Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs
As I expected, it doesn’t have the heart of Pixar movies, but hot damn it sure as hell is funny. I found myself constantly laughing out loud. I’d like to think that I have a sophisticated sense of humor (well, sometimes) and this movie definitely tickled my sometimes sophisticated funny bones. It’s a fresh gift from the animation gods who have the habit of throwing cutesy talking animals our way every now and then.
I liked it but it’s not as funny as I hoped. It needs more Ken Jeong and less sappy Vince Vaughn speeches. The ensemble cast didn’t quite mesh in an elegant soup of hilarity and cheese, which is what I expected. Nevertheless, I give this a thumbs up. And by “this” I mean Kristen Bell and Malin Akerman in bikinis.
If you’re a fan of slasher movies and hot sorority chicks, you will love Sorority Row. I know I did. Sure, it’s just I Know What You Did Last Summer with sorority girls and frat boys, but who cares? It follows the rules of slasher flicks faithfully. In fact, it doesn’t really offer anything new, but again, who cares? I love slasher movies because they’re stupid and bloody and sexy. This movie, my friends, delivers on all three.
