Movie Review - Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 3D

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs isn't much like other kid movies that Southern Man gets dragged to by ten-year-old daughter. It's quite funny and often wonderfully wierd. There are plenty of homages to classic movies, including quite a bit of old sci-fi, and pokes fun at a number of well-remembered disaster flicks. The dialog is witty and often razor sharp. The gadgets are low-tech retro-seventies, complete with blocky graphics and cheezy eight-bit sound. The animation reminds Southern Man of the old Rankin-Bass 'toons. And the movie is hardly anything like the book at all, other than the food falling from the sky. See this one in 3D if possible.
