Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Review

I took the kids to see this movie today. We were supposed to go to the Sensory Friendly version at 10am at our participating AMC cinema. Well that never happened. Little K had decided last night to get a Popsicle out of the freezer in the garage and left the freezer door open. I was feeling miserable, so I never went behind him to check and make sure he closed it. So on the way out the door I noticed all of my months and months of stockpiled meat was starting to thaw!!!

Needless to say after some hysterical tears and throwing away tons of meat, we made it to the regular viewing of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.

It was a pretty good movie. I think my kids & I have gotten spoiled by going to the Sensory Friendly version because it isn't as loud, the lights are up and we don't have to watch previews. Plus it is a lot cheaper!!! Back to the movie, I found myself laughing to a lot of the humor in the movie but my kids didn't quite get some of it. I think it was a little over their heads. My favorite part was when he made it snow ice cream!!

Plus they showed the preview of Where the Wild Things Are!! I want to see this but am not sure if I can convience the kids to go. Probably one of my most favorite books, hands down, but my kids hate this book. Low and behold this is the next Sensory Friendly film in October!!

Oh no! My son left our freezer door open a couple of months ago...I thik I sheded a few tears myself as I threw all my things away. It made my next trip to walmart pretty interesting, even the cashier made a comment about all my frozen groceries. =)
