Humorous, fun and sometimes downright odd family flick, that doesn't address some of its thematic implications.

The concept might not be as high as alien invasion or mouthy mammoths, nor the art on the level of Pixar or Miyazaki or Selick, but in terms of sheer fun, this is the one to beat in '09.

This slick, computer-animated family flick, in eye-popping digital 3D, not only matches the visual excesses of Roland Emmerich's 2012, but is also much more successful in paying homage to the disaster genre through the use of humour and wit.

What's this? A deliciously witty, wildly imaginative and visually spectacular 3D animated film that's not by Pixar studios!? How did this happen?

A seriously delicious and imaginative concept takes flight in this whimsical animated film where food, glorious food rains from the heavens and reminds us to believe in yourself and accept who you are.
October 22, 2009
Almost relentlessly energetic and loony, bursting with random sight gags and subtle, whip-smart comedy.

An original and highly recommended outing for animation fans. Dads can even take their kids...

(N)oodles of good, goofy, family-friendly fun.

After UP set a standard for character development, CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS falls short.
October 2, 2009
One of the year's better animated movies.

Where Pixar would have made a nutritious main course out of the character issues in Lord and Miller's script, "Meatballs" skips them in favor of dessert.

This film is uneven, but it has enough effective humor, good characters and nice 3D animation to make an entertaining movie.

When I dismiss many children's movies as being insipid and low-brow, I mean they actually insult their young audiences. Not this one.
September 25, 2009
funny and at times wonderfully weird, and even has a few meaningful things to say
September 24, 2009
...parents are advised to flip a coin, with the loser having to take the youngsters to go see it

... enjoyable kid stuff ...
September 23, 2009
Silly and surprisingly funny, Meatballs is light on its feet and quick-witted, with a bonus self-awareness that most family flicks confuse with irony.
September 22, 2009
I'm a sucker for a good kids' flick and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs really delivers the goods.
September 21, 2009
A fun film but not a funny one. It needed more big laughs to keep the children entertained.
