The last time kids paid to watch crazy things fall from the sky, Disney’s Chicken Little gobbled up $135 million stateside. We think that bodes well for Sony’s Meatballs, the latest in the genre, in which a goofy scientific experiment goes awry, and the world gets hamburger rain and pancake tornados. But for a more informed take, we called Brandon Gray, president of BoxOfficeMojo.com. He predicts “it could mirror an animated film like Open Season,” another September kiddie release, which grossed a respectable $85 million. Palatable. — DM
