For those of you who have ever imagined Seth Rogen reconstituted as a human handled meat item — and you know your identity — “Wiener Party” might be appreciated as, if not a blessing from heaven, then a medication powered mental trip without the conceivably hurtful symptoms. A foolish insane serving of mixed greens of modern quality raunch, Tex Avery-level visual innovativeness and, no joking, seriocomic religious moral story, this PC energized comic drama about the mystery lives of general store stock had its debut as a “work-in-advance” at the SXSW Film Festival preceding a planned Aug. 12 showy discharge. Harsh edges are extremely clear in the film’s present, not-exactly entire state — in reality, a modest bunch of scenes stay spoke to just by hand-drawings — yet it’s as of now evident that Sony could have a fair sized late-summer hit staring its in the face.
Normally, numerous guardians won’t value telling their young posterity who see trailers and TV spots that, yes, this is a toon, at the same time, no, it unquestionably is not children’s stuff. (The MPAA people haven’t formally said something yet, yet the film was relevantly built up at SXSW as “the main R-evaluated CG vivified motion picture.”) Just as normally, in any case, the appeal of an energized include that is far nearer in tone and substance to Zap Comix than Pixar will be inconceivable for some adults — and most captured young people — to stand up to. Working from a script credited to Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir, co-executives Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan submerge viewers in this present reality where sustenance, refreshments and sundry different things on general store racks are aware substances who long to chose by big-hearted “mammoths” for transportation to the “guaranteed arrive” they’ve for quite some time been guaranteed.
Forthcoming (voiced by Rogen), the most blunt of the connections in a bundle of hotdogs, energetically anticipates the glad day when he can settle inside an attractive frank bun (Kristen Wiig) and, ahem, cut the mustard. In any case, the upbeat couple’s awesome desires are overturned by a shopping basket crash that triggers a long in the wake of shopping-hours travel toward severe shock, badly designed truths and, amid an augmented peak, what likely is the main sustenance on-nourishment polysexual bash in film history.
“Wiener Party” is something far shy of Shavian as far as advanced exchange — truly, there is just so much oddity esteem one can drain from tedious fusillades of F-bombs propelled by enlivened characters — yet it is hard to prevent the diversion remainder from securing a motion picture so richly and proudly inconsiderate and rough. Racial, ethnic, sexual and sociopolitical generalizations are boldly overstated and sharpened to ironical edges, so that a Jewish bagel (Edward Norton) and an Arabic flatbread (David Krumholtz) quarrel about regional invasions in the shopping walkways; a Sapphic taco (Salma Hayek) endeavors to bait a sensibly straight pure into a stroll on the wild side; a minor wiener (Michael Cena) stresses whether circumference truly is more imperative than length; and the most offensive character by a long shot is … well, a douche (Nick Kroll). No, truly.
Complexities emerge when Frank finds reality about what happens to edibles like himself once they’re trucked out the entryway and brought home. Furthermore, more critical, he discovers that powerful “non-perishables” have made a mythos of a cheerfully ever-after the great beyond just to keep the store items from knowing anything about the nothingness that anticipates them. Not in any way shockingly, those items don’t acknowledge (or even trust) the awful news when Frank endeavors to lift their cognizance.
All of which recommends, with “Frankfurter Party” taking after “This Is the End” (which he additionally co-composed with Goldberg), that Seth Rogen might be the most subversively genuine religious allegorist working in motion pictures today. Even better, he can be entirely damn clever while spiking freewheeling kookiness with something to think about.
Take note of: The print screened at SXSW did not have shutting credits, leaving a fragmented running time of 85 minutes.
