Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

Other mistake: In the scene where the mayor is talking behind the chainlink fence, with Brent in the background eating Sardines, you can see as the mayor grabs the fence the fencewire is going through his thumbs. This is on both hands and easily visible.

Continuity mistake: After the spaghetti twister, Flint puts on his lab coat in the elevator and you can see he has his tuxedo shirt on. Then during the building montage, it's a blue shirt, then changes back to the tuxedo shirt when he turns on the car. Also, during the building, the design on the blue shirt disappears.


Continuity mistake: When it's Cal's birthday, in the first shot of the ice cream truck thing, look at the children on top of it. They all are facing different directions. When you see the close up of the ice cream crushing them, they are all facing to the left.

Low Cow

Continuity mistake: When the giant fishbowl is launched into the air it's about 1/3 full of water. However, when it lands on Flint, it's completely dry. Even if most of the water got tossed out(which is unlikely), it should still be dripping pretty hard.

Fawkes the Phoenix

Continuity mistake: Before the Ice Cream Snow scene you see Cal wake up in his bedroom with his pajamas on, in the very next shot, when he sees the ice cream outside, he has his coat on.

Suggested correction: Obviously he grabbed it before running out.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Flint has been persuaded by the Mayor to keep the machine running and is about to enter the food code, it changes to a shot showing his computer screen. in this shot, his computer is using Windows. But in the shot of the same screen where Flint's Father is about to send him the kill code, the computer is using a Mac OS. (00:45:35 - 01:08:05)

Continuity mistake: When Flint first discovers that it's raining food, in the shot where you hear Steve saying "Excited", Flint's jacket isn't moving at all in the wind. It does in the close-up.

Low Cow

Continuity mistake: When Flint, Steve, and Sam are on the dock watching the burgers fall, Flint reaches out and catches a burger. To his left (your right), one can see a busted cheeseburger. Later, when Flint yells,"it really works!" part of it has disappeared.


Continuity mistake: When Flint sneaks out of the shop, he runs past the ceremony and hides behind a pillar. Nothing can be seen of him, but when the camera pans to Flint, some of his hair can be seen peeking over the pillar.

Low Cow

Continuity mistake: On the dock, in the shot of the clouds, you can see about 100 hamburgers aimed for the dock (the middle). Yet at the end of the scene when Flint says, "It really works!" only 20 or so hamburgers are visible on the dock. The wind was moving south as seen by Flint's coat blowing in the breeze, so the wind couldn't have blown them in the water. Also, the fact that we see one more shot of the clouds and the burgers (with about 200 more aiming for the dock) makes this impossible.

Low Cow

Revealing mistake: When Flint screws the fuse into the fuse box to get the lights back on his dad just appears out of thin air.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning no-one's shoes are untied, then it shows you they are, and after that they're tied again.

Other mistake: When Flint configures the computer to rain breakfast, he types the eggs as "over easy". However, when breakfast falls, all of the eggs are sunny side up. This is not likely an error of his invention because in every other case it produces the food exactly as he inputs it.
