    Synopsis


    Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
    Inspired by Ron and Judi Barrett's beloved children's book of the same name, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs follows inventor Flint Lockwood (voice of Bill Hader) and a brainy weathergirl (voice of Anna Faris) as they attempt to discover why the rain in their small town has stopped, and food is falling in its place. Meanwhile, lifelong bully Brent (voice of Andy Samberg) relishes in tormenting Flint like he did when they were kids, and Mayor Shelbourne (voice of Bruce Campbell) schemes to use Flint's latest invention -- a device designed to improve everyone's lives -- for his own personal gain. Mr. T voices by-the-books cop Earl Devereaux, and James Caan voices Flint's technophobe father, Tim. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Awful, awful, awful. . . but my kid loves it

      I waivered between giving this 2 or 3 stars. Went for 3 because, as much as I hated it, my little boy LOVED it. This is/was a GREAT children's book and we were really looking forward to seeing it. The movie, however, stinks. The actors do what they can with a stupid plot and the effects are cool for what they are. It's a little gross at times with everyone getting morbidly obese eating everything they want. With all that said, my six year old LOVES this movie. He liked that the main character is a crazy science guy and was totally into all the cool gadgets and effects. He's been waiting since we saw this in the theater to finally buy the thing. I'm letting him (with HIS money and with a coupon) but this is one that will be shown when friends are over or when I let him watch something alone. I already wasted two hours of my life watching it at the theater, I won't make that mistake again.

      First I was very skeptical about making this well known kids book as a movie. Although the transformation of father-son relationships in this movie has been there and done, thus so predictable, plot was pretty lovely, and jokes are very nice. I loved the Jell-O-Castle scene and its CGs, and needless to say in addition to the Jell-O Castle CGs, raining food from sky, and splat on the ground was well done. Most of all, the movie was successful 'cause, I believe Anna Faris was chosen for a voice actress for one of main characters.

      Bought this movie because of the digital copy to load into VUDU account for grandson. Realized after opening that the digital copy is expired! Since we opened it though it's too late to return. Best Buy should do a better job in online product description to let the consumer know that the digital is no longer any good and it should have a reduced price since it is a defective (due to expiration) product.

      I was a little upset after seeing Monsters VS Aliens because at least that movie set a great tone for what was going to come for 3D. I love the fact that things popped out the screen in Monsters vs Aliens. I didnt see not one thing pop out the screen on here and I feel it was a waste of my money. Im all about things popping out the screen. Thats why I spent $2,500 on the TV

      Excellent Family Movie

      Watched this many times in 3D and non-3D Excellent movie for kids and the family. Hilarious and will keep you laughing. Everything about this movie is about a person just trying to prove himself but keeps failing at the same time till an accidental overcharged invention changes everything for him and the small sardine town he lives in. A definite buy. You won't be disappointed.

      one of my favorite animated movies

      As a movie, I can not say much bad about this one. The concept and plot are wonderful. The voices are superb, and the animation looks fantastic. Sony has done a wonderful job with this movie. This was one of the earliest 3D blu-ray releases, and it still stands up as one of the best 3D animated releases to date. The 3D blu-ray houses the 2D and 3D versions of the film, so the 2D only version has a tad more extras than this one.

      I bought this for my 6 year old cousin, who said she liked the movie when she watched it at school. I figured I would buy something for her when I had a 5 dollar coupon and we looked for a reasonably priced film. When she saw this she said she had to have it! When she watched it, my mom and myself were also around and we both enjoyed it as well. Cute and different from the normal princess films she enjoys to watch.

      The movie was good but no 3D popping experience.

      Overall, it was a pretty good movie to watch; however, if you are looking for awesome 3D popping effects this is not the movie for you. I will say that watching the movie in 3D is definitely better than the standard TV mode however besides the raining sprinkles at the begininng of the movie no real 3D popping effects.
