Everything I Needed to Learn I Found Out in Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

cloudy_with_a_chance_of_meatballsThis weekend I took the fam to see the new movie, “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.” Now, when I first saw the previews for this one, I wasn’t really excited about it because I figured it was just another kids movie cranked out to make a few bucks. I also wasn’t too pumped about the idea of that much food raining from the sky. It sounded kind of gross. Not to mention my concern about what would happen to all the water if it was raining meatballs. But, it completely blew away my expectations. It was one of the best movies I’ve seen recently. I’m continually amazed at how incredible they’re doing 3D now. And this one had some beautiful animation. It also was filled with lots of laugh-out-loud moments and quotable lines. But what really stood out was the way it brought out some important truths/lessons without being in-your-face preachy. Here are the Top Ten Life Lessons from CWACOM…

  • You can accomplish anything if you stick with it and give it your best
  • The value and importance of creativity
  • Be yourself and people will love you for who you are, if they love you at all
  • Too much of anything is not good, especially if it’s junk food. Moderation is the key
  • Don’t take shortcuts to success
  • God don’t make no junk
  • Sometimes you’re working to try and please everyone to earn the love of someone you will never please
  • If you just keep piling up your trash, eventually, you’re going to have a huge problem
  • Sometimes the people who love you don’t have the words to communicate how they really feel, but love you just the same
  • Monkeys don’t have anything worthwhile on their minds

It’s all in there along with Mr. T and Doogie Howser, so how can you go wrong?
