Why You Shouldn't Bring Your Children To Watch 'Sausage Party'

Why You Shouldn't Bring Your Children To Watch 'Sausage Party'

Please, don't scar your children.


**There are spoilers below, please do not read any further if you don't wish to know any of the plot**

From the title of the movie, one should be able to figure out that this is not suitable for children. If the title isn't enough to sway you from taking children, maybe the name of one of the producers will: Seth Rogen. I wouldn't even recommend anyone under 21 going to watch it, or maybe it's just me. It takes an immense amount of tolerance for Seth's type of humor. Yeah, it started as a typical R rated movie with the profanity and wildly offensive humor, which wasn't a problem with me, but it quickly turned into a hard R.

There were some intense scenes that alluded to real life situations, like rape and murder early on in the film. The former was the most uncomfortable to watch for my friend and I; we both turned to each other with that "WTF" look on our faces. Actually, we probably had the "WTF" look during majority of the movie. The second most uncomfortable was the weird, explicit sex scenes near the end. I've never been more confused and horrified at food before. I will never again look at hot dogs, buns, bagels, etc, the same again. So if you want to go through that horror with your children and have to explain afterwards what those foods were doing to each other, go for it. Just know you're making the other adults in the theater uncomfortable by having your kids watch the movie with them, and yes, they are judging you.

Since school is coming up fast, your children that watched the movie are definitely gong to talk all about how you took them to watch "Sausage Party," cue more judgement from teachers and the parents that were told by their kids about it. Not only that, but everyone knows how children love to mimic lines they've heard. There's no telling which inappropriate line from the movie they'll be quoting from then on.

Another thing brought up early in the film is one of the main characters, a douche. If you want to explain what a douche is to the children you brought into the movie, go ahead. Just don't do it in the movie. It's already awkward enough that the other adults have to sit through your kids asking questions they shouldn't have even thought of, but they don't deserve hearing you explain what the character is or what he did to that poor juice box. You shouldn't have to explain what the human character is doing with the bath salts either. Really, you shouldn't have to explain anything in the movie, because children shouldn't be there in the first place. Drug use isn't a kid-friendly topic, just like the rest of the film.

R is not a hard enough rating for this movie. It's more like an X-rated film. Anyone bringing their children might risk traumatizing their kids for life. And that "It can't be worse than what they see/hear on late night TV" crap? Not a good excuse to bring your kids. Same goes for the "Well they won't know what's going on anyway," excuse. Just find a babysitter. Please.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Those Hormones Aren't Gonna Balance Themselves

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

It's common knowledge that your hormones impact practically every aspect of your body. Weight gain, acne, mental health... it's all related to your hormonal health. If your life is treating your body like the superstar it is, your endocrine glands should produce the perfect amount of each hormone to keep you running like a well-oiled machine. This is a nice thought, sure. In our current society, even the most balanced person you know may be missing an important aspect of respecting their body. Things like sleep, stress, diet, exercise, and a busy pace of life can throw hormones off balance and negatively impact your general wellbeing. Sometimes these imbalances are noticed right away, while other times they can be smaller — annoying, but not as obvious.

One of the biggest discomforts I initially had with the stay-at-home order was feeling trapped and isolated from what was going on outside the walls of my house. Add that to living in a massive city, where social distancing is nearly impossible when doing something as simple as walking down the street.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
