Title: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2

Comedy: Animation/Comedy

by: Lili Pad

Flint Lockwood, a genius inventor is finally being recognized as he was invited to join the Live Corp Company by his idol Chester V, where the best and brightest inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind.

Chester’s right-hand-gal – and one of his greatest inventions – is Barb, a highly evolved orangutan with a human brain, who is also devious, manipulative and likes to wear lipstick. It’s always been Flint’s dream to be recognized as a great inventor, but everything changes when he discovers that his most infamous machine (which turns water into food) is still operating and is now creating food-animal hybrids – “foodimals!” With the fate of humanity in his hands, Chester sends Flint and his friends on a dangerously delicious mission, battling hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, apple pie-thons, double bacon cheespiders and other food creatures to save the world again!

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 doesn’t stray too far from the mold, but the screen practically spills over the visual marvels, and has a kid-friendly self-awareness to the humor.The animation is inventive and elastic. The dialogue is shamelessly funny and the tone is light-hearted and fun. The scrumptious sequel follows the same recipe as the 2009 movie.
