90 minutes

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is a much better animated movie in 3D than in the flat version. First of all because this is not your father’s 3D red and green lens cardboard glasses but Drew Carey type clear plastic glasses that really make the three dimensional effects in this movie really pop out. The falling food and other visual effects of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs add a lot to an otherwise decent story and movie.  It had been quite a while since I had so much fun watching a movie in a theatre and even longer since I did not feel ripped off by the high ticket price.

Flint Lockwood is a young inventor who lives with is widowed dad in a small fishing community. Everything   invents either fails or is a disaster. When the fishing industry collapses, the small town where   and his dad lives also collapses. A series of circumstances coming together make that   invents a machine that transforms water into food, the machine takes to the sky, and it starts raining food, lots of different food.

Throw in a weathergirl hiding a scientist’s mind and you have your basic love interest. Lots of stuff happens after that but who wants to be a spoiler?

This is overall a pretty good animated movie. Jokes are aimed at all audience ages so parents do not have to turn off their brain while the kiddies are enjoying themselves. The animation itself is quite good but it is the fact the movie is in 3D and that some scenes and many effects really exploit this that make Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs that much more fun and entertaining.
