Flint Lockwood thinks he's a genius. But none of the things he invented are things that make sense or are useful. However, he has the support of his mother but when she dies, he's left alone with his father who thinks he should give it up. When the community that he lives in is in an economic crisis because their primary source of income, a sardine cannery, was shut down, Flint decides to try his latest invention, a machine that can turn water into food. But something goes wrong and the machine ends up in the atmosphere. Later it starts raining food. The shifty mayor tries to use this as a way to help their community, but when Flint senses something wrong with the machine, the mayor convinces him to ignore it. However, as Flint predicts, chaos ensues.
|nudity||A man and a woman lean toward each other and kiss (they both blow out their cheeks as they touch their lips together). A man leans toward a woman and puckers his lips, she asks what he's doing and they get on with their conversation. A man and a woman go on a date; they walk together and talk and nearly kiss. A man calls a woman "that little cutlet." A man makes fun of a woman's appearance. A man pulls off a sweat suit in several scenes to reveal his bare chest, abdomen and back and we see that he is wearing only a diaper. We see a Jell-O stature of David (nudity is not obvious).|
|violence||Large, headless, roasted chickens walk toward three people, they surround one man and one chicken eats him (we see the man being "swallowed" into the chicken; he's OK later). Large Gummy Bears tear up an airplane while it is flying, the plane spins out of control, and a monkey attacks the bears kicking a few off the wing and punching one in the chest (we see the monkey pull out a piece of the bear and that bear falls to its knees). A man whose has been swallowed by a chicken pushes head out the neck opening and punches and kicks other chickens around him. A large spaghetti tornado blows though a town picking up cars and people as it goes (no one is harmed); people run and scream as huge meatballs and slices of garlic bread are thrown from the swirling pasta and globs of noodles splatter on the ground, sometimes on top of people.|
|profanity||1 exclamation that sounds like a scatological term (it is hard to make out) and 1 mild obscenity. Name-calling (nerd, lame, freak, weirdo and 4-eyes.)|
|alcohol||We see wine in glasses on tables at a restaurant.|
|frightening||It may be scary to younger audiences when a man is eaten alive by a living roasted chicken, however he reappears a minute later, popping his head out of the chicken. Several roasted chickens come alive, all attacking main characters, could be intense for young viewers. Sam gets peanut brittle on her arm, shoves it off, and then her arm and her face swell up. (She is severely allergic to peanuts). The last 35 minutes are especially intense, and the scenes inside the giant meatball may scare some of the younger ones. When Mount Leftovers collapses is quite intense too, as a child falls over, and is nearly killed by an avalanche of food.|
