CLOUDY brightens weekend box office
The family animated movie CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 scored the second highest opening box office since July. It was followed by PRISONERS, RUSH, BAGGAGE CLAIM and DON JON. At +2 Movieguide® acceptability CLOUDY is a ray of sunshine in a fall filled with movies rated extreme caution or worse.   The profoundly Christian movie ALONE, YET NOT ALONE did well in very limited release. This coming weekend, October 4, sees the limited release of two Christian movies, GRACE UNPLUGGED and LINSANITY, both of which are highly rated by Movieguide®.
