Sausage Party Got Censored for the R-Rating

The MPAA Likes Pita Privates Properly Shaved

Over 2 years ago, we already reported that the animation comedy Sausage Party by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg was still in NC-17 territory. Apparently, that didn't change until shortly before the film's US theatrical release since it got slapped with the infamous rating by the MPAA in the first round.

In an interview with the Howard Stern Show, Seth Rogen mentioned that they inserted some scenes into the orgy sequence that they believed to be a red flag for the MPAA and the "R" rating. But those were scenes the makers weren't hellbent on keeping in the film. Rather, they were supposed to serve as leverage in order to keep other scenes in that would otherwise be focused on. It's a common practice in Hollywood aimed at avoiding too much censorship. Interestingly enough, all those bait scenes didn't freak out the MPAA except for one. The ratings board didn't want to see a hairy nutsack on one pita bread. After the studio digitally shaved the hair off, the MPAA was satisfied. That wouldn't have been necessary back in the 70's.

The comedy in which groceries are actually alive, hidden from the human eye (similar to Toy Story), started in US cinemas on August 12th, 2016.
