Critic Reviews for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
Determined to have their cake and eat it too, writer-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller first invite us to revel in ice cream mountains and nacho cheese fountains, then clobber us with ham-handed nutritional moralism.
So what could be better than an endless supply of jellybeans and ice cream? Only a multiplex permanently stocked with smart, sweetly silly family films like this one.
It takes an iron stomach to watch this stuff and not feel nauseated.
No comedy should come bogged down with so many Important Life Lessons.
Food has never been funnier than it is in the spirited, animated family film Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.
But it's fun, it has some good messages and what kid won't enjoy seeing pancakes flatten a roof and an ice-cream blizzard that you can eat while you play in it? Especially when it's presented in colorful 3-D splendor?
Audience Reviews for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
Met the expectation I had from it. Quite uninteresting, that is. Actual Rating: -5/5
A hapless inventor develops a machine that makes food rain from the sky, rejuvenating his hometown's formerly sardine-based economy; things predictably get out of control. Luscious showers of cheeseburgers and avalanches of pizza, with a drizzle of smart, funny writing and a side of Mr. T as an overzealous cop make this a smorgasbord of entertainment.
has its moments, but not enough to make this stand out
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Quotes
|Mayor Shelbourne:||This hellhole is too small for me, Brent. I wanna be big. I want people to look at me and say, "That is one big mayor." So that's why this has to work. It HAS to work, otherwise I'm just a tiny mayor of a tiny town, full of sardine-sucking knuckle-scrapers.|
|"Baby" Brent:||But not me, right?|
|Mayor Shelbourne:||Oh, no. Not you, Brent. You've always been like a son to me.|
|Flint Lockwood:||When it rains, you put on a coat. Of SPRAY-ON SHOES!|
|Fran Lockwood:||Oh oh and peanut butter right?!|
|Sam Sparks:||No way! I'm severely allergic to peanuts..|
|Fran Lockwood:||Hey, me too...|
