The University of Nevada was going to pull a serious bro move and show a free screening of Sausage Fest, the funniest movie I’ve seen in years… Until they pulled it from the schedule because of the softest reason ever.
The school’s student film committee decided that because of the one scene where a giant animated douche “rapes” a juice box, the movie shouldn’t be shown on campus. I don’t want to insult anyone’s intelligence by suggesting that this scene isn’t a “rape” scene because it clearly is. The whole “if you tell anyone about it, I’ll deny it bro” and then slapping away the juice box’s hand when it tries to stop the douche is 100% a reference to rape.
But this movie is animated, it’s over the top, and the douche ends up biting it in the end.
I am not a rape victim, but to me, removing this film from the list is just the softest move ever. Ultimately it’s committee’s decision to make, but I think that they’d be hard-pressed to find any movie that doesn’t have some sort of terrible moment or violence in it. Sh*t, I mean even Bambi had the mother die in cold blood.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I urge you to find a way to watch it legally this weekend. It’s incredible, crude, and so funny I guarantee you that you’ll listen to my next movie review. If you can’t wait until then, though, here’s the scene in question.
