      Movie Info

      When hard times hit Swallow Falls, its townspeople can only afford to eat sardines. Flint Lockwood, a failed inventor, thinks he has the answer to the town's crisis. He builds a machine that converts water into food, and becomes a local hero when tasty treats fall from the sky like rain. But when the machine spins out of control and threatens to bury the whole world under giant mounds of food, Flint finds he may have bitten off more than he can chew.

      Audience Reviews for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

      • Aug 02, 2016

        A young, oddball inventor solves his ocean city's sardine surfeit by masterminding a machine that precipitates any kind of food, only to fall victim to arrogance, greed, and gluttony. Chockful of groanworthy food puns, sweet familial understanding, and well-intentioned lessons about being yourself and following your dreams.

        For something so far out of my wheelhouse, I do have a certain level of appreciation for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

        A hapless inventor develops a machine that makes food rain from the sky, rejuvenating his hometown's formerly sardine-based economy; things predictably get out of control. Luscious showers of cheeseburgers and avalanches of pizza, with a drizzle of smart, funny writing and a side of Mr. T as an overzealous cop make this a smorgasbord of entertainment.

        From the makers of 'The Lego Movie' this is a fun animation and more adult-orientated than films like 'Rio' and 'Frozen'. I enjoyed the mad scientist story and the father/son relationship. The whole thing is missing a major villain character (the mayor isn't evil enough) but the set-up is enough to entertain throughout and the whole thing looks great. Lots of fun.
