Sausage Party

3/5 Stars

Summary: “A sausage strives to discover the truth about his existence.”

I really wanted to love this movie, but it was just middle of the line.  Throughout it, there were a few moments where I thought the storyline was pretty good, but then others where it was just a movie relying on the fact that it was an adult animation to get by.  Which, if that’s what you want, that’s fine—you’re going to love the movie.

The villain in the movie didn’t work too well for me, because none of his scenes seemed to matter.  I almost feel like the movie would have been 100 times better if the main characters had made it out of the food store and had to battle against the humans the entire time.

To be fair, there were great jokes all over the place as you would expect from Seth Rogen and co.  Some of it was actually pretty smart humor, not just all easy sex jokes.  It was just that when there wasn’t a joke I was kind of bored.

Also, I really could have done without that orgy scene at the end.  That was weird.

Dirty Grandpa

4/5 Stars

Summary: “Uptight lawyer Jason Kelly is one week away from marrying his boss’s controlling daughter, putting him on the fast track for a partnership at his firm. Tricked by his grandfather Dick, Jason finds himself driving the foulmouthed old man to Daytona Beach, Fla., for a wild spring break that includes frat parties, bar fights and an epic night of karaoke. While Jason worries about the upcoming wedding, Dick tries to show his grandson how to live life to the fullest.”

I had put off seeing this movie for a while now because I had seen some bad reviews for it online.  After watching it though, I don’t know what all those people were talking about.

From the title alone, you can pretty much guess, Dirty Grandpa isn’t going to be an Oscar worthy film, but a raunchy comedy that will hopefully give you some laughs.  Which is exactly what it was.

The storyline was funny, seeing Robert De Niro acting like a dirty grandpa didn’t creep me out as much as I thought it was going to, and it kept me wanting to keep watching.  I laughed, and that’s really all you want from a comedy isn’t it?

Love Zac Effron, and I would suggest you go see this if you like his other comedies like Neighbors 1+2.

Eastbound & Down

4/5 Stars

Because I loved season one of Vice Principals so much, I decided to give Eastbound & Down a try.

The main character, Kenny is a publicly disgraced major league baseball player who is constantly trying to get back on top (and usually failing miserably).  Each of the four seasons are kind of set in very different points in Kenny’s life which was interesting.  After season 1 I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I liked how it changed.

There are so many AMAZING guest star roles.  Will Ferrell, Jason Sudeikis, and Adam Scott just to name a few.  Along with the other great reoccurring characters are really what makes the show.

Honestly, there were some parts where I wasn’t that into the show.  It definitely isn’t as funny as Vice Principals, but if you enjoy raunchy comedy you need to check this one out.
