Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Reviews
09.17.09 by REELZ
This animated adaptation of a popular kids book is voiced by Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, and ... Mr. T! We pity the fool critic who doesn't like this movie.
"...an exuberant comedy with sleek animation and a kicky script."
— Natasha Vargas-Cooper, E! Online
"With its giant hamburgers and ice cream snowflakes falling from the sky, Ron and Jodi Barrett's classic children's book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs imaginatively expanded its prepubescent audience's sense of wonder and possibility. Now a 3-D animated film, adapted to the screen by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Cloudy looks to work similar magic on a new generation."
— Adam Keleman, Slant Magazine
"...goes down easy enough at first. But even at a svelte 81 minutes, this meal drags on too long..."
— Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"I've seen a lot of 3-D recently, and in terms of technical quality, this is the best."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
