Sausage Party

Release: Friday, August 12, 2016 [Theater] Written by: Seth Rogen; Evan Goldberg; Kyle Hunter; Ariel Shaffir Directed by: Greg Tiernan; Conrad Vernon Sausage Party represents Seth Rogen’s strongest screenwriting effort since Superbad. It’s been even longer since he’s been this charming in a lead role as well, and he plays a six-inch-long frankfurter. Or sausage, wiener, whatever. He’sContinue reading “Sausage Party”

This is no band-camp experience; this is a movie about adults having a sleepover. Wait, that sounds even weirder. Schwartzman’s Kurt is hosting.

This Is 40

Release: Friday, December 21, 2012 [Theater] I do like Judd Apatow but I’m going to veer off-course here, just like his directing does in this film, by saying this is in no way one of his best features.
