Just when you thought the animated film market was taking a break from overachieving, Sausage Party came to town and topped August's record for an animated film opening. While some might be surprised by this result, we can see why Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's latest collaborative effort brought in a healthy $33.6 million at the box office.

Come to think of it, there are five good reasons for the success of Sausage Party, and we're about to share them with you. So tie on your napkin, and dig in, because it's time to learn what's in this sausage.

The August Release Date Was Perfect For A Subversive Movie

Over the past 10 years, August has been a hell of a month for subversive comedy hits to open up. With films like Talladega Nights, Tropic Thunder, The Other Guys, and We're The Millers all taking the crown as the top film of August in their respective years of release, the month has been consistently primed for this very type of comedy. However, considering properties like Guardians of the Galaxy and Suicide Squad are also seen as subversive in their respective comic universes, their success also helps bolster Sausage Party's win. The film is in good company with all of these winners who went from risky and untested concepts to established, and in some cases record breaking winners.
