Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs review

Here’s my quick impression:

Pros: some moments of really great animation, most notably the sequence with the giant rolling fishbowl. Lots of humor packed into it. Some good sight gags. Pretty funny movie.

Cons: In creating a movie plot out of a very short story, they relied on one movie cliché after another. The characters were old movie stereotypes. Apparently, the planet only has one female on it & she’s the love interest. They also felt compelled to create a bad guy and have battle sequences.

Semi-pro: At least they didn’t outright kill the bad guy as they do at the end of most American films, including most children’s movies.

Blogs let you pretend to be a movie reviewer.

    I haven’t seen the movie, but the title alone gives me the impression it’s derivative of R. Crumb.

    That’s pretty funny. The R. Crumb comic must have been made before the book in ’78 (beatniks weren’t big in the late 70’s). Somebody should ask the author if she was a Robert Crumb fan.
