This is something of a dream come true stories. As the saying goes: ‘The way to reach a man’s heart is through his stomach”, this one definitely reached my heart.
The movie has a relatively simple concept and that makes it a beautiful one for kids to enjoy it too. The story has a weird inventor named Flint Lockwood living in Sardine Town and he is apparently bored with all the sardines that he gets. He thus sets into a task of creating a satellite which will change the weather … with one small variant: the weather is now food – flavored.
As he prepares to launch the satellite, something goes wrong and there is a lot of property mashed up as the satellite goes through the city and then finally launches into orbit. Everyone is now angry with Flint, but all the anger gets dissipated as a shower of burgers starts up. The whole city gets up in spirits and loves the taste of something new other than sardines.
The mayor now has high hopes of making his town the tourist spot where parents could bring their kids to have any kind of junk food at any time. He gets Flint to make three meals a day with the help of the satellite which is now considered the best thing since ‘canned sardines’.
But as with every story, there is a catch and this time it’s an overload of junk food. Flint, with the help of a was-a-weather-nerd-now-a-weather-reporter girl called Sam, has to insert the kill code into the satellite to prevent the entire town from turning into junk.
The story has really good effects if you watch it in 3D. I think if it is once watched in 3D, then the 2D version may seem a bit bland. But irrespective of whichever version you watch, gear up for a fun experience with a funny story and loads of food.
