Swallow Falls is a happy little town, but the sardine industry is in deep water and the mayor needs a new way to attract tourists to jumpstart the economy. Enter Flint Lockwood, a bumbling but good-hearted inventor whose last few inventions (including rat-birds—icky little creatures with the beak of a bird and the tail of a rat) didn’t work out the way he intended.


Flint finally succeeds with the FLDSMDFR—also known as the Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator—a machine that can turn water into food! The publicity brings lots of money into Swallow Falls—the mayor even changes the name to Chewandswallow! Everything’s going well until Flint notices the food raining from the sky seems to be getting bigger—and so are the townspeople. Suddenly Flint’s awesome machine has a bad aftertaste.

Special Features

The Blu-ray has a fun “splat” button feature that lets you throw food at the screen while the movie is playing. A Recipe for Success highlights the behind the scenes work that went into making Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and Key Ingredients introduces you to the voice talents behind the characters.There’s also Flint’s Food Fight Game and some sing-alongs, music videos and extended scenes.

The Bottom Line

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs sandwiches some good lessons between the spaghetti tornadoes and attacking gummy bears. When Flint finally accepts himself as he is, he learns that if you’re cool with yourself, other people will be too. The food falling from the sky parallels our easy access to food—it’s up to us to make healthy choices!

You try to turn on the lamp, but the power is out. You explore the house.Several of the doors are locked, and there seem to be no beds, couches, or any other furniture to sit on. At last you come to a room that is not locked. You open the door and see something you did not expect.The room is bare save for three chairs. One has knives embedded in it, one is an electric chair, and the other one is swarmed with spiders. You are tired after searching for a place to stay and desire to sit and rest. Which chair do you choose? The electric chair cuz it won't kill you unless you flip a switch lol
