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.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Neil Patrick Harris as the monkey, Mr T as the cop, BRUCE CAMPBELL as the Mayor.
    • Not to mention Baby Brent, Joe Towne and Flint himself — all recognizable as Saturday Night Live castmembers at the time. As of 2012, Flint's voice actor — Bill Hader — is the only one who's still a cast member on SNL (though, as of season 38 [2012-2013], Hader now joins Forte and Samberg as an ex-cast member). Will Forte, the voice of Joe Towne, left the show after its 35th season while Andy Samberg, the voice of Baby Brent, left the show after the 37th season.
    • And Al Roker as the WNN anchor!
    • Neil Flynn also has a brief role as a WNN producer.
    • Lorelai as Flint's Missing Mom.
    • And for those who for some reason didn't notice, Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris) as Sam.
  • The Other Darrin: Terry Crews replaces Mr. T in the sequel.
  • Recursive Adaptation: A movie novelization of the film was released.
