R Rated

And animated.

Sony Pictures and Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures will partner on the new R-rated animated film “Sausage Party” from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Directed by Conrad Vernon (“Monsters vs. Aliens”) and Greg Tiernan, ”Sausage Party” is a raunchy animated movie about one sausage’s quest to discover the truth about his existence. After falling out of a shopping cart, the hero sausage and his new friends embark on a perilous journey through the supermarket to get back to their aisles before the 4th of July sale. ...

Mr. Rogen, of course, has been a voice actor in Cartoonland for years. Also a w4riter. Also a producer. So moving purposefully into the production of animated features isn't a big leap.

But the "R rated" angle is interesting. Not many of those being made.

Please--no more cartoons for kids. The race to juvenile in animation is NOT good. This is sit-com writery claptrap that's NOT a step forward for the medium.
