Cloudy with a Chance of Surrogates

This weekend Chrissy and I went to a drive-in movie theater.  It was my first time at a drive-in.

It was a long drive to Goochland, but well worth it for the experience.  It was $7/person to get in, which allowed us to see two movies – Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Surrogates.

We got a free large popcorn with our admission and there was unlimited refills on coffee.  Everything at the snack bar was *cheap*!  We ended up pretty much eating dinner there (for $10.)

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was pretty terrible.

Surrogates had potential as a story, but I think it fell flat.  The whole idea behind the movie would have been one of several threads in a good sci-fi book, and the world the story took place in wasn’t very well developed.  They didn’t seem to consider at all how other technologies would have advanced in a world with the surrogate technology.  They just dropped this idea into a world that was otherwise just like today.
