Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2

Cody Cameron, Kris Pearn (2013)

U Certificate


Our Score
Jurassic Park meets Saturday Kitchen in this charmingly surreal sequel about the nerdy inventor who designed a water-into-food machine. Bill Hader again voices Flint Lockwood, who joins Live Corp, the company of Steve Jobs-type guru Chester V, to create "for the betterment of mankind". But he discovers that the machine he thought he had destroyed is still causing chaos, turning his home town into a jungle populated by food monsters. Warmed-up leftovers this movie may be, but the endless sight gags, continual daft puns ("There's a leek in my boat!") and strange "foodimals" - shrimpanzees, flamangos, tacodiles and slightly scary cheespiders - keep the heightened zaniness as explosively colourful as before. The frenetic action is peppered with ecological, five-a-day and know-who-your-friends-are messages and, while not as spontaneous or consistently delightful as its predecessor, the film's bright, frame-filling visuals provide another smartly tasty spectacle.


A scientist believes he has saved the world from his invention, a machine that accidentally turned water into food. However, he learns the device is still active and has created a race of food/animal hybrids that he must stop from running wild across the world. Animated comedy sequel, with the voices of Bill Hader, Anna Faris and James Caan.
