Q: it feels as if the makers threw everything at the wall and decided to see what sticks. (of a movie) とはどういう意味ですか?
A: This is a great question.

In short, this means that the movie makers just came up with as many different ideas as they could and picked at random, hoping the ideas turned out to be good ones not based on merit but by chance. It suggests that the movie makers really didn't know what they were doing, but they had to do SOMEthing. There was no rhyme or reason to the decisions they made.

For a long answer, I'll explain the metaphor itself so you can visualize it better:

Imagine all the tropes and ideas that the writers could come up with are each represented by one of those sticky slappy hand toys that stick to surfaces.

Then imagine the writers throw them all at a blank wall. Some of them sag off the wall and fall to the floor, but a few of them remain stuck to the wall.

The writers then add all the ideas that "stuck" to the wall to the script, solely because they just happened by chance to stay on the wall, instead of because they were good ideas or not.

Now by chance, some of the ideas that stuck might've been good ones, but they weren't chosen BECAUSE they were good ideas, they were chosen just because they happened to remain on the wall.

I hope this made sense 😅

Q: The makers of Crocs are owning up to the shoes' "ugly" rep by adding tiny fanny packs -- yes, fanny packs -- to the heel.

What does 'are owning up' and 'rep' mean in the above context?
“Own up” means to admit to something.

“An honest person will always own up to their mistakes.” (They will admit when they make a mistake)

“Rep” is short for reputation, which is a commonly held belief(s) or opinion(s) about someone or something. (It can be more than one belief/opinion)

“English has a reputation among Japanese people for being difficult to learn.” (Many Japanese people believe that English is hard to learn)

So in other words, the makers of Crocs are indirectly admitting that they know that people think their shoes are ugly by attaching another famously ugly fashion accessory (the fanny pack) to the heels.
