An animated movie about one sausage’s quest to discover the truth about his existence.

The film was cut to avoid an MPAA NC-17 rating. On Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show, Seth Rogen discussed what he and his colleagues had to do to avoid an MPAA NC-17 rating. Among other things:

  • Scale back plans to depict a pita with a hairy scrotum during the movie’s spectacular eight-minute long orgy scene.

Rogen commented:

We submitted it and we first got an NC-17 rating back. Our fear was that it would create this big negotiation process where we had to butcher the whole thing…we probably added six things into the orgy that we were like, okay, these are our sacrificial lambs, they are the chips that we’re willing to lose, and we lost like, an eighth of one of them.

There is a pita bread, and you see his ball sack in the end of the orgy, and it had hair on it, and they asked that we remove the hair from the pita bread’s ball sack. So we digitally shaved the pita bread’s ball sack and removed the hair from it.
