo) is currently presenting a brilliant adaptation of that musical for the storefront stage, and its emotion, music craft and energy is nothing sort of a triumph… this small theater company that could does it again. The show has various evening/matinee performances at the The Strawdog Theatre in Chicago through February 9th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
