Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2

If you managed to catch the first Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, then it's no surprise to you that inventor Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader) and his friends were forced to flee the town of Swallow Falls after creating havoc and destroying the town with a food storm caused by his machine. Flint accepts an invitation from his inventor idol Chester (Will Forte) to join the Live Food Corp to prove his mettle as an inventor and join the "Thinquanots" (a special team of geniuses).

When Flint gets back to Swallow Falls he discovers his machine is not only still working, it's creating food monsters with frighteningly human qualities - hipotatomuses, flamangoes, and even shrimpanzees! Soon they'll learn to swim, and they're off to take a bite out of the Statue of Liberty, the question is whether Flint and his friends can stop them...

The Bottom Line

If you're a fan of puns, there's no shortage of material to love in every scene of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, much like the first film the creators have put a no-holds-barred rule on visual jokes based on literal turns of phrase, like when there's a "leek" in the boat, and it does in fact turn out to be a walking, talking onion variety veggie on the war path. The first film was jam-packed with social commentary on how to eat right, but the sequel edges more towards playing up the walking, talking metaphors (which look fantastic on the big screen with eye-popping colors and bonkers imagery you would never see anywhere else, watermelophants anyone?) Despite it's love of word play and the fantastic set of comedians voicing the characters that you might know from Saturday Night Live (Bill Hader, Will Forte, Anna Faris, Andy Samberg and Neil Patrick Harris) the film still carries an important message about questioning the ethics of large corporations - Flint's idol Chester isn't the humanitarian inventor in search of pure knowledge and good that he presents himself as.

Unfortunately, the plot of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 is slightly more complicated than it needs to be, and younger fans of the films might find it hard to follow, but the wise-cracking self-aware jokes almost make up for it.
