Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapoport run the celebrity tabloid show "Skylark Tonight". When they land an interview with a surprise fan, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, they are recruited by the CIA to turn their trip to Pyongyang into an assassination mission.
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
The main characters are aware of the concept of eating, and that they themselves are food, yet act horrified when they discover that they are to be eaten. This is consistent with one of the main themes of the movie - the rejection of reason and evidence in favor of blind faith in merciful gods and the Great Beyond... until it's too late. 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.

Wonderful comedy that summarizes the nature of the human life
*Possible Spoilers!*This movie will be emotionally rejected by highly religious people without a thought. Although the language can be quite shocking, the movie reveals the real nature of humanity and survival instincts. I like this movie because it was a different and brave show of cultural references like Freudian psychology, racism, antisemitism, the new look at modern science, and has connections to Stephen Hawking, and even critiques the distant spirituality in our consumerist society. The movie gives us a twisted view of the question "What if you can be consumed". With small pop culture influences and a great finale in reference to the world-recognized book by German author Patrick Süskind, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, this movie turns out to be a great message to people who are real literates. The higher rating users give to this movie, the larger and more diverse is their library.
