It’s difficult to talk about Foodfight!. It’s difficult to even think about Foodfight!. This is a serious contender for all-time most grotesque film ever made. Everything about it is completely, monstrously ugly. The animation is ugly, as though every character was specifically designed to be as repellent as possible. The sexual innuendo is ugly, with weird jokes about “melting in your mouth, not in your hand”, giant bouncing breasts, and dominatrix-style outfits liberally peppered through a movie that’s supposed to be for children. The product placement is ugly, with brand mascots being shoved in the audience’s faces with no shame whatsoever. The mere fact that an estimated $45–65 million was spent on this atrocity is ugly. There’s some solace to be found in its only making $73,706 at the box office, but it’s still not enough to make up for Foodfight!‘s existence in the first place. A sheer nightmare.
