Frances "Fran" Lockwood is a character in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. She was the wife of Tim Lockwood and the mother of Flint and owner of Fran Lockwood Shipbuilding Co. and was very supportive of Flint in his wish to be an inventor.
Fran was a loving, encouraging, supportive, sweet, friendly, and caring mother. She was the main reason why Flint continued his love for inventing even though he failed and was humiliated over and over again.
After Flint was humiliated due to the failure of his Spray-On Shoes, it was his mother who encouraged him to not give up on his dream of inventing and even made for him a white lab coat to show her support for her son. The coat would continue to be worn by Flint for the rest of his life.
When Flint was a high school student, he had a photo of her inside his locker.
In Coat of Harms, he tries to tell Sam how his mom gave him the labcoat, having a copy of the sake picture in his lab.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Nearly ten years Prior to the creation of the FLDSMDFR, Fran has passed away and her death affected both Flint and Tim heavily. After her death, Tim proved to have difficulties raising his son due to not knowing how to properly show him the encouragement his mother used to show him. However, Flint would continue to be encouraged by the words she spoke to him in his youth throughout his inventing carrier.
In the end credits, her ghost is seen haunting Patrick Patrickson.
