I originally never wanted to rent "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" as I, being a teenager, thought it was a complete waste of good game time. My cousins convinced me and I thought well I'll just sleep through it and give it back the next day, not really caring. WRONG! This movie went above and beyond what I expected and completely blew me away. Here we go.
~-~ The Good ~-~ - Killer graphics! I know movies are supposed to be top-notch, but to see it on a PSP and say wow that's amazing is a mighty feat. - You connect emotionally with your characters in a way I didn't think possible. I almost cried, heck I did cry, in some scenes and when you see the father you will know exactly why. - The correlation to the book, even though I never read it, now puts the book as it should be in my mind: in Oprah's Book Club. I'm not kidding, the movie was that good that I don't have a doubt in my mind that if I read the book when I was 5, it would be the best book ever created. - Sound is excellent, as it should be. - AN ACTUAL PLOT! I know, I was surprised, I was expecting a full set of poo jokes. I was delightfully mistaken and got me actually interested.
~-~ The Bad ~-~ - The only reason I give it a nine was because it was PG and of course not my intended age group, and yet there were those cheezy points. Kids will love them! I don't give 10's because nothing is perfect, but this is very close.
All in all, a perfect rent because it is a movie, one shot and send it back so to speak, and definitely a top children's book turned movie.
