John & Becky’s Movie Review of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

cloudymeatballsBecky and I took the kids to see the new kid’s movie Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs this Weekend at the Kerasotes theater in Castle Rock, CO. The Yahoo website at Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs describes the movie as follows:

“A scientist tries to solve world hunger only to see things go awry as food falls from the sky in abundance.”

The Review
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is a new film based on a popular children’s book. The story is fun, the animation is pretty good and since our children have all read the book they loved it. It’s definitely totally for kids, but Becky and I both liked it too.

It has a great message about persevering and being careful about fame and fortune. The main character has a strange relationship with his Dad after his Mom has passed away. He is a zany inventor with some incredibly stupid inventions with this big one becoming the huge hit to save the town when it starts raining food based on his computer system. As the film progresses things go wrong and the story is about how he handles the situation.

We all liked this movie, it’s done close to $30 million at the box office, so it’s a big hit. The kids liked it more than we did, but we enjoyed it with them. Conroy went and saw it a second time with his buddies.
