Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 Review

Disclosure: Our family received complimentary passes to the screening.


Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 picks up where Sony Pictures Animation’s 2009 hit comedy left off. Inventor Flint Lockwood’s genius is finally being recognized as he’s invited by his idol Chester V to join The Live Corp Company, 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. 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 – to battle hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, hippotatomuses, cheespiders and other food creatures to save the world again!

I thought Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 was a great movie full of adventure and humor.

From the start the movie was full of laughs, as well as "oohs" and "aahs" from both kids and adults.

The kids loved seeing all the different inventions Flint created while working at The Live Corp., the company founded by his idol, Chester V, who secretly plotted to get Flint working for him for one specific reason (which I won't spoil).

Chester eventually sends Flint on a mission, and on this mission Flint and his pals encounter the foodimals. 

The foodimals were such a hit with the audience. I thought the names and the foodimals themselves were so creative - susheep, tacodiles, bananaostriches, and fruit cockatiels were just a few of the creatures that were part of the story.

There was also a lot of humor in the movie. My middle son loved whenever Steve the Monkey was on screen, and he couldn't stop laughing when Flint screamed (and screamed and screamed) when he saw Barry the Strawberry up close.

There were other funny moments throughout the movie that only adults will be able to understand (like a joke that involved butter in the movie).

Overall our family really enjoyed Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. The animation was fantastic, and the story was very imaginative and engaging.
