On Saturday we took our little one to the movies and we pick the film Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs based on a children/s book written in 1978 by Judi Barret and illustrated by Ron Barrett. I haven’t read the book yet! but I found the film funny and witty but my husband said it wasn’t the best animated movie he had ever seen he prefered the Ice Age 3 and Madagascar.
The hero Flint Lockwood is a quirky young inventor who creates a machine that causes food to rain from the sky.
After his invention the town will never be the same again all residents become greedy and request more and more food, Spaghetti twisters….giant pancakes…meatball hail…hamburgers, hot dogs…etc. Then Flint, realises what he creates and with his friends , fight the food madness and save the town and the world!
My son Alex was laughing and may be felt a bit overwhelmed, but he loved the images of giant food and Steve the funny monkey.
The moral message is : We like food and we like good food but too much junk food is bad for you….don’t be eaten by it!
