Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 Movie Synopsis
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 picks up where Sony Pictures Animation’s mouth-watering comedy left off. 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 [namely Sam Sparks (Anna Faris), concerned dad Tim Lockwood (James Caan), cameraman Manny (Benjamin Bratt), chicken mascot Brent McHale (Andy Samberg), macho policeman Officer Earl Devereaux (Terry Crews) and, of course, Steve the Monkey (Neil Patrick Harris)] embark on a dangerously delicious mission to battle hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, hippotatomuses, cheespiders and other foodimals to save the world – again!

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 Movie Review:
This is one trailer which I’ve watched at least 4 times before my previous movie screenings, and each time, the strawberry and Flint’s scream never failed to make me roll my eyes. With loads of puns used throughout the running time, including the “leek in the car” (leak), I was amazed by the names they created for the foodimals.
For kids, the film will be a good learning story about friendship (trusting your friends) and family (learning skills from dad). Otherwise, don’t look too much into the story and just be amazed by the colourful food-world and likeable foodimals. But I seriously wonder what do the group eat when they are on the mission, they are surrounded by living food, and yet, they are not supposed to eat them?
The countless cute characters might capture many girls’ hearts, but the Steve Jobs-lookalike character “Chester V” made me wonder if the film was trying to imply anything about the late Apple CEO’s personality. Voiced by Will Forte, you will know he is the villain with a weird motive right from the start.
I managed to watch the film in 3D, but there wasn’t anything amazing. I would say, watch it if you have to, with your kids, but digital will suffice.
