    This sequel is somewhat of a misnomer, as it does not feature food falling from the skies. It does, however, have the more endearing 'foodimals.' These are what save the film. It is not as funny as I remember the original being, but it does have a few good laughs. Be warned that it has quite a bit of crude humor as well, which is a bit detracting from the movie. I never cared much for Flint's pet monkey Steve, but there is a welcome new character in the ape Barb; she is fun to watch. As is the funny strawberry Berry.

    As a fan of the first movie, I thought this one was pretty weird. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't good enough for a thumbs up. Part of its problem is that it relies on quite a bit of potty humor which we generally roll our eyes at in our house. There are some pretty good jokes throughout the film but more than 50 percent of them miss the mark.

    Like many sequels, this one does not live up to the original. The plot has many holes and most of the laughs come from food puns. At its core, the movie targets young children with a message that "A bully turned friend is a friend to the end." That message gets slightly lost with a villain that is extremely plain and vanilla. That being said, I really enjoyed the first film, and I think the target audience of this film will enjoy it too. As an adult, it wasn't my favorite animated movie, but it was definitely far from the worst I have seen as well. If you have kids, then it is certainly worth the watch. If not, wait for redbox.

    Parental Rating note: Rated PG because of limited crude humor (jokes related to poop). Otherwise, it is safe for everyone.

    Bottom line, if you liked the first one, you will probably like the second one. The same fun characters and zany brand of humor is here. While perhaps not as sharp as the first, the addition of the foodimals makes it more fun for younger kids who will enjoy the antics of the cute strawberry or the dangerous Tacodile (a crocodile made out of a taco). There are puns and fun aplenty, and adults may enjoy the not so subtle parody of Steve Jobs... See Full Review

    It is good for kids. Older kids may find it not as fun as the first one. But still is ok.

    In a Nutshell: Swallow Falls has evolved into an island inhabited of living food creatures, triggered by a machine that young scientist Flint Lockwood designed in the first movie. Flint returns to his former home with a crew of endearing characters in order to restore the island to normalcy before the food-beings swim onto the mainland and destroy it as well (a la Jurassic Park.)

    Things I liked: The animation is colorful, detailed, and very imaginative. I can just picture the film designers sitting around a board room table, brainstorming all of the inventive food creatures in the movie which include watermelephant, susheep, shrimpanzee, flamangos, bananostrich, cheesespider, and more. Most of them are pretty clever and creative. I love the way the dad’s eyebrows cover his eyes and show all of the expression on his face. He is voiced by the legendary James Caan. Barry the Strawberry leads the cute factor in the movie. The little sounds he makes are sure to please every little girl in the audience.

    Things I didn’t like: Be prepared for lots and lots of food puns. You had to know it was coming. Some are witty like when the dad captains a small vessel and yells “There’s a leak in the boat!” The camera then zooms over to a little green leek who yells back at the dad, equally frightened. Some of the food puns will make you laugh and roll your eyes at the same time, such as “It’s jammed!”, “We’re toast!” or “This is totally bananas!” If you liked the first movie, there really isn’t much you won’t like in this delicious sequel.

    Uplifting theme: It’s hard to say, really. The efforts of Flint and his friends don’t really reign in the mayhem on the island, but somehow it’s ok in the end. There is an evil character (SPOILER ALERT) who appears good, but his greedy motivations are revealed in the end. So, the moral of the story? Be kind? Try hard? Have loyal friends?

    Funny line: Many of the funny lines are spoken by the beloved cop Earl Devereaux, voiced by Terry Crews, such as “I’m not a barista…I’m a polista” and “Police tape – the one thing I can’t break.” The kids in the audience I sat in squealed with laughter when he repeats a phrase from the first movie “It’s enough to make a grown man cry, but not this man…get back in there, tear!” He’s so tough he can force his own tears to return to his eyeball, and make chest hairs to grow on demand.

    Things to look for: - The pickle who wears fishing lures as earrings.
    - Watch for the “Cheese, Grommit” hand motion when you hear
    someone say “It’s made of cheese!” (I loved the Wallace &
    Grommit shorts.)
    - Simon, the Electronic Memory Game

    Tips for parents: It’s easy as pie to enjoy this movie. If you’ve seen the first “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”, then you’re already familiar with most of the characters and know what you’re in for…lots of silliness and chuckles. There is no bad language or inappropriate material, unless you’re offended when it’s announced that someone cut the cheese.

    Grade: B+

    Probably not worth your time on your own, but it's a good one for the young kids. The movie is jam-packed with puns that set the kids off in giggle fits and may or may not even make you crack a smile here and there.

    I want to say it was imaginative...but sometimes it was just plain weird.

    Will they find the out-of-control food machine in time? Will Flint see his hero and mentor as he truly is? Will Swallow Falls ever return to normal? Or will it remain a Jurassic food park?

    All questions are nicely answered for kids and grown-ups alike. This has all of the charm, and more, from the first film. Plus, a new song from The Beatles’ legend Sir Paul McCartney. How can you go wrong?... See Full Review

    Thankfully the script contains a healthy helping of jokes for the parents and plenty of imaginative creatures for young viewers. Some brief moments of peril (involving a hungry cheese throwing hamburger spider and the threat of falling into a giant food grinder) along with moments of bullying and an apparent death are the movie’s biggest concerns for parents of little children...

    The out-of-nowhere novelty and delight of Sony Animation’s “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,” based on Judi and Ronald Barrett’s children’s book, is missing in “Meatballs 2.” The design and color palette is as glorious as ever. But the laughs are few and innovations fewer in this generally winded knock-off... See Full Review
