The inside scoop on food in Los Angeles

« Previous Post | Daily Dish Home | Next Post »

It's raining burgers and pancakes!

Holy macaroni! It's raining cheeseburgers! And so much more. The charming story of a town called Chewandswallow that gets its weather with a culinary twist is coming to the big screen. And in 3-D.

Like many parents, I have read the 1978 book, "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" by Judi and Ron Barrett, about a gazillion times. It's one of those stories that kids just can't hear enough times. A pancake big enough to flatten a building? What's not to love?

The movie features the voices of Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, Mr. T and Andy Samberg. The Sony Pictures Animation movie, directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, is due to open Sept. 18.
