Wannabe inventor Flint Lockwood has finally made a breakthrough: he has created a machine that makes it rain food! Kidzworld reviews Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs!

All his life, Flint Lockwood wanted to be an inventor. As a kid, he created all sorts of inventions, from spray on shoes to hair-unbalder. Unfortunately, every creation was a flop. Now as an adult, Flint is attempting his biggest and best invention yet, something that will help his island of Swallow Falls become more than just Sardine town. He creates a machine that turns water into food.


Invention Gone Haywire

During the unveiling of the Mayor’s latest attempt to make Swallow Falls a tourist town, Flint’s invention goes haywire. It destroys the Mayor’s sardine amusement park and shoots up into the clouds. While wallowing in his grief, Flint witnesses the beginning of a miracle[/kwlink]—it starts to rain hamburgers! For the first time in his life, Flint’s invention works!


Raining Food

The town celebrates his wonderful invention, stuffing their faces with the most delicious food imaginable. And no one is more enthusiastic than the Mayor. He wants to use Flint’s creation to make Swallow Falls a tourist attraction. But the more food it rains, the more dangerous the weather is becoming.


Bigger Isn’t Always Better

Soon food grows bigger and bigger until the rain becomes the perfect food storm. A spaghetti tornado rips through town, destroying homes and businesses. Donuts and corn cobs the size of buildings roll through the streets like giant bulldozers. People are running for their lives. But when his computer is destroyed, Flint must fly straight into the eye of the storm to stop his evil creation.


The Bottom Line

Based on the book Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, this film is action-packed and hilarious. With the giant food and amazing effects, it’s definitely a film you need to see on the big screen.

In the end Rapunzel and the guy fall in love. But in Brave she didn't need a man to be happy. She was the strong one not a prince. She was smart and confident. I love that. So even though Tangled was really funny i will always pick Brave. That's a really good point ^-^ I still like Tangled better. The plot made more sense and was better written (in my opinion though) I thought the humor was better as well; definitely a lot less crude! Also, the lack of songs in Brave bummed me out... it is a Disney Princess Movie :/ (Don't argue that it's Pixar!) Wait you think because it's a Disney movie there has to be singing!? Really that's dumb. Ok that Iis just my opinion. But really that's dumb.  No, that's not what I think. They're are plenty of Disney movies without singing. I just would appreciate that aspect -especially in a Disney Princess movie, but it's okay.
