Judi and Ron Barrett's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a much-loved, whimsical book about a tiny island where food falls from the sky like rain. The book serves as a jumping-off point for Sony's animated, digital 3-D Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs which is not so much a retelling of the book as an exploration of what makes food rain from the sky on a small island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Flint (Bill Hader), a clever young inventor with a reputation for creations gone awry, has recently completed a machine that he claims will turn water into food. Like his past failed inventions, Flint's new food-converting machine doesn't work as planned, and on its initial test run it ends up getting launched into the sky where clouds form and begin to rain cheeseburgers. The falling burgers destroy the Swallow Falls community's latest attempt to bolster its failing, sardine-dependent economy, but the Mayor's (Bruce Campbell) initial fury quickly turns to greedy anticipation as he begins to realize that food falling from the sky could serve as an innovative tourist draw. As the entire town is caught up re-defining itself as "Chew and Swallow," only Flint's father (James Caan) remains skeptical of his son's invention. Greed leads to some very strange weather events like spaghetti twisters and extra-giant food which, while providing a huge career opportunity for brainy weather intern Sam Sparks (Anna Faris) who's masquerading as an air-headed television personality, also threaten to destroy the town and its inhabitants. In the end, only the collaborative efforts of Flint, his father, and Sam can save the town of Chew and Swallow from certain destruction by the out of control invention. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a funny, imaginative film that's well-animated and immensely entertaining for kids and adults. Rated PG for brief mild language, but appropriate for most ages 5 and older. --Tami Horiuchi

For adults, tt's watchable, a few funny moments, but more like one of those comedy computer animed kids movies that isn't good enough to be anything more than that. Certainly nothing like the standard of Kung Fu Panda/Toy Story/Nemo/etc. If you've seen the dull and downright awful Monsters vs Aliens, I'd say Meatballs is somewhere in between - a borderline OK watch, but nothing more.

For kids, it's a fun movie, as there's alot going on visually (even some of the characters moving around can be entertaining for kids).

Watched it yesterday and really enjoyed it. It's pretty light, but it's funny and entertaining the whole way through. Not quite up there with the very best of Pixar, but that's hardly a criticism. I'd say it's most comparable to How To Train Your Dragon. And I'm no kid either.

Very hot for £3.99.

This was the surprise find for me last year. My favourite animated film of 2009. Even more than Coraline and the crowd favourite... UP (which i thought was over-rated). Well worth £3.99. Will snap it up when the Blu-ray is about £6-7

Have watched all the films mentioned and have to say this is clearly better. Wittier and far more original, this is the best kids film I've seen for years.

I agree, this is my favourite animated movie. It's also very cleaver and witty. It's so funny that almost every scene makes me laugh.

its about a tenner so far. the 3d one is THE 3d demo disc which is giving rise to the idea that its an wonderfully epic animated film so i dont see the prices coming down before xmas!

had some great funny moments tho, the special features are worth a look especially people who want to hear what Mr T. sounds like when he giggles. honestly i'm not making it up!
