The products at Shopwell's Grocery Store are made to believe a code that helps them live happy lives until it's time for them to leave the comfort of the supermarket and head for the great beyond. However, after a botched trip to the great beyond leaves one sausage named Frank and his companion Bun stranded, Frank goes to great lengths (pun intended) to return to his package and make another trip to the great beyond. But as Frank's journey takes him from one end of the supermarket to the other, Frank's quest to discover the truth about his existence as a sausage turns incredibly dark. Can he expose the truth to the rest of the supermarket and get his fellow products to rebel against their human masters? Written by
Perhaps due to the intention of making this R-rated comedy as cheaply as possible, working conditions for the animators were said to be very bad. According to anonymous sources who worked on the film, the studio forced them to work unpaid overtime, working days and weekends, if they wanted to keep their job, and then refused to provide food for those who complied. A few animators claimed that their reputations were threatened when they left, and the studio purposely did not include a lot of people in the final credits. After a while, so many animators left that the studio was forced to hire recently graduated students to fill their places. The exodus was only stopped when the production company stepped in, and provided food and paid overtime. The studio denied all allegations. See more »
Inanimate non-foodstuff objects such as the Douche, and the condom, are anthropomorphic, but many objects (such as the various blades) are shown throughout the film as having no anthropomorphic features. See more »

[turns to Carl]
Carl? Carl? Carl, Carl, Carl! Dude, we've slept in again! The song's about to start!
Shit, Frank! We can't miss the song!
Barry, wake up!
What? I'm up, I'm up!
This song is such an awesome way to start every morning.
It's just a super nice way of showing the gods how much we appreciate everything they'll do for us, once they take us out those doors to the Great Beyond.

It's vulgar. Over the top. And completely hilarious. It even has a serious message about religion and why we are here. Anyone that says this movie is not funny does not have a sense of humor. I never write reviews but this movie was just to funny to see people on here claiming it's not. They just broke new ground for a genre with adult animation. Why not? I'm tired of all animation being just kid movies. Easily best comedy of the year. I hope they make a sequel because I think it will be even better knowing they did something outstanding. Every character has its funny moment. I loved nick roll as the douche and Danny mcbrides honey mustard. I'd like to see mcbrides with a bigger part in the next one because he is just too funny. Krumholtz as lavish was awesome. I believe it will be even funnier a second viewing. And the final 20 minutes there is a scene so bizarre and hilarious the fact it's animation is just awesome
