5.0 out of 5 starsAmazing. There are no words. Except the ones I provided below.
Verified purchase
I feel it's common courtesy as a reviewer to establish credibility before getting started.

I have seen A Bug's Life upwards of 20 times, wrote my college essay about Finding Nemo and was promptly waitlisted at every Ivy Leauge institution (not denied!), and have extensively researched all YahooAnswer responses to "what's the relationship between Disney & Pixar."

I can say without a doubt that Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is the best animated movie of all time. It will meet and exceed all your expectations of plot complexity and subtle humor. Understanding this quiet interjection of ingenious comedy will absolutely reaffirm your opinion of yourself as a wildly perceptive audience member.

Like walking out of a restaurant so satisfied, I envy your position as a fresh customer about to devour the beauty that is this film.

1.0 out of 5 starsWould not recommend
Verified purchase
There are several scenes where a grown man is in his underwear, practically nude. There is also a really awkward scene where two people are about to kiss. It is so overdrawn and climaxed. It is uncomfortable and not appropriate for a children's movie. I would not recommend if you are religious and have standards for your children and what they watch.

5.0 out of 5 starsContains both the 3D and the Standard BluRay Movies.
Verified purchase
I wish the description had said that the one disk has both versions of the movie. I bought the 3D to use with my VR headset and also bought the standard Bluray because I didn't know this also had the regular movie on there. Sigh, just a couple of words saying the one disk has both versions would have saved me from buying the flat version.

Oh well I have two copies of the same movie now.

2.0 out of 5 starsNo digital code and read my damn reviews!!!
Verified purchase
Once again a new movie without a digital code. I really depend on these codes being a traveler on business. And it really pisses me off when I open the case and there’s no code. Especially when it’s not specified!!! Can I exchange it for one with a digital code insert? Or even get it free? Cut me some kind of a break? Please!?! And you guys suck at reading my reviews dammit!!!!

5.0 out of 5 starsIt grows on you
Verified purchase
I like animated films, but I wasn't compelled to see this one in the theatre. I thought it would be like most animated films with some boring, trite story line with a half hazard attempt at some moral message that would fly over the heads of its target audience. I watched this movie for the first time when it aired on Showtime. The movie provoked a few chuckles. I watched it again and again during it's stint on Showtime and I realized this movie got more hilarious the more I watched it. I grew to love the strange brand of comedy and odd characters. There were little jokes here and their that kept me watching. Also who can pass up a movie that gives you a scene where there is a runway made of bacon?! Even the credits made me laugh when they show what I assume to be London get the 'rainbow and sunshine' treatment. The giant food is cleaned up, but the city is pretty much gray and dreary like it was before. Not sure why they were picking on London, but it made me laugh. Lastly, great soundtrack!! It had a very 'high adventure' feel to it.

3.0 out of 5 starsOK Movie
Verified purchase
This is an OK movie and my kids like it. It has its funny moments but they are honestly a little too few and far between. And here are the things that I thought weren't so great about it:

- It's incredibly heavy-handed in its message, which is "be true to yourself" with a little bit of "don't over-indulge" mixed in. Not a horrible message, but it is ridiculous how obvious it is in trying to influence kids that watch it.
- The characters are all over-used stereotypes you have seen a thousand times in other movies.
- There are many sections that are so cheesy I was thinking "really, guys?" as I watched them. I don't want to be too specific due to possible spoilers, but there are some pretty cringe-worthy scenes.

At any rate, this movie is worth watching. It entertained my boys and I. But if you watch it you should keep in mind that it isn't even in the same league as, say, Up.

2.0 out of 5 starsThey LOVE the original book
Verified purchase
My kids were not very impressed with this movie. They LOVE the original book, and we were excited to rent the movie for them when it came out. However, the movie seems only very loosely based on the book which was a big disappointment to us. It also is geared towards an older age group than the book is.

4.0 out of 5 starsI love the silliness and fun of the series
Verified purchase
I have a 4yo who loves Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, so I figured we would have a look at the first one. He likes the original, but wants to fast-forward through all of the less exciting parts. There seems to be a lot less action and a lot more talking in this one compared to the second movie. The second movie he will never fast-forward. It keeps him interested for the duration of the movie which is saying a ton!

For me, the first and second movies are equally enjoyable. I love the silliness and fun of the series.
