Storyline

Flint Lockwood is an aspiring scientist who lives in Swallow Falls, a tiny island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean that has sardines as the base of its economy, but the Baby Brent Sardines cannery has closed and gone bankrupt due to worldwide disgust of sardines as food, which was all the residents had to eat from then on. Flint lives with Tim, his widowed father, and his pet monkey, Steve. When Flint turns the machine back on, it ends up rocketing through town which accidentally destroys the town square of the Sardine Land before ultimately rocketing up into the sky.
