Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

Rated: PG

Inspired by the popular children's book, this wacky movie takes place on a tiny island called Swallow Falls, where food falls from the sky as rain. The deliciously imaginative plot is easy for kids to follow, and parents will love the cast of crazy characters voiced by many big-name actors and actresses, like Neil Patrick Harris and Lauren Graham. Mild language gives this movie its PG rating.

Buy on Amazon.
