KJ's Review of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2
Starting immediately when the first film ends, "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" has an entire world leftover to build upon, and does it completely explore it to it's fullest? No, but that is okay, because I would love to have another sequel made. I highly enjoyed watching these characters explore the leftover world that Flint Lockwood's machine has created, even if it is a much more kid-friendly film and some of the jokes are hit or miss. The visuals are bright and colourful and the 3D really does stand out. It may not be as cleverly written, but for a kids film, this picture has a a few more by-the-numbers story elements that seem all too familiar. It does not take full advantage of it's plot, but the food puns are a mile-a-minute and will keep you laughing the entire duration. Great for kids, and still pleasant enough for adults. This sequel is a lot of fun!
