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.

When in movie history has the girl ever revealed her true self and become more attractive to the hero by putting on spectacles and pulling back her hair?

The fantastic journey stems from the kids' housebound daydreaming - dinner time is inescapable, after all.

Dine on the 3-D if you can. Unlike most three-dimensional productions, the 3-D here enhances the story and the excellent animation but doesn't overwhelm them.

An amusing kidflick that entertains while serving up enlightening food-for-thought.

Wonderfully inspired - will probably be anathema only to vegetarians.

One of those equal-opportunity exercises that provides as much merriment for adults as for kids.

It's not only a super cute adventure, perfectly appropriate for kids of all ages, but the vocal talent is a bountiful buffet, to say the least.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a thoroughly delightful and hilarious 3-D animated comedy that'll definitely get you craving giant pancakes, gummi bears and yes, said meat.

It's unlike any animated feature you're going to see this year or any other. It's way out there in terms of concept and story, but in a good way.

While 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' would probably still be entertaining in a conventional 2D format, the story is a natural for 3D.

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's a veritable moral smorgasbord. Not.

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.

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?

...pure fun, start to finish. Fun. Laughing-my-ass-off, it's-raining-steak-and-gumballs, I-want-Steve-the-monkey-for-my-very-own fun. There was no huge life lesson, unless you count "diving into a giant gumball hill and eating it all makes you barf". Yeah
