Get Ready for a Giant Food Fight in ChewandSwallow!
|"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" (2009).|
With that kind of built-in audience, it was only a matter of time before an animated feature film arrived. This is a good one, though the adaptation does differ from the book in many significant respects. Loaded with congenial voice actors like Bruce Campbell, Al Roker, and Neil Patrick Harris, and directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the film was a hit that has resulted in a sequel, "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2."
|If this looks oddly familiar - you probably first saw it when you were about 10 years old.|
|Flint working on his newest invention.|
Unhappy about his newest failure, Flint meets Samantha "Sam" Sparks, a weather intern who is out of work because of the destruction caused by the FLDSMDFR. While they are talking, Flint and Sam find they have some things in common, and then the unexpected happens - rainbow-colored clouds overhead begin raining cheeseburgers.
|Flint and the FLDSMDFR.|
|Sam is quite fetching.|
|Nobody knows what to expect from the approaching storm.|
Flint managed to penetrate the meatball protecting the FLDSMDFR and plugs his cellphone into it to turn it off. The code that Tim sent, however, does not work. Thinking fast, Tim uses another of his inventions, for Spray-on Shoes, and that destroys the FLDSMDFR. The town is saved, Tim finally respects Flint, and Flint and Sam kiss and the Mayor gets his just desserts.
|The Mayor is delighted.|
|Mr. T wants Flint to be more like his son.|
|Everything is going fine - for now.|
|Trouble is approaching.|
|Sam working hard during the storm.|
|Flint is a genius with an arsenal of useful inventions.|
