Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
I went with my girls to see "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs." They have been dying to see it since they first saw the trailer.
First off, this film has nothing to do with the book. So put those expectations away. That said, I enjoyed this movie a good deal, laughing out loud many times. For the kids, it is upbeat, funny, and has a positive message. For the adults, there are lots of gags and references to other movies. I would compare it to Kung Fu Panda in that way. This is no Up or Wall-E, but I can't imagine you won't have a good time if you see it.
I saw it in 3-D, which was added a layer of fun and excitement to the whole thing. There are parts that may be scary for little ones, but my children, and all those around me, seemed to love it. The 10 year old boys who were with us said they didn't like it, and would have preferred more violence. To each his own.
Though I liked the film, I have nothing positive to say about the way the Green Hills Cinema handled us today. But, that will make for its own letter to the manager.
