Sausage Party (2016)

Director(s): Greg Tiernan, Conrad Vernon. Voices: Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Salma, Hayek, James Franco, Edward Norton, Danny McBride, Bill Hader, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd. 89 min. Rated R. Animation.

Inanimate food items in a grocery store have feelings of their own à la Pixar tradition, hoping to be bought and leave the store for the "great beyond", not knowing it's a slaughterhouse out there. The movie tries to dispel the notion of God and promote religion coexistence, but loses steam because it: 1) adheres loosely to its own rules of interaction between humans and talking/walking food, and 2) makes irrelevant use of food-based sexual innuendo and saying the f-word a thousand times to project deep philosophical content. The film-makers don't realize that religious people avoid these types of movies.
