California movie theater apologizes for Sausage Party before Finding Dory screening

Oh the DRAMA!

Now I thought Sausage Party was hysterical, but it really isn't for little kids who are still learning to like their veggies. Most of the "littles" probably still play with their Mister Potato head and are learning about the food pyramid in pre-school. I however will never make potato salad again without laughing my head off!

Not my usual type thread, just some light reading.

At first glance, the new film Sausage Party seems innocent enough. Bright colors, a bubbly pop song, cheerful animated food products who just hope they get picked up at the grocery store.

But then the trailer takes a horrifying turn as the food realize their true fate. The cheese is screaming as it gets grated, baby carrots are yelling 'I want my mommy!' before they get eaten.

It was a horror shared by California parents as they watched the preview for Seth Rogen's new R-rated movie before a screening of the family film Finding Dory at a Concord movie theater.

I found multiple sources, but this was the only one with links to both movie trailers.
BTW the Octopus in the finding Dory trailer slayed me!

What would you have done? At most having seen the Sausage Party trailer before I'd of let my grandkid watch and just explained it was make-believe, for grown-ups.

1) I heard about this earlier, read the theatre's explanation and it seemed believable to me.

2) We took our 4 year old son to see Dory this weekend and if that preview had popped up I wouldn't have known what to expect because I'd never heard of it before I heard about this story.

3) My son would NOT have be traumatized. I would have made a comment to my wife and left it at that.

4) The Octopus in Dory was AWESOME!!! Such subtle humor and with just a few words here and there throughout the movie, he had us cracking up. If you like the first one.... SEE DORY!!! If you didn't see the first one, I would suggest seeing it soon THEN see Dory because there are some things you wouldn't necessarily get unless you've seen the first one first.

In conclusion, the story is kinda funny but much ado about nothing. (Don't blame you for making the thread though).

I've seen finding Nemo...can't go to the beach and see seagulls without yelling Mine! mine-mine-mine-mine!!!!
as I toss them some food.

Haven't seen the Dory movie yet but will now be barking OFF! off-off-off every time I see a sea lion!

Not a lot of people are familiar with Sausage Party but the trailer was a RIOT!! Mostly we could use a few laughs around here with all the serious threads.

There's a reason I went to your thread. Too many people taking too many things too serious around here lately.

Dude, you're gonna LOVE IT! Since it has been such a long time since the original, I kind of describe it like visiting with old friends that you haven't seen in a while (while making a few new ones). The movie has a TON of heart.

Let me know when you see it. I'll be curious what you think.

They put a Sausage Party trailer before a Finding Dory movie? I thought even the trailer was a bit wrong to be honest.

Look at the character on the left and tell me that doesn't call to mind an animated vagina for one thing.

And while I don't have an issue with that sort of thing as R rated entertainment, it's not what kids seeing Finding Dory should be seeing, even in a trailer. It's really not all that kid friendly because a trailer is designed to be ... appropriate for all audiences and I can see why the parents aren't pleased.

Pixar has great animation and a knack for yanking on heartstrings.

Wall-E dragged a bit tho. Little slow there plot-wise.
On the lighter side Pixar's Dino shorts are base humor at it's finest! Who doesn't like Dino-Farts?
I'm still waiting for Pixar to make a Dino short with one playing a tune farting with it's armpit. Your son will have a blast with these.

There are more, but couldn't find them. It's been a few years.

Ha ha I saw this earlier too. I have seen the trailer for Sausage Party I don't think most little kids will get most of it. Not that I would advocate for little kids to see it but no one is going to be traumatized.

Our kids use to watch South Park when they were little, we would watch it when it first aired and if wasn't that bad they got to watch it on Saturday when re-aired. They are now 25 and 27 and are outstanding human beings so parents need to lighten up now a days.

I would be pissed...I HATE Seth Rogan movies.

Oh it's wrong on MANY levels, but was never intended for kiddies. Actually it's a great title for a porn movie to be quite honest. I believe Seth Rogan is into making money so guessing the imagery was intentional.

I could see some parents being genuinely appalled.
...and little kids screaming now everytime you serve them baby carrots as a snack.

That alone is going to cause daily drama for awhile. Kids being impressionable. However soldiering on here in the first world in the grand scheme of things baby carrots are made from the left overs of mature carrots and sold to us as a nifty marketing item. This could be a "teachable" moment as well.

the interview was pretty hilarious. like, i had cramps in my stomach and ribs, and had to keep pausing the movie while i pulled myself back together.

I laugh at terrible things, though. I thought the trailers for Sausage Party were at least humorous.

I would much rather explain this movie to my child than homosexuality, transgender and feminine itch. It seems pretty tame compared to the crap in our media and TV commercials these days.

Well, I agree, and I loved the South Park movie too, but there is no way on God's green earth that I would take my 5-year-old to either or want him exposed to them just yet.

It's kind of like some doofus simply saw "animated" in the description and figured "kid's" and went with it.
