If you’re looking for a good family film that everyone is likely to enjoy—and not be scared by, fall asleep during, or simply whine through—look no further than Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
. Featuring the voices of up and coming funny people Bill Hader and Anna Faris, it’s a funny and charming film about the underdog who grows up to be the hero. And who doesn’t love a story like that?
(Spoilers ahead…) Based on the beloved children’s book written by Judi Barrett, the film is about a misfit child scientist who just doesn’t fit in, and grows up to create an amazing invention that turns water into food. When the machine is sucked up into the sky by accident, he is able to make it rain food—which is fantastic for his small town at first but later, of course, causes problems.
