‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’ Storyline
Flint Lockwood thinks he's a genius. But none of the things he invented are things that make sense or are useful. However, he has the support of his mother but when she dies, he's left alone with his father who thinks he should give it up. When hard times hit Swallow Falls, its townspeople can only afford to eat sardines.
Flint decides to try his latest invention, the machine that can turn water into food. But something goes wrong and the machine ends up in the atmosphere. Later, Flint becomes a local hero when tasty treats fall from the sky like rain. The shifty mayor tries to use this as a way to help their community, but when Flint senses something wrong with the machine, the mayor convinces him to ignore it. However, as Flint predicts, chaos ensues.
