KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Is "Sausage Party" the wurst? Does "Indignation" breed contempt? FOX 4's Russ Simmons has the latest in this week's Popcorn Bag Home Video reviews!
1) SAUSAGE PARTY (R)
“Sausage Party” is an animated comedy about anthropomorphic food items that is definitely not for the family. It's got a gifted voice cast, but after exploiting every dirty food-related double entendre the filmmakers can think of, it devolves into a supermarket orgy. There are some funny moments, but not enough sustenance for a feature-length movie.
SHAWN: Juvenile and pointless.

2) INDIGNATION (R)
Summit Entertainment/Roadside Attractions
Logan Lerman gives a potent performance in “Indignation,” a poignant 1950s coming-of-age story adapted from Philip Roth’s novel. Lerman plays a brilliant Jewish lad who can’t figure out how to cope at a repressive Midwest college. Playwright Tracy Letts is excellent as the stuffy, manipulative dean. "Indignation" is a sad but compelling drama.
SHAWN: Captivating and moving.
