When the supermarket closes at night, the contents inside come to life! The shop becomes a living world for Dex Dogtective and all other creatures inside it at night time. However, with the new Brand X coming into the store, things take a turn for the worst.
The creators intended to animate the film in a very cartoonish "squash and stretch" style, like the classic Looney Tunes shorts. After the hard drives containing the unfinished film were stolen, they decided to complete the film using motion capture. The very primitive method used in the film resulted in noticeably choppy animation, and left many characters with extremely limited facial expressions and barely emoting eyes. The movie kept "squash and stretch" for certain characters, most notably Cheasel T. Weasel. However, due to the limitations of the animation software, that also produced lackluster results.

Foodfight! is a cynical, cheap, patronizing, lifeless, lazy, unfunny, tasteless, shoddy, disrespectful, offensive-to-anyone-with-a-brain piece of unmitigated garbage, sure, but it's much more than that.
Because it is meant to be entertainment aimed at children, and because its message amounts to nothing more than "BUY OUR BRANDS, OUR BRANDS LOVE YOU, YOU LOVE OUR BRANDS, EAT OUR FOOD, EAT, EAT, EAT, EAT, EAT..." Foodfight! is not just a bad movie.
Foodfight! is PURE EVIL.
So far, the movie has only made $73,000 on a (shocking) $65 million budget. I guess there is some justice in the world.
Ten years ago, when Threshold Entertainment's hard drives were stolen, writer/director/producer Lawrence Kasanoff called it an act of "industrial espionage." I salute the brave souls who actively hindered the production of this film. You fought for the brain cells of children everywhere. I think watching even fifteen minutes of this movie has made me stupider.
Don't just skip this movie. Burn it, then bury it in a desolate field somewhere. It deserves to die the worthless drop of despicable piddle it is.
Also, *¢% Larry Kasanoff.
