The sequel to 2009’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs picks up exactly eight minutes after the end of the first animated film.
Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader) gets the opportunity to work with his idol Chester V (Will Forte) at Live Corp thanks to the worldwide recognition from his infamous machine. However, it soon becomes apparent that Lockwood’s machine is churning out menacing food-animal hybrids and he must reunite with his friends to save the day… again.
This is another solid entertaining film from Sony Pictures. Between the Saturday Night Live alumni voice actors and the pun-filled script, this sequel ticks all the right boxes for both adults and children.
Special mention should be made of the food-animals or ‘foodimals’. Clever creations such as a taco/crocodile that becomes a ‘tacodile’ and a watermelon/elephant or ‘watermelephant’ provide continuous amusement throughout.
