When Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs came out in the theaters, Madison’s aunt had taken her to the movies to see it. She loved it! This is one of the few movies she’s actually been able to tell us everything that happened. I was disappointed that this movie wasn’t out for Christmas, but ecstatic when I found out this would be released January 5th! (This is 2 days before her birthday). Haven’t heard of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs yet? You can see the movie trailer here.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is about a boy wants to live his dream to be an inventor. When this boy’s (now a man), latest contraption accidentally destroys the town square and rockets up into the clouds, he thinks his inventing career is over. Then something amazing happens to Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader) as delicious cheeseburgers start raining from the sky. His machine actually works! However, everybody starts getting more and more greedy, it causes the food machine to go crazy. Spaghetti tornadoes and giant meatballs threaten the world! Now, if you want to know how it ends, you’ll have to watch the movie. 🙂
We were able to watch a copy of this DVD, and I have to admit that I think I like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs just as much as Madison. It has a catchy story and nobody breaks out in song. It has some great lessons in it — the best of which has to be “be true to yourself”. I gladly sat through watching it a second time in a row, because my kids wanted too. (On a funny side note, Will loved naming off all the food he saw that he knows the words for. For a kid in speech therapy, it was kinda cool to watch).
