Last weekend, The Chicklet and I got to see an advanced screening of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. The movie begins where the first one left off; scientist Flint Lockwood’s last invention was a hit, but soon turned miss when his town was overrun with food. Flint and his friends must leave Swallow Falls, for a animated Silicon Valley where Flint’s idol, Chester V houses his The Live Corp Company. From there, the story is a battle of good versus evil, and you don’t know until almost the very end who prevails.
My daughter enjoyed Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, so I knew she would enjoy the latest installment. As for my take on the film, I thought the animation was great and so was the plot and script. Sometimes during movies like these, I find myself bored or not entertained. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is a film that both kids and parents can enjoy.
Flint and his team of friends and furry animals make this a fun film to watch. My daughter most enjoyed Barry the Strawberry, and the other foodimals that encompass the Swallow Falls. Other foodimals in the film include shrimpanzees, melonheads, apple pie-thons, tacodile supremes, and melting butter that turns into “Parkay”. Uber cute.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 hits theaters Friday, September 27th, 2013. This 3D film is Rated PG.
Voices in the film include Bill Hader (Flint Lockwood), Anna Faris (Samantha Sparks), James Caan (Flint’s father Tim Lockwood), Neil Patrick Harris (Steve the Monkey), Benjamin Bratt (Manny), and Terry Crews (Officer Earl Devereaux).
It’s The Cubicle Chick and The Chicklet approved. 🙂
