Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: Trailer
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs: A well-rounded PARTY MOVIE
Food: it keeps you alive and brings people together…it is the stuff of PARTY. In this sense, CCM is a natural candidate for a party film…BUT IS IT ANY GOOD??
The story is simple enough. A mechanically-inclined dude lives in the middle of nowhere with only anchovies for food. He decides to build a water-to-food machine that can, you guessed it, turn WATER INTO ANY FREAKIN FOOD HE WANTS. I’ve heard enough, show me the movie.
A lot of people loved this book growing up (and probably still do), so it’s not hard to convince people to give this a try. Animated films are getting less and less of a rep as kid-stuff and this flick is a perfect example of how awesomely entertaining they can be.
The animation/modelling is top notch, everything looks fantastic and it’s a real treat to watch. The dialogue is hilarious, featuring a great celebrity cast (Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Bruce Campbell (somehow), and yes, even Mr T).
If you’re looking for a great movie with UNIVERSAL appeal, this is one of those crowd-pleasers that are guaranteed to make your PARTY MOVIE NIGHT a hit.
WARNING: don’t even attempt this flick unless you have snacks handy. it’s painful and may lead to tv-screen-licking.
