Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was one of my very favorite books as a kid. I say as a kid, to be honest, it's still one of my favorite books.  So I was excited to hear that they are turning it into a movie.

I just finished watching the trailer.  It looks like they have expanded the story to include a lot of cartoon cheesiness.  But I'm happy to see that some of Ron Barrett's iconic illustrations are still incorporated into the animation.  I will reserve judgment until I see it.
