(mbc.net) When Swallow Falls' only major employer, a sardine factory, closes its doors the town is left destitute. Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader) is a notorious resident, known for his half-baked inventions that seldom work as intended.
His latest creation is a surprising success -- at least initially. The contraption transforms rainclouds into food clouds that rain cheeseburgers. Flint's neighbors' are elated, but cheeseburgers are not enough to satisfy Mayor Shelbourne (Bruce Campbell), who asks the inventor to create a spaghetti and meatball shower. Soon Swallow Falls is flooded with the Italian entrée, and Flint must devise a plan to stop it.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was nominated for a Golden Globe. The picture earned $243 million at the box office, two and a half times its $100 million budget.
