Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is going to be a movie this fall.
Here's a description: "[I]t's about a wacky inventor who helps his financially depressed town get back on its feet by creating a device that spews food from the sky. Suddenly pancakes are flying and people are dodging produce."(Found at Movies without Pity, you'll have to move forward a few pictures.)
Well, that's not like the book I remember. Not at all.
