You are a Shenaniganizer! A tom-fool!
As I was pondering what to write for my next post and struggling with a bit of writer’s block, I thought about one of my all time favorite movies and was horrified to realize that I have never mentioned it on this blog. Therefore, this post shall be about the wonderful movie that is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
Ok, so for any of you not familiar with this story, it’s about a boy named Flint Lockwood (Voice by SNL’s Bill Hader) who grew up in the tiny town of Swallow Falls (located just underneath the A in Atlantic) that was known mostly for their sardines (They packaged all the sardines before everyone realized they were super gross, leaving the town with only sardines to eat). Flint is a young inventor who dreams of doing amazing things. Unfortunately, most of his inventions go wrong in some way or another (Though his monkey thought translator works quite nicely on his monkey Steve, who is in fact voiced by the incredible Neal Patrick Harris) until one day he creates the Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator (FLDSMDFR) which turns water into food. A lot of stuff happens there obviously after he creates this invention, including Brent (Andy Samberg), the “most awesome person in the whole town” being quite jealous of Flint’s new found fame, the weather girl Sam (Anna Faris) possibly being attracted to him and Earl Devereaux (Voiced by Mr. T) , the town police officer accusing him of being a shenaniganizer and a tom fool. (A line that led to Shenaniganizer being my favorite word in the English language. Fun fact about me there.) Many shenanigans and adventures are had in the movie and honestly, even though it’s an animated film it’s one of the funniest movies I have ever seen (Second only to Hot Rod, also starring Andy Samberg and Bill Hader) and I could probably watch it everyday for the rest of my life and never get tired of it.
(By the way, at 34 seconds into this video, the line “Strawberry’s my favorite!” Is my favorite line in the movie and for some reason makes me laugh uncontrollably each time. Another fun fact about myself.)
In conclusion, if you have not watched this movie, you should do so immediately. And tell me what you thought! And if you have seen it, share your favorite scenes or quotes!
