“Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2” is a 2013 American 3D computer animated comic science fiction film. Wow! That just about covers everything. It is a sequel to the 2009 movie that was loosely based on Judi and Ron Barrett's book. The movie was released September 27 and is rated PG.
"Cloudy 2" continues right after the first film where a food making satellite gets out of control. However the young inventor, Flint, voiced by Bill Hader of Saturday Night Live, and his friends manage to get it stopped. In this sequel, Flint and his friends are forced to leave their homes. When the food machine awakens, this time it produces different food beasts. They must return to save the world.
Some of the food beasts are the favorite characters of the kids in the audience. Beasts like hungry tacodile, shrimpanzees, mosquitoasts and watermelophants. Other voices in the cast include James Caan as Tim Lockwood, Anna Faris as Sam Sparks; and the great Andy Samberg as Brent McHale. Benjamin Bratt voices Manny.
The kids enjoy the characters and the adults will appreciate the story line and may remember the plot from the earlier popular books.
