Flint Lockwood (Hader) is a child inventor who grows up to be his small island community’s constant annoyance. Most of Flint’s inventions don’t work at best and cause havoc to the community at worst. That is, until he finds a way to turn water into a unlimited variety of foods. This is a breakthrough for the island population that has eaten only sardines since the rest of the world stopped eating the fish that supported the island’s economy.

However, accident prone Flint’s invention malfunctions and rockets into the atmosphere. Soon after, the sky begins raining cheeseburgers and the town rejoices. Flint forms a friendship with weather girl Sam Sparks (Faris) who is fascinated by the prospect of food raining from the sky.
