    The voice cast for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs has been released by Sony Pictures Animation.

    An all-star voice cast headed by Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, Andy Samberg, Bruce Campbell, Mr. T, and Tracy Morgan, will bring to life the characters of Sony Pictures Animation's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, set for release January 15, 2010, in mouthwatering 3D. The film is written and directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, based on the bestselling children's book written by Judi Barrett and illustrated by Ron Barrett. Pam Marsden is the producer.

    In 2010, Columbia Pictures' and Sony Pictures Animation's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs will be the most delicious event since macaroni met cheese. Inspired by the beloved children's book, the film focuses on a town where food falls from the sky like rain.

    Bill Hader, star of "Saturday Night Live" and Superbad, will voice Flint Lockwood, a young inventor who dreams of creating something that will improve everyone's life. Anna Faris, who recently turned heads as the star of the comedy hit The House Bunny, takes on the role of Sam Sparks, a weathergirl covering the phenomenon who hides her intelligence behind a perky exterior. James Caan plays Tim Lockwood, Flint's technophobic father. Andy Samberg plays Brent, the town bully who has plagued Flint since childhood. Bruce Campbell plays Mayor Shelbourne, who figures out that Flint's invention can put the town, and more importantly himself, on the map. Mr. T plays the by-the-rules town cop Earl Devereaux, and Tracy Morgan takes on the role of Earl's rule-breaking son, Cal.

    My kids and I love that book, too. It's best read with a slight Sam Elliot inflection, IMO.

    Fun, fun movie.... The grandaughter loved it and the bride and I liked it even more. Lotsa little pieces that made me laugh out loud.

    4 out of 5 stars.

    I recently watched. The kids loved it. I thought it was pretty good for a cartoon movie. I read that a sequel is in the works for 2014.
