Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2: Movie Review

October 1st, 2013 by

Do you love food? Do you love puns? Do you love stories inspired by children’s books? Did you just do this in response to the previous questions?


If you answered YES to these three questions, then guess what — you would be best friends with us here at Kidsmomo! Also, then you’ll probably enjoy Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, the new movie in theaters now.

It’s been almost four years since the first movie, based on the original book written by Judi Barrett and illustrated by Ron Barrett. We looooooooooooved that movie (check out our enthusiastic review — with visuals!). So, we were overjoyed to hear about the sequel! We couldn’t wait for our eyes to go like this at the theater:


Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 doesn’t follow the plot of the book at all, but that’s okay because, hello, giant food? AWESOME. Also food animals — like flamangos, tacodiles, hippotatomus, and shrimpanzees! (!!!!!!!!!!)

We liked the first movie better, but as you can tell, we still enjoyed the new one. If you’re not sure whether to see it, try the original first!

And be sure to eat beforehand, because otherwise, all the visuals are sure to make you hungry!


Of course, if you’ve already seen either movie, then we want to hear YOUR review! Tell us your opinion in the comments and get typing like Flint Lockwood:



Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Movie Review

Imagine this: You’re taking a stroll through the park on a hot day. You casually stretch out your hands, palms facing up. And *PLOP!* — some ice cream falls from the sky!

Yes? No? Well, we certainly wouldn’t mind! (Karen dreams of mint chip drizzle, while Nancy would want a fruity sorbet snowfall.)

But why stop with ice cream? Why not ravioli rain, hamburger hail, or a salami storm? Our imaginations ran wild once we saw Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs at the movie theater! Check out our review below, where we give the movie two big SMILEY FACES!

Can’t stand looking at our hideously drawn faces? (Hey, not everyone has the talents of Ron Barrett…) Download the audio!
