HOUSTON – In what is becoming something of a nasty habit, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, popularly – and more succinctly – known as NASA have released a stinging criticism of the 2009 animation film Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, branding the film ‘unrealistic’ and ‘dumb’.

“The technology shown in the film which purports to create food out of weather events is just not there yet,” said NASA Chief Administrator Charles F Bolden Jr. “The image of the main scientist as nerdy loner is anachronistic. I mean look at Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg. The events shown are preposterous and the humor regarding peanut allergies is inappropriate and – if you’ll excuse what I certainly don’t mean as a pun – tasteless.”
Phil Lord, who directed the film along with Chris Miller, responded with unnecessary levity to the accusations: “Are they stoned?”
“That’s neither here nor there,” replied NASA Chief Administrator Charles F Bolden Jr. “And even if we were that’s no excuse for scientific inaccuracy.”  
Asked if he would be going to see the brilliantly titled sequel Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, NASA Chief Administrator Charles F Bolden Jr. said he hadn’t decided, he might just download it.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is currently in theaters.
