GENRE: Sci-fi foodie adventure
THE PITCH: Young crackpot inventor Flint Lockwood (voiced by Bill Hader) accidentally revitalizes his struggling hometown with a gizmo that causes food weather to fall from the sky. When greed and pride cause ginormous menu items to wreak havoc, its like a Roland Emmerich disaster film combined with an all-you-can eat buffet.
MONEY SHOTS: The big moments of weather food all look great, including the initial, manna-like rain of cheeseburgers and a snowfall of ice cream. Disaster weather includes a terrifying yet delicious-looking spaghetti tornado and a tidal wave following a burst dam of massive leftovers. At the finale, Flints food machine defends itself with flying pizza slices and huge, ravenous roast chickens.
BEST BAD PUN: You may have seen a meteor shower, but youve never seen a shower meatier than this! declares Flints love interest, weather channel intern Sam Sparks (Anna Faris).
