Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

Don’t we all want to be recognised for our work? Or succeed in becoming our aspirations. Flint Lockwood is a character which most audiences would be able to relate to on some level. The humour of the film is one of quirkiness and many many good slapstick comedy, from the giant fishbowl trapping Flint in to baby Brent becoming Chicken Brent to Dill being their ‘Deus ex machina’. With great voice acting as well, the film successfully showcases Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s comedy sense. The world of Swallow Falls (keke swallow and meatballs) becoming more colourful and vibrant place was something which I felt that only animation could have achieved. By designing characters to be of significant body shapes we are able to believe in what was happening in that world, and experience it with the characters on screen. The scene of Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator (FLDSMDFR) making and becoming the food storm was beautifully animated, the scale of the danger was obvious, yet our mouths kept salivating. Personally I have always been a fan of family friendly animations and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs remains among my top recommendations.
