This Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs review is a fishing metaphor

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs review


This movie is stuffed full of sight gags, puns, one-liners, and a nice multi-layered take on the whole “be yourself” message. How did I not love this the first two times I saw it?


I have a feeling the absence of Mr. T in the sequel is going to be my least favorite part. Somehow that feels like a double negative, but you know what I mean.


Even during my first and second viewings (you know, when I didn’t like it much), the one aspect I loved was the way it looks. The character designs are great, and the animation is so smooth.

Product Placement

They missed a good opportunity to cross promote with some limited edition real Baby Brent’s sardines, eh?

Jell-O doesn’t count, because it’s a regional dialect thing, like “Coke” or “Kleenex” sometimes are.


I hesitated to review this one for quite a while, and now I’m considering keeping the DVD.

  1. Because it’s the BEST MOVIE EVER!!! I told you it was awesome… glad you finally came around… it’s just so hilarious… the 2nd one was funny… but this one is still the best…

  2. Yeah, it’s pretty wacky stuff, but it’s also so much fun. Didn’t get a chance to see the sequel, but from what I’ve heard, it’s pretty much the same thing all over again. Good review.

  3. I loved this movie! I saw it last year (and read the book as a child) and just thought it was amazing. Far better than what I was expecting from a children’s animated film.

  4. I guess I will have to give it another look. Was not all that impressed the first time I saw it.

  5. So self aware and fun! The second one wasn’t quite as good but it had Barry the talking strawberry in it so that almost made it as good as the first.
