** 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.

* AmbiguouslyJewish: Dex's faith is revealed quickly at the ending (apparently, all kosher foods have Jewish ikes).
** Don't forget about the big-nosed nasal decongestant mascot Dr. Si Nustrix.

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.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Then again, given the quality of this movie, and by extension its impressions of famous actors like HarrisonFord and HumphreyBogart, some would argue harm ''was'' done. Fans of {{Casablanca}} and IndianaJones will weep every time Dex is onscreen. And try to find one PeterLorre fan who doesn't fly into a rage when the Weasel utters "You despise me don't you?" revealing who he's supposed to be a parody of.

'''''Foodfight!''''' is a CGI-animated film which tried to do ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' or ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' with advertising mascots. Like ''WesternAnimation/{{Delgo}}'', it barely had a release at all. It is notorious for its long and TroubledProduction, which started way back in 2002, which entailed, among other things, the theft of the disks containing the animation, so that the production had to start again from scratch. [[DevelopmentHell The process of licensing and negotiating with rights-holders for the many mascots took years]]. The film was completed in 2009. It had an unceremonious limited release in Europe in 2011, and a Video On Demand and DVD release in North America in 2013. With much of the budget being blown on the licensing, AllStarCast and the do-over, the film's animation uses a lot of poorly applied motion capture and questionable rendering.

* TakeThat: Brands that refused to let the makers use their characters were replaced with offensive caricatures with barely changed names.
