When Flint Lockwood’s (Bill Hader) latest contraption accidentally destroys the town square and rockets up into the clouds, he thinks his inventing career is over. Then something amazing happens as delicious cheeseburgers start raining from the sky. His machine actually works! But when people greedily ask for more and more food, the machine starts to run amok, unleashing spaghetti tornadoes and giant meatballs that threaten the world! Now it’s up to Flint, with the help of weather girl Sam Sparks (Anna Faris) and Steve, his talking monkey assistant, to find some way to shut down the machine before the world is covered in super-sized meatballs!
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

My grandbabies love this movie. I could probably quote most of it myself as we have watched it over and over again.Published 2 days ago by Brella
I did not think that it was a good kid movie. The girl is smart, but feels that she needs to pretend to be dumb in order to be popular. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Glenn

|how many discs?||
No digital copy is burnable. The "Digital Copy" is really not any good. It only works on Sony hardware. Every other studio releases it through iTunes for iPod owners and Windows Media Player for the 100 Zune users.

|Price of Cloudy With a Chance for Meatballs Blu-ray||
no. . .and it pisses me off that I can get a 4 disc edition of Up with DVD and Digital Copy and a disc loaded with extras for $19.99 but this mediocre 2-discer comes in at $24.99??
I mean. . .I loved this movie, but my MAX price point for a blu-ray movie is $19.99.

|Does this have 2D on it?||
"Blu-ray 3D discs ALWAYS include the 2D version"
Simply not true.
The new OZ the great and powerful from Disney offers a 3d version that includes NO 2d version with it.
So you can not make an assumption a 3D version will include the 2d version.
