LOVEFiLM Review: Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (2009)

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.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was just heaps of fun, I found it original and hilarious at the same time which means this animation can certainly appeal to adults too.

The animation was cute and voice cast was perfect. I highly recommend this film as a break away from Pixar.
