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.
