Anna Faris and Bill HaderIt's raining meatballs -- hallelujah!

Based on the popular children's book by Judi and Ron Barrett, the movie 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' (opening Sept. 18) tells the tale of scientist Flint Lockwood (voiced by Bill Hader), who spends his whole life working on inventions that don't work. During a worldwide food shortage, he finally hits upon a way of converting rain into food ... which works out great until the machine goes out of control. Anna Faris voices Samantha "Sam" Sparks, a reporter who comes to town to investigate the phenomenon.

'Cloudy' is an animated children's movie, but its two stars, Faris and Hader, are big-time talents from the world of adult comedy. You know Hader from his work on 'Saturday Night Live,' as well as his constant scene-stealing in movies like 'Superbad,' 'Tropic Thunder' and 'Adventureland.'

As for Faris, she's possibly one of our most gifted comediennes working today -- after all, who else could pull off playing a ditzy former Playboy bunny (in 'The House Bunny') and manage to be the smartest thing in the entire movie?
