This movie took ten years and $65 million to make, and this pile of manure was all that came out of it. The entire movie is on YouTube under the title "Lets Watch: Food Fight!" where a guy named bobsheaux watches the entire movie, reviewing it as he goes - and watching it, you'll see exactly how bad and nonsensical it is.
This movie looks like it could have been done in less than a year. The animation looks worse than a 1995 video game as another reviewer put it. Especially watch the splatter and particle effects which look like they were made by a high school animation student.
And the jokes bobsheaux made throughout reviewing the movie were a lot funnier than the bad food puns in this movie. Thats all the jokes were
bad food puns, and farting jokes and basic slapstick. Hardy har har.
The characters are just not interesting, enough said.
The storyline, oh God the story. Just the basic premise of the story is bad - a grocery store comes to life at night, and it's about to be taken over by Brand X products which look like Nazis. (Just think Toy Story with the toys replaced by food icons like the Hawaiian Punch guy, Mr. Clean, Mrs. Butterworth, and Charlie Tuna.) I'm not kidding, they appeared in this movie along with the California Raisins! Can we say PRODUCT PLACEMENT?? And ugh, I don't even want to go into the so-called "logic" of the brands and their icons. Don't make me go into it, it was so confusing it gave me a headache.
And they actually have well known stars here like Charlie Sheen, Hillary and Hayley Duff, Eva Longoria, and Christopher Lloyd - yes, CHRISTOPHER LLOYD!! WHY?????? WHY???!!!!?? Oh God do I feel bad for them - every time they go grocery shopping now, THIS abomination will haunt their very thoughts. Poor chaps.
All in all, THIS MOVIE SUCKS MAJOR BALLS!!!! I swear when I go to Walmart now, this crap will be in my head... the YouTube video made it so much easier to sit through, thank you bobsheaux! 1/10
