This weekend, the outrageously funny Sausage Party lands in cinemas, set to stun audiences all across the UK.
Michael Cera, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig and Paul Rudd all lend their voices to grocery items, who believe that humans are mythical Gods who choose them from the supermarket to go to “The Great Beyond”. Of course, the truth is much darker, as the revered humans are only taking them home to eat, something which becomes very apparent all too quickly.
To get you in the mood for Sausage Party, we’ve chosen our three favourite outrageous comedies available on Blu-ray.
Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and Seth McFarlane star in this hilarious comedy about a young boy called John who – after a Christmas wish – brings his one and only friend to life: his teddy bear named Ted. Now a grown up, John still lives with Ted, who despite being his best friend, is a terrible influence on him. John’s girlfriend soon has enough of Ted’s ludicrous antics, and gives John an ultimatum: it’s her, or the bear.
Ted comes with a number of hilarious special features, including audio commentary by Seth MacFarlane, a making-of documentary and over fifteen minutes of deleted scenes. You can also get the sequel – Ted 2 – as part of a boxset Blu-ray collection.
Team America: World Police
Matt Stone and Trey Parker – creators of South Park and The Book of Mormon – returned to the big screen in 2004 with this laugh-out-loud puppet hit.
Team America: World Police parodies the classic Thunderbirds series, as well as the destructive big budget action films of the 1990s. It follows a fictional paramilitary unit known as Team America: World Police, who are tasked with saving the world from a terrorist plot led by Kim Jong-il. The squad recruits Gary Johnston, a Broadway actor they believe has the skills to infiltrate the terrorist cell. However, it soon becomes clear that he may not be as convincing as they think…
Austin Powers – created and played by Mike Myers – has become famous around the world as one of film’s most iconic British characters.
Austin Powers is living the high life as a spy in 1960s London, battling his nemesis Dr. Evil, who eventually escapes to space and cryogenically freezes himself. Powers, concerned about Dr. Evil’s return, also freezes himself, in order to protect the world against Dr. Evil in the future. When Powers is thawed out in the mid-nineties, he finds the world is a different place, and he finds it hard to adjust to the more conservative lifestyle he must now lead, while also facing up to his arch enemy once again.
You can get Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery along with its two sequels as part of a triple pack Blu-ray collection. It comes with a number of bonus extras, including audio commentary by Mike Myers, deleted and alternate scenes, music videos and a mockumentary about Dr. Evil.
