Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 3D

In this 3D animated chuckler, based on the children's book by Judy and Ron Barrett,  giant pancakes, pasta and hamburgers start to fall from the sky as an ambitious scientist (voiced by Bill Hader) tries to solve world hunger. However, things go terribly wrong when excess amounts of food overload cities and towns.

Eye-popping and mouth-watering in one, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs spins a 30-page children's book into a 90-minute all-you-can-laugh buffet.

The simple plot is as overextended as a compulsive eater’s waistline – but any movie bold enough to warn popcorn-munching filmgoers about obesity has to be applauded. Hell, they might not even finish the bucket…

If the filmmakers opt to make only light statements about junk food, obesity and solid waste, they at least leave the audience sated on a single serving of inspired lunacy.

There is clear definition between closer and further elements. I've seen a lot of 3-D recently, and in terms of technical quality, this is the best.

As for the animation, having giant pizzas rolling towards you and spaghetti tornadoes whizz past your face is a surprisingly cool experience.

There are plenty of messages about being yourself, greed, and the rest, but it is all treated lightly. And that's the most refreshing thing about this animation, its originality and determination to be fun.

The movie's humor targets both kids and grown-ups with equal success, but, even with the presence of a mustache-fixated monkey, the main attraction here is the movie's vibrant 3-D animation and its perfect storm of foodie-friendly sight gags.

The splashy animation is well-executed but again a bit monotonous for a full-length feature.

Bright, silly and a good shout to entertain the whole family.
