cloudy_with_a_chance_of_meatballs_2Reviews for this film from our members:

  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: La secuela de la delirante propuesta de 2009 pisa el acelerador en una aventura despampanante en lo técnico y absolutamente chalada en lo narrativo. Quien disfrutó la anterior gozará abandonándose a un delicioso festival de lisergia con mensaje.
  • Edwin Arnaudin @ Ashvegas
    • Excerpt: The screenwriting team of Jonathan M. Goldstein and John Francis Daley (their humor connecting way more than in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone) and Erica Rivinoja steadily dole out inventive names that the animators are keen to concoct.
  • Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com
    • Excerpt: Cloudy 2 is a slight but definite improvement over its predecessor.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: Where I expected a dullard of a sequel, “Cloud with a Chance of Meatballs 2” is a charming and fun film that kids can enjoy and adults will still chuckle about.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: The many nods to “Jurassic Park” will more than likely fly over the heads of the film’s target audience while hitting adults over their noggins and the Apple/Google-like Live Corp with its Steve Jobs inspired CEO skirts over parody rather than mining it.
  • Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder
    • Excerpt: As imaginative as the flora and fauna appear to be, the rest of the movie’s pedestrian aesthetic adds to a general sense of uninspired familiarity.
  • Billy Donnelly @ This Is Infamous
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: Like its predecessor, the film is silly for the sake of being silly, and … it buys into that premise wholeheartedly, which is the film’s most significant charm.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Imaginative, silly and noisy – it’s a tasty second helping that’s filled with family-friendly fun.
  • Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 isn’t the most original tale or even the funniest, but it is pleasant.
  • Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: Not quite as fresh as the original but offers more than just re-heated leftovers.
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
  • Ross Miller @ Thoughts On Film
    • Excerpt: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 still succeeds at what it sets out to do; be a fun and funny animated adventure.
  • [New – 3/20/14] | Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix
  • Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema
    • Excerpt: An appetizing blend of fun and imagination
  • Amir Siregar @ Flick Magazine [Indonesian]
  • Amber Wilkinson @ Eye For Film
    • Excerpt: Despite the lack of invention in the title, the content of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 is rich and strange, although its trippy, LSD vibe becomes almost overwhelming in places.
