Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs trailerApr 08 2009

How to Take a Beloved Children's Classic Book and Screw It All Up, Exhibit A: based on the trailer, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Except for the food falling from the sky, they changed everything else. But it's IN 3-D!!! *pffft*

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, the movieAug 25 2008

They're making an animated movie of my favorite book from childhood, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

"It's actually only loosely -- very, very loosely -- based on the book," Faris explained. "But it's about a small town that rains food, basically. So hamburgers come down, and ice cream, and [the residents] have to figure out a way [stop it]. Eventually, it gets more and more dangerous, and they have to figure out a way to stop the satellite machine that's raining food."

It stars Andy Samberg and Anna Faris. I'm prepared to be *very* disappointed. (thx, kimberly)
