Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (Phil Lord/Christopher Miller, 2009) B+
I was shocked at how funny this movie was. It really is very clever, and even has one particularly funny and subtle joke that pokes fun at Roland Emmerich. On top of that, the art style is great and the voice work is fantastic, with voices provided by Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Bruce Campbell, Andy Samberg, and Neil Patrick Harris.

The Naked Gun
(David Zucker, 1988) A-
I love these 1980's spoof movies. The Naked Gun flings gags at you a mile a minute. The bumbling protagonist, Frank Drebin, is played by the late, great Leslie Nielsen, whose deadpan performance really enhances the film's comedy, although it does get old after a few viewings.
