It stars the voices of Rogen, Hill, Kristen Wiig, Anders Holm, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, and Salma Hayek. A parody of Disney and Pixar films, the film centers on an anthropomorphic sausage named Frank living in a supermarket, who discovers the truth about his existence and goes on a journey with his friends to escape their fate while also facing his nemesis, a psychopathic douche who wants to kill him and his friends.
This film is known for being the first CG-animated R-Rated film in cinema. While Strider did say he found the film a bit cringy at times, he personally likes the film nevertheless for its symbolic representation of a melting pot on foreign cultures. He mentioned how there was a deleted scene where the anthropomorphic foods end up in live-action Hollywood through a portal after learning they're just cartoons and witness in horror Seth Rogen, Michael Cera, and Edward Norton (their voice actors) eating sausages and bagels. He said he wished for there to be a sequel to this movie where the foods are in the real world.
