We almost get tired of hearing ourselves say it, but there is no animation company quite like Pixar. But if there’s a number two in the game, it may be Sony Pictures animation, who offered up the swell Monster House and the decent Surf’s Up. Their latest looks like their best to date, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, based on the children’s book by Judi and Ron Barrett.

The movie, which will be screened in 3D, follows an inventor who stumbles upon an invention that turns water into food, hence the title. Dude can make it rain spaghetti, hamburgers, pancakes and Jell-O. It’s a promising premise, and the animation is sparkly. And hell: They managed to get Mr. T, Tracey Morgan, and Bruce Campbell to do voice work (in addition to Bill Hader and Anna Faris).
