Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Audience Reviews

Cubussoli Very very predictable, including the post credit scene !!!
SanEat A film with more than the usual spoiler issues. Talking about it in any detail feels akin to handing you a gift-wrapped present and saying, "I hope you like it -- It's a thriller about a diabolical secret experiment."
Calum Hutton It's a good bad... and worth a popcorn matinée. While it's easy to lament what could have been...
Fleur Actress is magnificent and exudes a hypnotic screen presence in this affecting drama.
bobby-maddox "Ever since he was a kid, Flint Lockwood was an inventor but not a very good one, seeing as how none of his inventions have turned out as planned. So, his father has him work in his bait shop full time. Not going to give up easily, Flint has one more invention up his sleeve, one that should create food out of water for the sardine overdosed population of the island where he lives. And like all the others, this one ends in failure, too, even destroying Sardineland, whose opening Sam Sparks, an intern from the Weather News Network, was covering. But then, there are signs of success... With animation that is less than satisfying and unimaginative, the best that could be said about ""Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs"" is that it does manage to be silly on occasion with one great joke. And with the exception of Bruce Campbell's fantastic vocal work, that's pretty much it.(Does he do a lot of this or did somebody else miss their calling?) While I do salute the movie for favoring intelligence, especially with women, it does not help that the so called hero is something of a jerk. And the central message surrounding overconsumption and the 'obesity epidemic' is severely heavy handed when considering that Flint's invention would have great potential for those parts of the globe where people are going hungry."
Shopaholic35 It's such a fun and creative concept, who wouldn't want to see delicious food falling from the sky. Seems nice in theory but I'm sure it would be pretty sticky and smell quite bad.Because it's so imaginative it makes up for the one-dimensional characters. They may not have a lot of personality but they certainly have a lot of heart. It's just one aspect but they don't make the movie for me.It's the animation that makes it a memorable classic family film. It's beautifully colourful and has a nice amount of intricate details. They have really made the effort to create a wonderful world that enchants you.
Taylor Kingston I really like this movie, it's hilarious and I seriously want that machine. To make food out of anything would be just awesome, and terribly fattening. But if you could make a machine to make food out of thin air, then you could probably make a machine to make you lose the weight you put on, from the food. I think the sequel to this movie is better, but this movie is great and you must watch it before the sequel to fully understand.This movie centers around Flint Lockwood, a young man who thinks he's a genius and is always inventing things. He lives in a community where basically the only food they have are sardines. But then Flint invents a machine to make food fall from the sky, like rain, so the town can have something good to eat, for once. When things get messy with the machine, this is after people build ice cream castles and have the time of their lives, Flint must shut the machine. Eventually, things go so wrong that Flint may not be able to save the town. Target Audience: Families and children.Who will like it? Basically anyone.Overall, I give this movie a 7 out of 10.
elrogrrl Cloudy with a Chance of Meat Balls is a really fun movie that the whole family can enjoy. There are a lot of jokes for the adults to like but the kids will also be glued to the screen for the whole thing, which is great.It's not something adults will love from start to finish but there are pretty much zero movies like that around any more, Frozen is probably the best example of that that I can come up with or a few of the best Pixar movies.The voice acting is really good and there is just a lot of great, zany, wacky fun.
