Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs-- the movie!

Donald found this and showed it to me, knowing how much I like the classic picture book, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Apparently, there's going to be a movie based on the book:

I'm not sure yet what to think. Clearly, they've added to the original storyline-- they'd have to, really, to make a movie out of it-- but several of the scenes in the preview are based directly on illustrations in the book, which is a good sign. I'll definitely have to give it a watch, sooner or later. Though I doubt it will completely capture the pure whimsy of the original, it's still probably worth seeing once for anyone who enjoys the book.
