'''''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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* {{Expy}}: Lieutenant X is reminiscent of [[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Dr. Frank-N-Furter]], and General X brings to mind Napoleon Bonaparte. Dex Dogtective is an amalgamation of IndianaJones, [=McGruff=] The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McGruff_the_Crime_Dog Crime Dog]] and HumphreyBogart's character from {{Casablanca}}.

**** With the exception of Sunshine Goodness who, if you look at her name and the fact that she shills raisins, is likely suposed to be an expy of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun-Maid ''Sun-Maid Raisins'']] girl (despite looking ''nothing'' like her and being vaguely feline).



** Which subverts it a bit.



** That was probably the whole purpose of [[spoiler:Mr. Clipboard]]



* MissingTrailerScene: The trailer has a Chester Cheetah cameo that's not in the final film.
** Arguably, all of the original trailer could count since it was made with the footage that got stolen, none of which made it into the finished movie.

** Many other instances, such as Cheasel T. Weasel and Vlad Chocul, due in part to multiple backers dropping their support of the film.
