Audience Reviews for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2

  • Oct 30, 2014
    It's a loosely-written story that only the duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller could sketch out. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 dives in deeper in its appetizing-utopian realm, and it's a bit unnecessary at times, but it's still able to provide hilarity, colorful personalities and heartfelt vibes, that though it isn't as striking as its predecessor, it's still solid. 3.5/5

    Admittedly I didn't finish "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2." Couldn't, in fact. I found the animation a bit annoying, and I was not terribly interested in the inventor Flint Lockwood's story. Perhaps I've been spoiled by the amazing Pixar fare, like the "Toy Story" or "Shrek" films, which are more fun to watch.

    Much more effort involved than your typical "animated kid's movie sequel made in the 21st century". The story might not be quite as straightforward as the first Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, but it ups the fantastical quality, making me appreciate it even more. Such a great hangover film.

    A definite step down from the original but still fun inventive and beautifully drawn. Hader's voice brings much depth to his character and also good are Forte, Caan and Faris. I think it has a good moral for kids and wry enough humor for adults. 02-16-2014
