I don't know how Common Sense gave this review 3 stars! This movie is hilarious! If you need a movie for the whole family to laugh at this is the one! Flint never gives up and follows his dreams, and when they backfire he saves the day. Certainly a great role model! The animation and characters are superb and the whole movie is as funny as you can get!
Parents, don't waste your time renting or buying this movie for your kids. Watch it on TV, because this isn't worth your money. It comes a lot on Cartoon Network(for free). I don't find it such a great movie. It's a good timepass, though. The MPAA rating is PG.
Flint from when he was young wanted to be a inventor and when hes older he does just that, but things start going teribly wrong. it was very funny when brent turned into a chicken n flint n sam fought them off..lol
I don't understand why people say this movie is so great. I read reviews for this movie all over, and i actually thought it would be great, but it was so repetitive and boring. The whole plot is basically how a inventor who was not liked made an invention to "save" his island. The invention was something that made it rain food. I don't know why people think it's so great.
Bottom line: Raining food? Really? What where you people thinking?
This was a very funny movie! This movie might scare kids like the chickens. The mayor isn't a good role model because he overeats, and he talks Flint into keep going just to be popular. Also, the bullies in Flint's school. But Flint is a good role model because he never gives up, and Sam understands him. Great movie
Common Sense Media is really wrong on their review. This is a great movie and is very kid-friendly, but I would definitely pause kids aged 6 because the movie has quite some violence in it towards the end of the movie. There is also an emotional background to the movie. I wouldn't let kids 0-4 watch this, it is iffy for 6 year olds, and is on for 8 and up. Very good movie, it's funny, slightly emotional, and has a lot of great cartoon violence.
LOVED IT SOOOO MUCH!!!!!! IT WAS SO CUTE!!!!! ESPECIALLY THE MONKEY WAS CUTE!!!!!! VERY CUTE!!!!!!!!! This was such a great movie!! Why does it have 2 stars? It was not weird at all! It had great animation!!! This is one of my favorites! Makes me hungry. I usually like to buy as much food as I can to eat during the movie so I don't get to hungry. Food falling from the sky. I would wish that really happened. IT WAS SUCH A GREAT MOVIE!!!! I LOVE CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS!!!!! Or should I call it CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF AWESOMENESS!!!! It's on for all ages!!!!! Great for kids, tweens and up! Tweens will love it!! teenagers will love it even more and adults will go crazy over it!!!!! AWESOME KIDS MOVIE!!!! IT'S THE BEST!!!!!!!!!
That was gross. I am vegan, and all there was is meat, and burgers. The only vegan stuff was broccoli, and fruit. And besides, the machine in the sky pumping out the huge brown bag that stretched out until it broke at the bottom, releasing an avalanche of food. It just looked like what you would see if you stuck a camera in the toilet. Face up. I can't believe I ate all those oily french fries beforehand.

WHY common sense?
This is a great movie. I seriously had no idea why you gave it 2 stars. Because the main character is emotional enough or because it wasn't much like the book? Well, how could they made a whole movie with the concept of it raining food with no backstory? Anyways, I found the movie enteraining with adorable animation and a funny story.
