Meanwhile, lifelong bully Brent (voice of Andy Samberg) relishes in tormenting Flint like he did when they were kids, and Mayor Shelbourne (voice of Bruce Campbell) schemes to use Flint's latest invention -- a device designed to improve everyone's lives -- for his… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Determined to have their cake and eat it too, writer-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller first invite us to revel in ice cream mountains and nacho cheese fountains, then clobber us with ham-handed nutritional moralism."
‑ Cliff Doerksen, Chicago Reader
"No comedy should come bogged down with so many Important Life Lessons."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"Where else can you find the varied likes of Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, Bruce Campbell, and--yes--Mr. T together and all on their A game?"
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"The humour in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is often anarchic, wicked, random and very funny. This is a fun film with a lot of spirit."
‑ Thomas Caldwell, Cinema Autopsy
"Spaghetti has never been more terrifying, Gummi bears more menacing, nor the pleasures and perils of exploring the frontiers of science more vivid"
‑ Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
"So what could be better than an endless supply of jellybeans and ice cream? Only a multiplex permanently stocked with smart, sweetly silly family films like this one."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Food has never been funnier than it is in the spirited, animated family film Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"The test for a decent family film is whether the kids want to watch it again, and both of mine were ready for a rerun the very next day."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Visually imaginative and ethically rich, the apocalypse has never been as tasty as served in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"It occurs to me that the pace and tone of the comedy is actually pretty sophisticated -- perhaps too much so for its supposed intended audience."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"It takes an iron stomach to watch this stuff and not feel nauseated."
‑ Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"But it's fun, it has some good messages and what kid won't enjoy seeing pancakes flatten a roof and an ice-cream blizzard that you can eat while you play in it? Especially when it's presented in colorful 3-D splendor?"
‑ Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News
"Grownups will enjoy the witty dialog and zippy script, especially when it makes playful nods to big sci-fi popcorn romps like Twister, The Day After Tomorrow, Armageddon and Star Wars."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs might not be as charming or heartfelt as anything from Pixar film, but bar Up, it's the best animated film of the year so far."
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"It's rare for a family film to deliver the goods with both story and visuals, but this insanely fun and fast-paced flick doesn't skimp on either."
