Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Ethnic Scrappy: The overabundance of offensive caricatures in the film leads to a lot of these.
Family-Unfriendly Aesop: The name of one of the main heroines? Sunshine Goodness. And who is the villain? She is an ugly prune mascot that changed her body. Poor villain's product was never sold and so she somehow left to Brazil and created Brand X.
Genius Bonus: The entire film is an homage to Casablanca. Given how unlikely it is that the film's target audience has seen Casablanca, this leads to plenty of scenes that are more or less inexplicable (see: the random French national anthem near the end).
Hilarious in Hindsight: The scene where Mr. Clipboard stomps a bag of potato chips and declares "survival of the fittest" while there's shelves full of Wonder Bread behind him.
This isn't the first time Charlie Sheen voiced a dog either. He voiced Charlie in All Dogs Go to Heaven 2
Brand X is acting like the enemy team in Pokémon X
Idiot Plot: Seldom do any of these characters truly think.
It's Been Done: By the time this film was finally released a short French film called Logorama about a world entirely made up of real life brands and mascots had already been released, even winning an Academy Award!
The movie is highly quotable due to the overzealous amount of Narm it features. YMMV, but any party who watches it is bound to have an in-joke one point or another that originates from the movie's high-quotability.
Even the books released in anticipation for the film don't seem to give a crap. Compare the covers for these twobooks. Daredevil Dan's art is blatantly reused, and the characters on the first are just traced over from the 3D models, lifeless eyes and everything.
Uncanny Valley: In spades between Sunny's cold dead eyes, the hideous human shoppers and stiff-as-rocks or seizure-like movements from everyone in the cast. In the case of Mr. Clipboard's spastic movement it could be foreshadowing the fact that he's a robot.
WTH, Casting Agency?: Charlie Sheen as a canine Indiana Jones knockoff in a bad Casablanca homage? Wayne Brady as a Jive Turkey chocolate squirrel steering a bi-plane? Larry Miller as a Camp Gay cereal vampire? Jerry Stiller as what is, for all intents and purposes, a Nazi? Hey, why not?
