Cloudy is smart, insightful on a host of relationship dynamics, and filled with fast-paced action.
78
The sights are ingenious, impressively rendered in 3-D, and the sounds – including cheeky voice work by Mr. T, Neil Patrick Harris, and Benjamin Bratt – are a blast.
75
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
The film combines a pinch of morality with a healthy dose of humor to produce a movie that's entertaining for everyone.

Miami Herald
A joyful romp, devoid of the tiresome pop-culture references.
75
It’s a brisk, bright, winning effort, even though it already looks sadly out of touch with the times.
70
The splashy animation is well-executed but again a bit monotonous for a full-length feature.

Variety
Eye-popping and mouth-watering in one, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs spins a 30-page children's book into a 90-minute all-you-can-laugh buffet.
67
Goes down easy enough at first. But even at a svelte 81 minutes, this meal drags on too long.
63
There is clear definition between closer and further elements. I've seen a lot of 3-D recently, and in terms of technical quality, this is the best.
60
The year’s 3-D deluge continues: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is an amusingly loopy kids’ meal about a small-town inventor.
