It facilities on Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader), a struggling inventor who lastly finds success by constructing a machine that actually makes meals rain from the sky. However, this goes a bit of off the rails, as one would possibly count on, and animated hijinks ensue. All the whereas, Flint is contending along with his complicated relationship along with his father, Tim Lockwood, performed by Caan. Tim is a person’s man who doesn’t nor has he ever understood Flint’s innovations. They are polar opposites on this world, as dad and mom and their kids usually could be.
After a harrowing mission to cease the machine, Flint reunites along with his father for a post-chaos father/son second.
