Trivia / Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

  • Actor Allusion: Officer Earl Devereaux is voiced by Mr. T, and his character sure acts a lot like him. One of his lines also includes a variation on "I pity the fool." He has a bald spot which is the exact opposite of Mr. T's bald head with Mohawk, and T-shaped facial hair. Not to mention that during the food flood as he's carrying his wife and son on a raft, he jumps through a fallen tortilla chip and comes out the other side, a "T"-shaped hole visible right behind him.
  • Actor-Shared Background mixed in with "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Averted. Flint hurriedly admits to Sam that he loves peanut butter, then lies about being allergic to it when Sam says she has a peanut allergy. Bill Hader (Flint's voice actor, and yes, the same one who plays Stefon on SNL) actually does have a peanut allergy in real life.
  • Cast the Expert: Sort of. The WNN anchor is played by real-life weatherman Al Roker.
  • The Other Darrin: Terry Crews replaces Mr. T in the sequel.
  • Playing Against Type: Anna Faris as a Hollywood Nerd in contrast to some of her ditzy roles.
  • Recursive Adaptation: A movie novelization of the film was released.
  • What Could Have Been: There was a cut scene from the movie where Flint and the Mayor were sword fighting using celery sticks. It was taken out for unknown reasons.
