Character Voices:  Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, Andy Samberg (yes-the “Jizz in My Pants” and “I’m on a Boat” video dude / comedian)


This inspired movie from a children’s book, is one fun-foodie loving animation!  I think it’s every kid’s, and maybe even some adults dream to have their favorite food fall from the sky at an given second of the day.  Let the stress go, and watch this animated flick.


Inventor, Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader, Voice, “Year One,” “Night at the Museum: “Battle of the Smithsonian”), thinks he’s a genius, however nothing seems to work out quite the way he wants, until one day in his sardine selling town has tons of food choices, and all because of a mishap on Lockwood’s part—he somehow came up with a machine that turns water into food.


Now, this might seem awesome to everyone at first, then the invention gets unruly and the food gets larger than expected, making turmoil for everyone, especially the reporter, turned weather lady, Sam Sparks (Anna Faris, Voice, “Scary Movie” Series, “House Bunny,” “The Hot Chick.”)


This is a great animated movie, and for everyone!  It’s simply irresistible like a nice juicy cheeseburger, and some of your favorite ice cream for dessert! Check this one out today, on DVD via Netflix or Pay Per View.
