The most delicious event since macaroni met cheese. Animated.

"Cloudy is smart, insightful on a host of relationship dynamics, and filled with fast-paced action.  Ernest Hardy, LA Weekly
"Wise and respectful of its audience, "Cloudy" thus never stops the fun.  Matthew Sorrento, Film Threat

Editor's Note
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 brainy weathergirl Sam Sparks (voice of Anna Faris) as they attempt to discover why the rain in their small town has stopped while food is falling in its place. Meanwhile, lifelong bully Brent (voice of Adam Samberg) relishes in tormenting Flint just as 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.

Expert Review Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - DVD Review
By: Bill Gibron filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 12/25/2009 3:42 PM
In the realm of unforeseen cinematic surprises, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is nothing short of a delight. Judging it solely against other CG titles that have come out recently, you'd expect the same old thing: stunt voice casting randomly inserting a bunch of recycled pop culture quips into a narrative so scattered it could use some celluloid Ritalin. In other words, all flash and no real family film value. However, just like Kung Fu Panda last year, the creators behind this exciting, exuberant adventure -- writers/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller -- defy expectations while delivering one of the best non-Pixar animated titles ever. Flint Lockwood (voiced by Bill Hader) has always dreamed of being an important inventor....read the full review

Los Angeles Times
"[F]irst-time writer-directors Phil Lord and Christopher MIller conjure up a veritable blizzard of ways of channeling chow, carrying it off with enough brio to send audiences into a food coma." 09/18/2009

The Onion A.V. Club 8 of 10
Freely adapted from the 1978 children's book by Judi and Ron Barrett, the new animated movie Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs feels like a warning from another era. A parable about the perils of living amid abundance, it arrives at a moment when even Sesame Street has had to address the seemingly endless economic recession. Hey, message already received, the hard way. Of course, kids probably won't mind. And if they're lucky, they may even get a chance to appreciate its warning about the dark side of easy living...It also helps that the film, co-directed and co-scripted by first-time feature-makers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, doesn't get too bogged down with moralizing. It flits swiftly between easy-but-funny sight gags involving giant food, send-ups of disaster-film cliches, and endearing characters brought vividly to life by a pleasing visual style, plus funny vocal performances from Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Bruce Campbell, and Mr. T. Hader plays a hapless geek with a lifelong gift for building inventions that almost work. His luck changes -- and with it, the luck of his island town, whose sardine-based economy has been hit hard by the revelation that, as one headline puts it, "Sardines Are Super Gross" -- when he unveils a machine that makes the sky rain whatever food he chooses. But the tremendous gift works largely to make his fellow citizens lazy, and it leaves Hader no happier than before, even with the arrival of a pretty weather reporter (Faris) who shares some of his nerdy obsessions...Between dispensing lessons about the important of staying industrious and the kids'-movie staple of staying true to yourself, Meatballs focuses on clever gags -- some involving a monkey with a voice translator that only reveals the shallowness of his interests, others featuring Andy Samberg as a man who's spent his whole life coasting on once having served as a sardine company's adorable baby mascot -- and some surprisingly touching stuff with Hader's inexpressive, uncomprehending dad (James Caan). It's a brisk, bright, winning effort, even though it already looks sadly out of touch with the times. - Keith Phipps
