Flint, an aspiring inventor with few successful inventions, suddenly creates a machine that causes food to fall from the sky like rain. The invention helps turn around the fortunes of his hometown, but at the same time, dooms it.
Who is in it?
Phil Lord - Flint Lockwood
Anna Faris - Sam Sparks
After the Mayor gets a hold of the machine, he defies the warnings and continues to ask for food which eventually creates a tornado of spaghetti and meatballs that destroys Swallow Falls.
"Have you ever felt like you were a little bit different? Like you had something unique to offer the world, if you could just get people to see it. Then you know exactly how it felt to be me."
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is an OK film with a really, really, creative plot. Based off a children's book, the film offers a unique plot (if the title alone wasn't) that is definitely interesting enough to intrigue you.
The characters of Flint Lockwood is a brilliant one created by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, and as most good animated films do, it offers up life-lessons which can be taken away from his journey from aspiring inventor, to wildly successful inventor, to having to clean up his mess from arrogance and denial. It's the classic storyline arc that never gets old.
All in all, CWACOM is a recommended film that will entertain you for it's 90 minute running time. Nothing overly great, but at the same time, not too bad as well.
