Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was based on the kids book of the same name, but a lot changed from the page from the screen. The movie builds on the book by Judi Barrett and tells the origin story of how the town of Chewandswallow got its name and mysterious weather. Henry and his sister (the two characters from the book) are replaced by Flint Lockwood (voiced by Bill Hader), an ambitious inventor, and Sam Sparks, a young meteorologist (voiced by Anna Faris). The DVD is packed with extras, like the “splat” feature that lets you throw food at the screen while the movie’s playing. If you’re a fan of disaster movies, or just like meatballs with your spaghetti, check out the DVD review of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs on Kidzworld.
