Synopsis
Inspired by Ron and Judi Barrett's beloved children's book of the same name, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs follows inventor Flint Lockwood (voice of Bill Hader) and a brainy weathergirl (voice of Anna Faris) as they attempt to discover why the rain in their small town has stopped, and food is falling in its place. Meanwhile, lifelong bully Brent (voice of Andy Samberg) relishes in tormenting Flint like he did when they were kids, and Mayor Shelbourne (voice of Bruce Campbell) schemes to use Flint's latest invention -- a device designed to improve everyone's lives -- for his own personal gain. Mr. T voices by-the-books cop Earl Devereaux, and James Caan voices Flint's technophobe father, Tim. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

On one hand, it's excessive in all respects: overenthusiastic, exaggerated, extreme, and unbelievable.

On the other hand, I was giggling almost all the time (and I don't giggle easily) except when I was exclaiming "that's impossible"!

Yes, the plot and story are suitable for children's books.
Yes, it portrays nerds in a good light.
Yes, that doesn't stop it from being a very enjoyable movie.
