Splendid movie! I saw this in 3D and they did a fantastic job with it. Honestly, I hate most kids movies or movies that even look like they're kids movies, but this one really appealed to me. It had a goofy-yet-mature sense of humor that appeals to adults as well. Add to the fact that the visuals is pure eye candy, there's nothing wrong I can say about t his movie. An animated film done right!
This is not 1 star in my review, because I always feel ashamed of seeing til the last bit a movie that I hate (which is very rare. I was waiting for some insight, some twist that made it a new (or even an old) way of looking at waste and junk food. Nope, nothing.
Lord and Miller tend to take their wink-wink-nudge-nudge-look-how-ironic-and-self-deprecating-we-are humor too far sometimes, but this film is so genuine, energetically silly and sweet (with an important message for the little ones) that it's hard to fault them for much. The whole "I like you, not just as a friend" exchange is priceless. Also: "Ignorance is not a virtue."
Surprisingly likable concept and idea about crazy scientist genius youngster who manage to let the sky fall down with food. Surprising good voice actors too with distinctive voices. Sadly, ending is a boring "we have to save the world" one.
Flint Lockwood, you're a shenaniganizer - a tom fool! Yes a quote review, piss off. Wicked colours, quick-fire dialogue and I don't care if I miss a pun or joke the first time round as it is easy to watch again and again.
A film with plenty of quirky humor and a heartwarming ending (Lord and Miller perfect this later in The Lego Movie) in addition to the various messages it contains. While it is weaker near the end, the references to other disaster movies help.
