The animation is inventive and elastic, the dialogue zippy and shamelessly punny, and the tone lighthearted and fun, even if on a whole it's not quite a full meal.

It's competent and looks delectable but fails to capture the same bright and breezy flavour. It's a cheeseburger to the original's prime cut.

The film is missing the originality and jokes that Phil Lord and Chris Miller brought to the first one, but it has one killer trick up its sleeve in the shape of the foodimals.

If you think the food metaphors and similes I've whipped up in this review became increasingly tiresome and childish, then that perhaps is the best analogy of all for describing Cloudy 2.

Ravishing, magnificently silly sequel to the nutty 2009 animated hit...Bizarre creations run amok in a world that looks like a gigantic tossed salad. It really is a delight to behold. Perfect family movie fare.

Visually extraordinary, this rainbow-coloured 3D animated sequel set in an eco system of living food, is as whimsical as the original 2009 film, even though its plot is lumpy enough to cause indigestion

The script is brimming with knowing puns, some of the technical terms, though, are so incomprehensible it's an effort to stay with the verbal inanity.

The comedy is far too post-modern this time to truly engage us, but it's such a riot of colourful mayhem that we're never bored.

The original Cloudy didn't have the warmth of Despicable Me or the snark of Shrek. But it did have more humour than this new film.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 doesn't stray too far from the mold, but the screen practically spills over with visual marvels, and there's a kid-friendly self-awareness to the humor.

Thankfully, what the film lacks in suspense it delivers in plain old fun. Whether it's a favorite dish, a ragged stuffed animal, or an animated movie, sometimes the comfort that comes along with fun is sustenance enough.

Audience Reviews for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is just as good as its predecessor in my opinion. It was always going to be tough making a sequel that was somehow different but still about food, at first I thought they'd made a mistake by making said food come to life but it didn't take me long to change my mind. It's the silliness and fun that really make the film, the almost enforced curricular moral guidance that come with animated films is kept to an acceptable level and like the first film, the animation is unique and special. Shame Mr. T and Bruce Campbell didn't return for their voice talents but that's just me being nerdy.

Something big was leftover.

Good Entertainment! Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, a film that gives Flint Lockwood and the gang an extra journey to this whimsical world. And surprisingly, it turns out to be all fun with wonderful animation and some memorable humor, especially when it involves puns. It's still extravagant for it to have a sequel, but if you're hungry for more of these delightful characters and their preposterous adventures, then this film is a worthwhile treat.

After the disastrous food storm in the first film, Flint and his friends are forced to leave the town. Flint accepts the invitation from his idol Chester V to join The Live Corp Company, which has been tasked to clean the island, and where the best inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind. When Flint discovers that his machine still operates and now creates mutant food beasts like living pickles, hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees and apple pie-thons, he and his friends must return to save the world.

I must first admit that I own the first installment on blu-ray, but I honestly don't remember if I've watched it. I'm pretty sure I get the jest of it and the beginning of this sequel does a great job explaining the events of the first movie. Having said that, you don't need to see it to enjoy this, because it's pretty good on it's own. It picks up right where it left off, and Flint(Bill Hader) is recruited by an "Apple" type science company. Long story short the food he created has mutated and taken over their city, and he has to help stop/contain them. The movie has some twists and turns, and it's very, very funny. Not to mention the animation in this is awesome. The Tacodile is something to be seen for sure. We took Grant and he enjoyed it, so kids will definitely love it. Good news is, so will the parents. I've seen much worse animated movies out there. Hopefully the make another one, cause this franchise is pretty unique and I'd love to see where it goes next.
