Makes You Hungry, Makes You Laugh.

There are a lot of books that go straight to movies these days. But Judi Barrett’s “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” has been a long time coming.

For those of you who didn’t have the book read to them as a child, it’s about a young scientist named Flint Lockwood (voiced by SNL’s Bill Hader) who creates a machine that turns water into food. When he epically fails and launches his invention into the clouds, it begins to rain food. Much to the delight of the town he’s terrorized for years. But is it going a little too far?

I got the opportunity to see it in “REAL 3-D” last night, and dare I say, it’s well with the extra 2 bucks. The 3D is very abundant, but not too gratuitous. The technology has come a long way. And oh yeah, the Jello castle looks great this way.

Baby Brent (SNLs Andy Sanberg) really steals the scenes he’s in (UH OHHHHHH) and only adds to the excellent screenwriting. Be sure to have something to eat before you go see this, you’ll get so fucking hungry it’s not even funny. In the realm of Pixar-dominated animated films, this film really stands up, bitchslaps you and says “Notice my sexy ass. I’m wearing a thong”. Do yourself a big favor and check it out.

A+
