Description

Family animation featuring the voices of Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan and Mr T. Flint Lockwood (Hader) is a fairly unsuccessful amateur scientist who appears to have developed a device that will bring an end to world hunger. Unfortunately his invention, which causes food to rain out of the sky, ends up causing more trouble than good as his town is flooded with more food than people know what to do with. Flint and weather girl Sam (Faris) must try and figure out what has gone wrong and save their town from disaster.

Synopsis
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.

"[With] 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." -- Grade: B
Keith Phipps (17 Sep 2009, )
Box Office
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] hysterically funny and wildly clever new 'toon that could just turn out to be the most purely entertaining and inventive animated comedy of the year."
Pete Hammond (17 Sep 2009, )
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."
(18 Sep 2009, )
New York Times
"Parents will enjoy tracking the endless stream of movie and television sendups..."
New York Times Critic (18 Sep 2009, )
USA Today
3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] surprisingly savory treat....Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have written an engaging and comically absurd story with subtle messages, more sophisticated than what usually is offered in animated fare."
Claudia Puig (18 Sep 2009, )
Washington Post
“[A]ny moviegoers possessed of funny bones will laugh their fool heads off at CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS.”
