The story concerns a grocery store that comes to life at night when people are not around. Dex Dogtective (Creator/CharlieSheen) is a top agent of the [[FunWithAcronyms United Supermarket Defense Association]] which keeps the aisles safe from crime as well as running a club called the Copa-Banana where fellow advertising icons ("Ikes" for short) can hang out such as Charlie the Tuna, Mr. Clean and the California Raisins. After his beloved Sunshine Goodness (Music/HilaryDuff) vanishes without a trace, he ends up stepping out of the game only to be brought back in when a mysterious "Brand-X" has emerged in the grocery store by the machinations of a Mr. Clipboard (Creator/ChristopherLloyd) and Icons are disappearing or being murdered. With the help of his sidekick Daredevil Dan (Wayne Brady), Dex must uncover the truth behind Brand-X and its FemmeFatale leader Lady X (Eva Longoria) and rally a resistance in order to prepare for well, a [[TitleDrop Food Fight]].

** WebVideo/JonTron hazards a guess in his review that this is the main reason why the film was ever completed, so that they could at least cash in on all the rampant ProductPlacement.

** WebVideo/JonTron hazards a guess in his review that this is the main reason why the film was ever completed, so that they could at least cash in on all the rampant ProductPlacement. Apparently, though, Threshold wasn't paid by the brands; instead, the companies were expected to promote the movie when it was released, which backfired considering the movie never got a wide theatrical release.

Added DiffLines:

** The film's version of the Chiquita Banana lady is a fat bartender.
** The [[IncrediblyLamePun chip-faced]] pirate that Dex meets at the bar is the mascot for a brand of chips, and more than likely a substitute for the pirate on the Pirate's Booty brand of puffed rice.
** Vlad Chocul is an obvious stand-in for Count Chocula, both of them being chocolate cereal vampires. However, Vlad is also AmbiguouslyGay and has a serious attraction to chocolate people.
