Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs | Ratings & Reviews

"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…"

Total FilmTotal Film

"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."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"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."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is probably the best family animation film I've seen in a while."

Otago Daily TimesOtago Daily Times

"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."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"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."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

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

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

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