Movie Scene Sunday: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

5/30/2010 Posted by Mel Got Served No comments
Since I was in high school I always said my dream was to turn my favorite childhood book, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs into a screenplay and a movie. Someone beat me to it. I then started my blog Mel Got Served, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs used "SERVED" in their tagline. I felt like it was haunting me. Taunting me, even. "We got to it first, slowpoke!" I did not see the movie eventhough I thought this was something the 3D treatment could be awesome for.

So I finally watched it (thanks Starz!) and it was delightful. I went into this with kinda low expectations like a few laughs but I'd probably be happy for it to end. Not at all. What a hilarious movie. Now I will spend the rest of my days dreaming of have an ice cream snowball fight, pancakes crashing on schools, and riding on a sailboat made of PB&J sandwiches with swiss chess sails.
