It's raining burgers, hallelujah, it's raining burgers, amen

A local scientist is often regarded as a failure until he inadvertently invents a machine that can make food fall from the sky.

When hard times hit Swallow Falls, its townspeople can only afford to eat sardines. Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader), a failed inventor, thinks he has the answer to the town's crisis. He builds a machine that converts water into food, and becomes a local hero when tasty treats fall from the sky like rain. But when the machine spins out of control and threatens to bury the whole world under giant mounds of food, Flint finds he may have bitten off more than he can chew.
