Now, I don’t run about town screaming, “THIS IS THE GREATEST CGI FILM STARRING CHARLIE SHEEN AS A TALKING DOG DETECTIVE NAMED DEX DOGTECTIVE” every day, but when I do: you know I mean it. Foodfight! is the greatest CGI film starring Charlie Sheen, etc. etc., and not only the Coked-Up One, but also Chris Kattan as Polar Penguin, Wayne Brady as Daredevil Dan, Harvey Fierstein as Fat Cat Burglar, and Hilary and Haylie Duff as Sunshine Goodness and Sweet Cakes, respectively. According to the movie’s website:
FOODFIGHT! takes place in the supermarket at night when the lights go out and all the people leave. Then, magically, the grocery store transforms into a city: the boxes become buildings, the aisles turn into streets. The Chinese food aisle looks like China Town, the Italian food aisle looks like Venice, and so on.
Then out from every door of this ‘marketropolis’ comes two types of characters: ones you already know – some of the most famous characters in the world, like Mr. Clean, Charlie the Tuna, Mrs. Butterworth and more; and ones you are going to meet, and the actual stars of the movie. These include Dex Dogtective (Charlie Sheen), the super sleuth and head of the USDA (United Supermarket Defense Association); Daredevil Dan (Wayne Brady), the world’s worst flying squirrel stuntman; the sweet and lovable Sunshine Goodness (Hilary Duff); and the villainess and seductive Lady X (Eva Longoria). They all hang out at the Copa-Banana, the hottest nightclub in town (in the produce section of course). However, all’s well until Brand X moves into town, and its evil LADY X and her minions try to take over.
The only way to stop them is…yes – A FO0DFIGHT! (Via)
If you go to the source link, you’ll notice that the website is archived. That’s because Foodfight! was supposed to come out in December 2003, around the same time as The Last Samurai, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Paycheck. It didn’t. It was pushed back to 2005. Nothing. Then, to 2009. Still bupkis, much to the delight of Chris Kattan’s nephews, who didn’t want an exclusive Foodfight! screening as their Christmas present. It was finally released in the U.S. for the first time…this week…on DVD only.
