Late at night, a regular supermarket turns into a thriving city in this charming animated tale. Dex Dogtective (voiced by Charlie Sheen), Daredevil Dan (voiced by Wayne Brady) and Sunshine Goodness (voiced by Hilary Duff) hang out at the Copa-Banana, the hottest nightclub in the produce section. But when Lady X (voiced by Eva Longoria) and her evil minions try to take over, it looks as if the residents of Marketopolis are headed for a food fight.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Foodfight! is a bizarre 2012 animated comedy. A cartoon frog passes gas unashamedly, and that pretty much sets the tone for a movie that seems to want to serve two incompatible audiences -- young kids but also sexual innuendo-aware adults with nostalgia for the golden era of classic film. Expect lots of bloodless cartoon violence, suggestive dialogue couched in G-rated language ("I'd like to butter your muffin") and paraphrases from Casablanca. Language includes "butt-ugly," "you cold-farted itch," "pompous pip-squeak," and "whack job." The Brand X army is portrayed as a large group of goose-stepping Nazis. Brand-name food and home products normally seen in supermarkets are featured here as characters, including Mr. Clean, Chef Boyardee, Sunshine raisins, Mrs. Butterworth's syrup, Keebler elves, and Starkist's Charlie the Tuna.
- Sexual Content
- Daredevil Dan considers himself a ladies' squirrel, and he lasciviously approaches females saying such things as "I'd like to butter your muffin" and "Sweetcakes, I like your packaging." A character who looks like a Barbie doll, complete with torpedo-shaped breasts, dances against Dex seductively. Someone says, "I love a good violation." Someone wants to "play Lick the Icing with Sweetcakes."
- Characters fall from great heights. A plane explodes. Warring factions catapult various foods at each other. Cartoon characters get into a barroom brawl. A weasel is pushed off the top of a building, and a wrecking ball lands on him. An evil general threatens to kill someone and adds, "That would be lots of fun." The Brand X army is portrayed as a large group of goose-stepping Nazis. A dragon is hung upside down and beaten by Brand X soldiers. A Brand X honcho threatens to hit someone with a ham hock. Launched bubble gum brings down enemy planes. A bad guy threatens to cut off a frog's long tongue. Characters are killed in the war but brought back to life at the end.
- "Butt-ugly," "you cold-farted itch," "pompous pip-squeak," "whack job."
- Social Behavior
- When in doubt, do the right thing. Don't give up. Don't let your friends down.
