Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

In this animated chuckler, based on the children's book by Judy and Ron Barrett,  giant pancakes, pasta and hamburgers start to fall from the sky as an ambitious scientist (voiced by Bill Hader) tries to solve world hunger. However, things go terribly wrong when excess amounts of food overload cities and towns.

Stupid stories...

...don't take your kids if you want them smart. I have not watched it, but given what I read about the insanity and sheer stupidity of the story line, I surely won't. Because animated movies are mainly targeting kids does not mean they have to be empty of any substance. What's with America's obsession for bad food at large quantity? And what's that...

I question....

Heaps of fun

Agree with James Croot, this is one of the best kids films of 2009. Make sure you see it in 3D - it costs slightly more but the effect is amazing in this case. Lots of laughs, psychedelic colours, packed with detail. Had fun.

Eye-popping and mouth-watering in one, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs spins a 30-page children's book into a 90-minute all-you-can-laugh buffet.

The simple plot is as overextended as a compulsive eater’s waistline – but any movie bold enough to warn popcorn-munching filmgoers about obesity has to be applauded. Hell, they might not even finish the bucket…

If the filmmakers opt to make only light statements about junk food, obesity and solid waste, they at least leave the audience sated on a single serving of inspired lunacy.

There is clear definition between closer and further elements. I've seen a lot of 3-D recently, and in terms of technical quality, this is the best.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is probably the best family animation film I've seen in a while.

There are plenty of messages about being yourself, greed, and the rest, but it is all treated lightly. And that's the most refreshing thing about this animation, its originality and determination to be fun.

The movie's humor targets both kids and grown-ups with equal success, but, even with the presence of a mustache-fixated monkey, the main attraction here is the movie's vibrant 3-D animation and its perfect storm of foodie-friendly sight gags.

The splashy animation is well-executed but again a bit monotonous for a full-length feature.

Bright, silly and a good shout to entertain the whole family.
