Review – Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

I was surprised at how much I ended up enjoying this movie. I really shouldn’t have. It has all the classic crappy kids’ movie elements: mediocre computer animation, a silly story, a preachy message and plenty of action sequences tailor made for easy media convergence into a videogame version. But on top of the usual nonsense it also packs a steady stream of little clever touches that help the picture appeal to people with two digits in their ages and three in their IQs. A ne’er-do-well inventor comes up with a device that turns water into food. When it’s accidentally propelled into the sky, it starts raining food. It’s the small stuff rather than the big picture, but at least the small stuff is good for a change. Worth seeing
