Overview

This sequel picks up literally where the first one left off.  Now that Flint Lockwood’s food making invention has become very popular, he is approached by a famous inventor, Chester V, to come work for him at Live Corp and make new and better inventions.  Since this has been Flint’s lifelong dream to work for this famous inventor he accepts with the support of his friends and family.

After working for a few months at Live Corp and feeling a little down on himself he is given the opportunity to go back to Swallow Falls to shut down his invention who is still making food.  Flint gets his team together and the embark on their adventure to reclaim the island of Swallow Falls.

Positive Content

The theme of family and trusting in your friends is interlaced throughout the movie.  There were times where Flint would leave his friends but the grand moral of the flick is to have good friends and how to be a good friend.

There is also a theme of not reading a book by its cover.  Part of the conflict in this film is thinking that the food animals were all bad but after a little investigation they find just the opposite.

Questionable Content

There is some hinting toward the thought of this food evolving but the entire movie is based around the idea that is just as equally preposterous so I really don’t see this as too much of an issue.

There is one instance where Steve the monkey is coloring with his fecies and the others think it is a brown crayon.

Sexual content

There is some puffy face kissing between Flint and Sam at the beginning and end of the movie.

Drugs/alcohol content

None.

Profane language

Cr-p balls is used twice.

Conclusion

4

 

 

I give Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, 4 out of 5 stars.  I took my son who is five to this movie because we simply loved the first one and this sequel definitely delivered.  There were many, many times where I was laughing uncontrollably.  My son thought that all the food animals were awesome.  There was a twist that I didn’t see coming and several others that would keep the younger viewers intrigued.  My only knock on the movie is the two profane words used.  They didn’t need to put them in and they way they are used a simple ‘shucks’ or ‘darn’ would have sufficed.  But now I’m arguing semantics.  All in all, good movie and we really enjoyed it.
