Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs is a great family movie I just happened to see on a flight back in January, twice. I love the animation and the humour, and it was just one of the most enjoyable relaxing movies I had sen in a while!
Right now, HMV.ca is advertising Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs on Blu Ray: a 2 Disk DVD set for $14.99. That price is even cheaper than the regular 2 Disk DVD (non-blu ray) set which is going for $29.99 currently at HMV. Amazon.ca is out stock of the blu-ray 2 disk set, and Best Buy is charging $32.99 for the exact same Blu Ray set!
Though you can’t buy DVDs at HMV.ca you can sign up for an account and put a DVD on reserve at your local store, for pick-up within 7 days. They will then call you to confirm the DVD is indeed available (hasn’t been sold between your request and them checking their email/database) and you bring in your email as confirmation when you pick it up. I just picked up mine yesterday and had no problems!
Rotten Tomatoes, a movie review site I like to use, gave Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs a 86% ‘Certified Fresh’ Rating (which you just don’t see everyday!). They said the following about Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs:
“Quirky humour, plucky characters and solid slapstick make this family comedy a frenetically tasty time at the movies.“
