The title Sausage Party ought to be your first clue that this isn’t like other animated films. The recently released trailer starts off like a family-friendly affair, portraying talking food items living in a grocery store whose dream is to be “chosen” and taken to a home. However, about midway through, things take a turn for the decisively R-rated.

Sausage Party is an adult comedy from the creative team responsible for films like Superbad and Pineapple Express, starring familiar names like Seth Rogen and James Franco. The problem is that unaware parents judging the film at first glance may see only a cute animated feature. Some awkward moments are sure to arise from such confusion when the film opens in theaters.
