Sony gives Pixar a run for its money with this animated kid flick based on the beloved book of the same name, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, in which a scientist’s best intentions go wrong with his invention of a machine that creates food out of water. When giant hamburgers, pancakes and other comestibles suddenly start falling from the sky instead of rain, the scientist teams up with a brainy news weathergirl to find out what’s going on—and stop it before giant meatballs and spaghetti tornadoes destroy the world.
New on DVD: ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,’ ‘The Final Destination’
