Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - Double Feature! {Food'N'Flix}

from www.totalfilm.com

Food‘nFlixIt's my turn to host Food'N'Flix...when we watch movies and head  into the kitchen and cook or bake or make something based on a recipe they actually make in it or just something we were driven to make after watching it.

As a final hoorah for summer vacation, I selected a double-feature of the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs flicks. You can watch the original or the sequel or both!


This post contains an amazon affiliate link at the bottom - for the DVDs and the original story.

Inspired by Ron and Judi Barrett's beloved children's book of the same name, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs follows Swallow Falls inventor Flint Lockwood as his Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator, or FLDSMDFR for short, begins to malfunction. Imagine a cheeseburger storm. Or, make something with sardines! The sequel Cloudy 2 picks up right where the first leaves off. The FLDSMDFR is malfunctioning again, this time producing sentient food beasts—foodimals! Foodimals? you ask. Yes. Think: Fruit Cockatiels, Shrimpanzees, Mosquitoasts, and Buttertoads.

Join the fun, then post about it on your blog with a link back to this post and to Food'N'Flix. Use of the logo is optional.

Your post must be current (during month of film). And of course we don't mind if your post is linked to other events...the more the merrier.

Have fun with it!

  3. Thanks so much for hosting this month, Camilla. This was one of my favorite books as a kid (I still have my copy from when I was little), and the movies are so much fun! Can't wait to see what everybody brings to the table. :)
