So Sunday, we went to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. It wasn't showing in 3D at our local theater but that was fine. I liked it. It was very cute and funny. If you think it's going to be like the book, then think again. Flint Lockwood is a failed inventor until he invents a machine that can change water into food. When his invention is shot in the sky and it starts to rain food, everyone is excited until giant food starts to fall from the sky. The movie does include some of the iconic images from the book including the jello "sunset," pancakes on the school, and the roofless restaurant. The animation was very curvy and fluid.
The little man seemed to like it especially the giant gummy bears. And the little kids sitting next to me enjoyed it as well. There were some very funny parts that made the whole audience laugh and I really liked Sam Sparks, the TV weatherperson sent to cover the phenomenon.
