In 2016, all of our eyes were opened by a computer-animated comedy, Sausage Party. The film centered around Frank the Sausage (Seth Rogen), Brenda the Hot Dog Bun (Kristen Wiig), and Sammy Bagel Jr. (Edward Norton) and their quest to go home with some happy customers. Along the way, chaos ensued, fueled by bath salts, love, and a significant amount of food-related humor. However, as the story unfolded, the food characters discovered a dark truth and ultimately rebelled against the humans in a victorious all-out war. So, what happens next?

That is exactly where Prime Videos’ new series Sausage Party: Foodtopia picks up. The food still has no society to think of.  No one is in charge. They don’t know what the world outside of the supermarket is like. Are there more dangers outside of the “humies”?


First of all, prepare yourself for a whole LOT of awkward food sex. The food pyramid orgy is not something I ever thought I would type in a review…but here we are….and it happens EARLY. It goes on for an uncomfortable amount of time. Just prepare for it.

Then, once you get past the initial WTF humor of what is going on in Sausage Party: Foodtopia, a discernible political commentary emerges, highlighting various shortcomings within all political parties in our system. The series introduces a new character, Orange Julius voiced by Sam Richardson (Ted Lasso). Richardson does an amazing job with this character and you immediately see where a lot of that inspiration comes from. S

Seth Rogan, Kristen Wiig, and Edward Norton all jump right back into their characters and you just can’t help but root for them. Overall, Sausage Party: Foodtopia was good, but it had a bit of a slow roll as everything fell into place. That said, do we need another political commentary from a franchise that has been sitting in the wings for 8 years? I don’t know. Either way, it’s good enough to give it a watch and decide for yourself.
