I'm not sure why everyone is comparing "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" to other animated films like "Up", it just doesn't make sense. Is it simply because they're both CG films? They're not even competeing at the box office currently. With that logic in mind, I guess one should tell people not to watch Transformers 2 because District 9 was a better film this year? Ha!
I thought the movie was great! Kids and Adults were laughing alike, albeit at different times, but laughing just the same. Both clever and well timed comedic moments made this movie a definate must see for 2009 in my books.
