Cloudy with Meatballs

I totally forgot to post a few movie reviews. On the flights to and from Hawaii, Delta gave us complimentary movies (normally they would just allow you to watch TV, but since there was no service over the Pacific, they would cover the cost for movies on the flights). On the way to Oahu I watched CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS. I really enjoyed it! Maybe it is because I like the animated, kid type movies, but I think mostly it was because it was a FUN movie! I would DEFINITELY recommend it if you haven't seen it!!

In 2009, Columbia Pictures' and Sony Pictures Animation's "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" will be the most delicious event since macaroni met cheese. Inspired by the beloved children's book, the film focuses on a town where food falls from the sky like rain. Bill Hader will voice Flint Lockwood, a young inventor who dreams of creating something that will improve everyone's life. Anna Faris takes on the role of Sam Sparks, a weathergirl covering the phenomenon who hides her intelligence behind a perky exterior. James Caan plays Tim Lockwood, Flint's technophobic father. Andy Samberg plays Brent, the town bully who has plagued Flint since childhood. Bruce Campbell plays Mayor Shelbourne, who figures out that Flint's invention can put the town, and more importantly himself, on the map. Mr. T plays the by-the-rules town cop Earl Devereaux, and Tracy Morgan takes on the role of Earl's rule-breaking son, Cal. [D-Man2010]

The timeless tale has been adapted from Ron and Judi Barrett's book, which illustrates a world where giant pancakes and pasta fall from the sky as a scientist tries to solve world hunger. However, things go terribly wrong when excess amounts of food overload cities and towns.
