Earlier in the film, schoolyard tyrant Ms. Trunchbull (Pam Ferris) doles out the mother of all food-related punishments when she makes poor Bruce Bogtrotter (Jimmy Karz) consume an entire chocolate cake in front of the whole school. Thankfully, the Trunch later suffers a punishment befitting her crime: being chased out of the school by an army of angry, food-wielding grade-schoolers who pummel the evil headmistress as she cowers and flees. Bogtrotter, appropriately, gets the last laugh, shoving a hearty helping in her face. It’s less food fight than a food smackdown.
