    There's an animated film called Sausage Party on one of the networks this afternoon starring Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, and Kristen Wiig about processed meats seeking freedom from their human overlords. But when I first saw that title it gave me a whole different mental image.
    Anyone have any other examples of film titles that night be taken the wrong way?

    That's not misconstrued; you are SUPPOSED to think that way.

    Is there a reason the title Sausage Party left you disappointed?

    AFAIK the whole thing is awash with double entredes. And it was never intended to be a kid flick in the first place...

    Double entredes aren't quite that rare in the actual kid stuff either. A classic example:

    I just assumed since it was an animated film that it was for kids, 'cause I didn't watch it.

    ... you might want to do a bit of research on the subject of animated movies before you end up entertaining your kiddos with Dragon Knight or Magical Twilight... :p

    People need to learn that animation does not mean for kids.

    Sausage Party had a R rating where I live. I think the R means "Really bad" or "Rotten". It is a bad movie.
