Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 picks up where Sony Pictures Animation's 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, who is also devious, manipulative and likes to wear lipstick). It's always been Flint's dream to be recognized as a great… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Imagine a Jurassic Park constructed entirely out of whatever foodstuff best satisfies your appetite for a pun."
‑ Catherine Bray, Time Out
"Even with new cooks in the kitchen, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 is a completely delicious dish, as it adds a handful of great new ingredients to a familiar recipe."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, TheWrap
"Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2 is an example of a superior animated sequel that builds on the ideas of the first film and enriches its mythology."
‑ Scott Mendelson, Forbes
"The film is missing the originality and jokes that Phil Lord and Chris Miller brought to the first one, but it has one killer trick up its sleeve in the shape of the foodimals."
‑ Martin Roberts, Fan The Fire
"Ravishing, magnificently silly sequel to the nutty 2009 animated hit...Bizarre creations run amok in a world that looks like a gigantic tossed salad. It really is a delight to behold. Perfect family movie fare."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"The animation is inventive and elastic, the dialogue zippy and shamelessly punny, and the tone lighthearted and fun, even if on a whole it's not quite a full meal."
‑ Keith Staskiewicz, Entertainment Weekly
"A humorous yet unfocused romp, so unwilling to settle on a single theme that hyperactivity medication should be handed out with the 3-D glasses."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"Man cannot survive on puns alone, but it seems kids will happily eat them up."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"Should be re-titled Periods of Satire, Broken by Scattered Jokes of Varying Quality, Sun-Burning Colour and Sudden Storm-Surge-Pacing."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"Visually extraordinary, this rainbow-coloured 3D animated sequel set in an eco system of living food, is as whimsical as the original 2009 film, even though its plot is lumpy enough to cause indigestion"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"Suspend your ideas about what is logical or truly real and just have a nice 90-minute escape into the brightly colorful world directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn and their team have created here."
‑ Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times
"This scrumptious sequel follows the same recipe as the 2009 original."
‑ David Hiltbrand, Philadelphia Inquirer
"It's competent and looks delectable but fails to capture the same bright and breezy flavour. It's a cheeseburger to the original's prime cut."
‑ , Daily Record [UK]
"If you think the food metaphors and similes I've whipped up in this review became increasingly tiresome and childish, then that perhaps is the best analogy of all for describing Cloudy 2."
‑ Matt Neal, The Standard
"The script is brimming with knowing puns, some of the technical terms, though, are so incomprehensible it's an effort to stay with the verbal inanity."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
