Now an animation movie that is aimed at adults? Well this is something that I can get behind so let’s see what I thought of it.
While living in a supermarket the food there believes that when they are bought and taken into the unknown land of outside that their lives are going to get better. Well that is until a food item comes back from the beyond and has a whole new story to tell everyone, but who will believe it ?
Now instantly the first thing that I noticed about the story is how it is probably the first of its kind which is quite surprising especially from a movie within the last 5 years. It is an actual story that I want to watch as I didn’t have a clue on how it would end and even towards the end I still found myself on the edge of my seat trying to figure out how the characters were going to come out with a win.
Now the voice acting is pretty decent in this with Seth Rogan taking up the lead role of Frank, a hot dog, he does a good job in bringing the humour to the movie but at the same time giving off the right vibe when the movie takes on a more serious note. However my personal favourite voice actor of the movie has got to go to Micheal Cera who plays Barry who is a deformed hot dog and actually has a surprisingly big role to play compared to what you would think of him during the beginning scenes. Don’t get me wrong this cast is full of big names such as Jonah Hill, James Franco, Bill Harder, Salma Hayek and Paul Rudd who all did a good job but I preferred Micheal Cera due to the character progression.
Animation time and I think they did a really good job in bringing the food to life, the mixture of the bright colours and the different food types kept the movie fun to watch.
The humour is very adult based, seeing how it is an R rated movie (or 15 rated for the brits) but i found a lot of the jokes to be very funny and for some reason food related jokes are just hilarious to me.
For a movie that has become the highest grossing R rated animated movie of all time I did have some high hopes for it and I can say that the movie was better then what I thought it would be. Good story, great animation, pretty good voice acting and some dark humour there is nothing not to love in this movie.
