Inventor Flint Lockwood thought he saved the world when he destroyed his most infamous invention -- a machine that turned water into food causing cheeseburger rain and spaghetti tornadoes. But Flint soon learns that his invention survived and is now creating food-animals -- "foodimals!" Flint and his friends embark on a dangerously delicious mission to battle hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, hippotatomuses, cheespiders and other foodimals to save the world -- again!
Animated Comedy - Like the first film, this is an animated fantasy comedy, but it's
less action oriented and a lot more gentle than the first film. But
fans of the first film should be pleased all the same. There are
some mildly scary moments and images but overall this should be safe
viewing for kids.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average Not as inventive as the original, 'Cloudy 2' may still have enough razzle dazzle to keep the kids entertained.
Washington PostFull Review Below Average Kids will chuckle, for sure. But parents who were pleasantly surprised by the original film's intelligence will miss Lord and Miller's guiding hands, as what once felt so funny now leaves a stale taste.
NY PostFull Review Poor 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2' way underdone.
